�1m Premier boost

Football: The Premier League has demonstrated its commitment to football outside the top flight by making a one-off payment of �1m to the 68 member clubs of the Football Conference.

This solidarity payment has been made to soften the financial blow suffered by clubs in the Football Conference - competing in the Blue Square Premier, North and South - this season due to unfortunate economic circumstances.

Recognising this wonderful gesture, Brian Lee, Chairman of the Conference stated: “We are extremely grateful to the Premier League in demonstrating their support to our members at a time when our clubs are feeling the pinch, not only at the loss of our TV contract but the decline of anticipated income due to the financial position generally."
