The football fans without a team
When Bury FC was expelled from the English Football League in August 2019, its supporters were left with no team to follow and a hole in their Saturday afternoons.
When the turnstiles closed for the last time at Bury's ground, Gigg Lane, fans left shirts, scarves, flags and messages outside.
Some of them are inscribed with the words "Dale out" - a reference to the deeply unpopular owner who bought the club for a £1 and didn't pay the players for weeks on end.
A new club, named Bury AFC after a vote among fans, has applied to join the North West Counties League. They are looking into ground-sharing for the 2020-21 season and hope, eventually, to play at Gigg Lane.
