The complications have arisen as a result of eight clubs blocking the acceptance of a pounds 13m Bass Premier League sponsorship deal and seven others bringing the London meeting at which it was being discussed to a premature end by walking out. Parry subsequently admitted: 'We have a major risk. We have hit a brick wall with something of a thud. The whole concept of one club, one vote is proving unworkable.'
Kelly, who is with the England team in Santander, where they play Spain tomorrow, said: 'We are concerned about the internal wrangling, which is very damaging.'
The Crystal Palace chairman, Ron Noades, led the walkout over what was interpreted as a block vote to obstruct the sponsorship deal which some clubs felt might have conflicted with their own arrangements.
Parry said: 'The fear of those who walked out was that the voting system has become a sham, because eight clubs can get together and block decisions.'Reuse content
