Clubs now have the details of the grant process for Level 3 and below. It's a relatively easy Application to complete, although I have raised one question with the RFU. It's worth noting that it is not the RFU that decides who gets what, this is a Government scheme using Deloitte's and Sport England to review Applications.

I think it should be good news for most but I'd like to hear thoughts from others involved completing this Application, probably best through a private message.

Halliford I applaud your positivity. All the Championship clubs made incredibly detailed applications. All were turned down for grants. Loans were offered to some, none of whom could accept the terms attached to the loans. As far as the Championship is concerned the 'survival fund' was a bogus headline grab with no actual substance.

Possibly correct, or is it possible they didn't meet the criteria for grants which as I understand is to prevent a club who is in imminent danger of going under from going under?

To be fair I would not think any of the clubs in the Championship should be in imminent danger of going under, although I understand Ampthill are appealing their decision.

As a Club we had already agreed that we would not sign up to a loan scheme. We are prepared to provide the detail needed for the grant scheme that is being proposed for Clubs at Level 3 and down. How much of what is available will get taken up will be something to look at. We have stayed solvent with little income for nearly a year. This grant scheme helps with fixed costs and so is beneficial to everyone.

Grants good, loans bad seems a good policy to adopt to me.

Totally agree, most clubs struggle to break even each year so where would money come from to pay-back any loans?
