I was pleased to meet up with the Chairman of Walsall FC Leigh Pomlett.  It is vital that the Premier League come up with the formula that ensures other clubs  have access to the financial support. The EFL is asking for a 75:25 split. The footballers  in the Premier League  come through the lower leagues. This financial formula ensures money flows back to the grass roots. The EFL clubs support a Regulator to ensure that there is proper oversight of funding and due diligence on owners of football clubs and that the fans voice is heard..
