IT has been confirmed that Bradford (Park Avenue) will receive just under £15,000 in payment from the Premier League, while their status in the Vanarama National League North finally looks set to be resolved next week.

The National League Board have recommended that clubs in their three divisions vote to end the season.

Assuming that happens, clubs will vote to determine the outcomes of the season, the result of which Avenue will be following closely, as they sit 12 points from safety.

In a statement released yesterday evening, the National League Board said: “£2m of funds have been received from the Premier League, which is money brought forward from the 2020/21 season.

“This money will be distributed next week as an advance payment to clubs.

“The amount for National Division clubs is £58,333 and the amount for North and South clubs is £13,636.”

They added: “The Board’s resolution is that the playing seasons for the National League, National League North and National League South shall immediately end for all fixtures scheduled up to and including April 25.

“The Board recommends clubs vote for this resolution.

“If that resolution is passed, and the remaining ‘normal season’ league matches are cancelled, the league will then immediately proceed with a poll of North and South clubs to determine the outcomes of the season across those divisions.

“This will be followed by a vote to determine the outcomes of the season in the National Division.”

All 24 member clubs in the National Division will have a vote, but the National League North and South only have four votes per league (32 overall between the three divisions).

In the case of an equality of votes, the Chairman of the League shall be entitled to a casting vote.
