The Board of the National League have agreed to mount a campaign to try to persuade the Government to reverse its decision to offer loans instead of grants to our member clubs.
Part of this campaign is the launch of an online petition via Change.org.
We urge Fleet supporters to not only sign the petition but share it as widely as possible amongst you family, friends and social media contacts.
The effect that this pandemic has had on all our 66 community clubs is immeasurable and we’re now only asking the government to extend the support they originally offered.
Our clubs play an immeasurable role in communities all over the UK and provide immense structures of support for many.
Current government loan offers have moved the financial goalposts mid-season and jeopardised the future of our clubs.
Without adequate and fair funding, the National League will not survive, with consequences felt by thousands of players, supporters and club staff across the UK for many years to come.
