Shrewsbury Town hoping for an improved Premier League windfall

An improved Premier League deal will help Shrewsbury Town to become a sustainable football club once again, according to chief executive Liam Dooley.

During Covid EFL clubs received payments of around £500,000 to help with running costs.

Many clubs, including Salop, continued to budget for that money coming in as part of an improved deal with the Premier League.

But after an initial payment during the pandemic, the top flight and the EFL have failed to come to an agreement, and clubs have not received any money.

And Dooley says Town are very eager to get a fair percentage of distribution.
