NEWPORT County's season is on hold indefinitely after the EFL, Premier League, FA and Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship has collectively agreed to postpone football competitions until it is safe to resume.

The Exiles haven't played since losing at Carlisle on March 10 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

A return to action is a long way off but clubs in the Football League and National League are set to receive financial help from the Premier League.

"While there is no single solution, measures are to be put in place to immediately deal with the impact of falling cash flow," read a Premier League statement.

"Critically, the League unanimously voted to advance funds of £125million to the EFL and National League as it is aware of the severe difficulties clubs throughout the football pyramid are suffering at this time."

That is a boost given that there are weeks and months of uncertainty ahead.

"Football is committed in supporting the government’s efforts in tackling the COVID-19 outbreak and the staging of football matches in this country. It is clearly something that simply cannot happen at this time," read an EFL statement.

"The thoughts of everyone associated with the EFL and its member Clubs are with anyone currently affected by the coronavirus.

"The situation will be kept under constant review with matches only returning at an appropriate point and based on the latest guidance provided by the relevant government departments and health authorities.

"The EFL also notes and appreciates the decision taken today by the Premier League in respect of the short-term financial relief it is to provide EFL Clubs through the advancement of solidarity payments, parachute payments and academy grants.

"These actions will have a positive impact on individual Clubs across our three divisions at a difficult and uncertain time."

Premier League clubs will ask their players to take a 30 per cent pay cut to assist with the payment of non-playing staff during the coronavirus pandemic.

Stars and clubs have come under fire after some furloughed non-playing staff without looking at players' wages during the crisis.

Health secretary Matt Hancock said footballers should "take a pay cut and play their part." Premier League shareholders confirmed talks will be held with a view to wage cuts.

"In the face of substantial and continuing losses for the 2019-20 season since the suspension of matches began, and to protect employment throughout the professional game, Premier League clubs unanimously agreed to consult their players regarding a combination of conditional reductions and deferrals amounting to 30 per cent of total annual remuneration," a statement from the Premier League read.

"This guidance will be kept under constant review as circumstances change. The league will be in regular contact with the PFA and the union will join a meeting which will be held between the league, players and club representatives."

A further £20million will be committed to the NHS and the vulnerable.

The statement added: "This includes a direct financial contribution to the NHS and funds to enable clubs to refocus their efforts and develop significant outreach programmes to help communities, including those most in need."
