FC Halifax Town boss Pete Wild says there has to be greater clarity about the National League’s plan for clubs to vote on the fate of the 2019-20 season.

Wild is unhappy that the vote has been organised before clubs know exactly what the consequences will be.

“I don’t know how they can vote to end the season when we don’t know what will happen with promotion and relegation,” said the Town boss, who was also disappointed that the Premier League’s cash injection – which amounts to just £58,333 for each National League club – is only an advance on money from next season, not additional financial help.

“I understand why they’re doing it, and I understand the money that we thought was going to come from the Premier League has now transpired to just be an advance on payments for next year.

“Financially the club won’t be able to live off that, they’ll need that money next year to make the books balance.”
