The Magpies will recieve an immediate cash payment of £54,000 as part of the deal, with Division 1 clubs getting £111,000 and Division 3 getting £42,000 for the highlights package.

Highlights from Nationwide League games as well at Worthington Cup and LDV Vans Trophy games will be shown on a regional basis from this weekend on ITV.

"Despite recent history the fact remains that ITV's unrivalled regional network is a natural partner for the Football League," said Football League commercial director Richard Masters.

"This new agreement will give supporters the access to their club's goals to which they have become accustomed, a level of access that no other terrestrial broadcaster can match."

"We must now begin to look to the future and having consulted with all our clubs I believe it right to enter into an agreement that will give more supporters the opportunity to see their club's goals." he added.
