Hi, does anyone know the salary of football players in English League 2 Clubs such as Milton keynes, Peterborough, Notts county etc. Any estimations?
I think a lot of them probably earn just under a £1,000 a week. It will vary because some clubs are better off than others. You get a team like Peterborough or MK Dons who will probably be able to pay some of their players over £1,000 a week compared to a club like Mansfield or Rochdale will probably only able to afford to offer like £500 a week or less.
wow, thanks guys. What about non-league teams? Do they get any salaries?
Yeah like the conference will get salaries, again really depends how well off the club is. Again somewhere like Aldershot, Stevenage and Cambridge could probably pay their players pretty much football league salaries, but somewhere like Droyslden or Northwich wouldn't probably pay much more than around £200 or £300 a week.
If you have it check the latest 'Football Manager' game, or the demo - they are pretty accurate and are the result of quite a lot of research.
They make more than the average investment banker in front office.
My friend who played for Hitchin Town in the British Gas League also known as Southern Premier League, was on around £40 a week. And another guy I know who plays for my local village team get's around £20 a week.
League 2 I'd say 1,000 and under. League 1 a tad more. Championship varies upto 15 or 20 grand. And especially now new contracts are being given out can you imagine what QPR's players will be earning? It's quite a sad state now, lower league teams with tighter budgets like Argyle are going to be priced out.
Someone can help me i want to play in some team in or around london some phone or people to contact with them and talk
