Maidstone United co-owner Oliver Ash says 3G in Football League is inevitable

Maidstone co-owner Oliver Ash is leading fresh calls for the Football League to accept 3G pitches.

Mr Ash doesn’t believe it will come to that and has called on the FA, the National League and the Football League to hold a conference on 3G pitches.
