National League side Woking attempting to ensure players and staff are paid until end of the season despite coronavirus crisis

talksport.com, 27 March 2020, 08:47
Matt Jarvis has confirmed to talkSPORT that Woking boss Alan Dowson is doing his utmost to ensure club staff are paid until the end of the season.

The coronavirus pandemic has affected a number of English football clubs, with Birmingham and Leeds two of the more high-profile teams whose players have taken pay cuts in these unprecedented times, following the knock-on effects due to the lack of football.

All Premier League and Football League matches are currently postponed until April 30 at the earliest, while non-league football at Steps 3 to 6 to has been ended completely and the entire season expunged from the records.

The inevitable financial strain caused by COVID-19 has also raised questions over the future of many lower league clubs, who rely heavily on matchday income in order to survive.

Leyton Orient have launched a JustGiving page as part of their Ultimate QuaranTeam FIFA tournament in a bid to raise money for financially stricken EFL clubs.

Nonetheless, the following weeks are sure to be an uncertain time for teams in both league and non-league football.

Clubs are expected to continue reducing salaries and possibly laying off staff if money grows even tighter, but former Wolves and West Ham winger Jarvis, who joined Woking last month, says the National League side are adamant club personnel won't have to take pay cuts.

Speaking exclusively to talkSPORT, Jarvis said: "I've been in good contact with the manager [Alan Dowson] and he really wants to look after his staff, as they've been around him for a long time.

Give COVID-19 the red card

The quicker we work together to stop coronavirus spreading, the sooner we can get back into the pubs, the gyms and stadiums and arenas to see live sport again…

STAY AT HOME. Only leave for the following purposes:

to shop for basic essentials - only when you really need to

to do one form of exercise a day - such as a run, walk or cycle, alone or with other people you live with

for any medical need - for example, to visit a pharmacy or deliver essential supplies to a vulnerable person

to travel to and from work - but only where this is absolutely necessary

For more info and tips, visit the NHS website.

The government has also issued further detail on what we can do during lockdown.

Everyone should do what they can to stop coronavirus spreading.

"He's really passionate about making sure they keep getting paid, as well as the players who, again, have been with him for a long time and worked so hard for him.

"He wants them all to be paid.

"They get paid until next month only in the National League, so he's trying his best [to ensure] these players and staff get paid until May 3, and then we'll see what happens with the virus. He's really adamant that's the way it should be with his loyal players and staff.

"It's really difficult for me, as I've only just got back into it so I'm desperate for the league to carry on and to play some more games.

"It's very difficult, as with it being voided will it start back in normal pre-season and with the players and clubs not paying anything until the start of the pre-season again? Would that help clubs? It probably would.

"There were only, I think, eight games left so it's a long time to work so hard on things.

"If you're in the play-offs or at the top of the league or the bottom of the league, you are where you are because you've worked so hard that season. It's hard to just have it voided."
