See how the connections between grassroots football in England and the top flight are plenty and strong

Saturday 12 October, 2019 marks the 10th edition of Non-League Day

Connections between the Premier League and non-league football are plenty.

The Premier League funds the Football Stadia Improvement Fund, which since 2000 has helped thousands of non-league clubs get the finances to improve their grounds for fans and to help them to stay viable.

Sky Sports pundit and former Liverpool FC captain Jamie Carragher visited his local non-league club, Marine FC, to see how Premier League funding has helped them enjoy a brighter future.
