QPR1st wishes to offer sympathy to the fans and employees of Bury Football Club. As a Supporters Trust we are part of a national movement that believes that Football clubs should be recognised and protected as vital community assets.
Unfortunately as we know from QPR’s own history, clubs are too often treated as commodities to be exploited by speculators who prove themselves to be incompetent, unscrupulous or both. It is difficult to think of any British industry that impacts on the lives of so many and yet is so badly regulated and governed.
The expulsion of Bury and the ongoing decline of grassroots football in this country whilst obscene sums of money are being splashed about and pocketed in the premier league provides a undeniable case for radical reform. If the football league does not have the will or authority to achieve this then the only solution is Government intervention.
