MORE clubs have hit out over the distribution of funding by the Vanarama National League.

Earlier this week, it was announced that the National League would be receiving £10million in order to compensate for no fans being allowed in grounds at present.

However, it has since been reported that there will be wide disparity in funding for those in the National League and clubs in the National Leagues North and South.

Despite an average crowd of 2,705 last term, York City are set to receive £36,000 a month, whereas clubs in the tier above - some of whom even averaged fewer than 1,000 - are to receive at least £84,000 a month.

York have expressed their "concern" at the decision and fellow Step 2 sides Maidstone United and Kidderminster Harriers have issued similar statements.

Maidstone co-owner Trevor Casey said the move had left him "utterly confused and bitterly disappointed". 

He said: "The Government was specific in that the money they brokered for our football clubs was designed to 'replace lost gate revenue'. Clubs agreed to start the season, taking on trust the promise to cover these lost revenues. This has not happened.

"On the face of this it looks stupid but when it becomes clear that those sitting on the (National League) board making the decisions are heavily biased towards their own financial wellbeing, then it’s not just a stupid decision but possibly corrupt."

Kidderminster chief executive Neil Male said: "The distribution of these funds and the way in which that distribution has been calculated has left us as a board extremely concerned. I have this morning written to my counterpart, National League CEO Michael Tattersall, seeking urgent clarification on how those sums were reached."
