FOOTBALL CONFERENCE: "WILL RESIST LEAGUE 3"

The Chairman of the Football Conference Brian Lee has today insisted he will resist the Football Association commission's 'B-league' plan, and doubts it will go ahead without major concessions.
The Chairman of the Football Conference Brian Lee has today insisted he will resist the Football Association commission's 'B-league' plan, and doubts it will go ahead without major concessions.

He spoke to BBC Radio 5 Live's The Non League Football Show and said; "They're taking the heart out of it. This is a quick fix and it's not going to happen. We will resist it, for the pyramid of football - the competitions that feed into the Conference.

"The Football Association has lost the plot. At the moment, we don't support it, that's for sure. I'm not sure that this is the answer but I don't know what the answer is.

"At least it's started the ball rolling. We haven't had many alternatives at the moment, including from the Conference."

Lee believes leading clubs working closely with lower-league teams and improved coaching were better solutions to raising standards in the English game.

He said: "I see a good relationship developing in different ways. For example, there's a good relationship with Hyde and Manchester City, and a good relationship between Aldershot and Chelsea.

"We've got a wonderful centre at St George's Park but we need to improve the quality of coaching."

Listen to the full interview with Football Conference chairman Brian Lee on The Non League Football Show on BBC Radio 5 Live at 5:00am on Sunday.
