Dagenham & Redbridge managing director Steve Thompson believes a £15-20m bail-out package is needed for National League clubs.

Following the news today that casts considerable doubt on the 2020/21 season for various non-league clubs, Thompson has said that the Government have to step in to help.

He told the PA news agency: “I believe that a package of between £15-20million for the National League would enable those clubs to start behind closed doors.

“The clubs are going to need this assistance from the Government. It is only the Government that can give us this money, there is no point going to the Premier League again, they have got their own problems with this.”
