Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace is urging the National League to seize the moment and press their case for three-up, three-down with the Football League.
Wallace, who was at the vanguard of the push for two promotion spots when he was vice-chairman of the Football Conference, offers to campaign on Non-League’s behalf in an exclusive interview with The Non-League Paper.
The Boro chief, who admits to a vested interest with his club bottom of League Two and facing possible relegation from the EFL on points per game, wants the National League to offer to promote just one club as champions to replace defunct Bury Town.
According to Wallace, the National League should look long term, arguing that the money saved on parachute payments would then fund the third promotion spot and finally end their 20 year quest to clear the bottleneck at the top of the Non-League game.
