NON-LEAGUE needs you. The game at this level is staring into the abyss. With- out your intervention, clubs will cease to exist.
This is your time to ride to the rescue to save community assets from going to the wall.
WE NEED YOU!
FINALS DAY: QUARTET GET SET FOR A WEMBLEY SHOWDOWN
Crisis-hit clubs in desperate plea for cash lifeline
We’re not asking for vast sums, but your assistance in this hour of need. Just a fraction of your money will go a long way and make a huge difference.
All football has been suspended indefinitely and, with it, the oxygen this level of the game needs to survive has been cut off.
While much of the top end of football has time to reflect, our clubs are in immediate danger and their very existence is under threat.
Non-League has been the starting ground for a num- ber of successful players. Jamie Vardy won the Pre- mier League just six years after he was playing for Stocksbridge Park Steels.
Chris Smalling is an FA Cup winner having started at Maidstone United, Tyrone Mings learnt his craft at Yate Town and Chip- penham Town, while Nick Pope was nurtured at Bury Town. All four are recent England internationals.
In today’s NLP, clubs, players and managers from up and down the land are appealing for your help to keep the heart of the game in this country beating.
THE ORIGINAL AND THE BEST
Like you, Non-League football will play a big role in getting society as a whole back on its feet. Please don’t underestimate the value of our clubs to our communities. Do what is right for the beautiful game.
Please don’t forget us.
