BBC Sport: EFL 'failed to execute rules' on finance with Bury

The Football League has been accused of "failing to execute" its own rules in the demise of Bury earlier this year.

EFL executive chair Debbie Jevans was called to give evidence at the start of a select committee inquiry into football governance.

Damian Collins told Jevans that, in his view, the EFL had not been robust enough in challenging the takeover of Bury for £1 by Steve Dale in 2018.

"The EFL failed in its duty to execute its own rules," said Collins, the chairman of the Digital Culture Media and Sport select committee.
