Reflecting on their decision, National League Chairman, Brian Barwick, said: “I am delighted that the relationship between the Premier League and The National League remains so strong.
“We are very grateful that the Premier League have advanced us monies to be able to distribute to our clubs in the coming days.
“It is a gesture that will bring some welcome relief to many of the clubs in our league. It is appreciated”.
General Manager Mark Hearle added ' We echo Mr Barwick's sentiments in saying that the payment bring's some relief to the football club in these very difficult times being faced by us all. We would also like to thank the Premier League for their support of all club's at steps one and two'.
