Season summary[edit]

After Stan Ternent moved to Burnley in the summer of 1998, Bury appointed Neil Warnock as manager,[1] but with sales of players such as Paul Butler to Sunderland and a cash crisis at the club, Bury suffered relegation from Division One in May 1999, but only on goals scored.[2] If Bury had scored one more goal, they would have survived at the expense of Port Vale.
