Town announce profit of £150,573 for the year ending 31st May 2019.
Turnover in 2018/19 increased by 11.8% compared to the previous year, primarily due to an increase in central distributions received from the Football Association and the Football League, player trading and reaching the Third Round of the Emirates FA Cup for the first time in five years. The ability to be able to make a consistent investment into the Youth Academy will assist the club in reaching its long term goals, enabling it to maintain a clear progression pathway. This is evident with a number of graduates earning professional contracts and fighting for first team opportunities in the past year.
It was noted in the previous year’s report that the club were asked to reconsider other potential sites due to there being no political backing for relocation to Peaks Parkway. Due to this further delay, the club has commenced a programme of works to improve the facilities at the stadium. This includes disabled access and facilities, playing facilities, providing heating to the Main Stand, replacement floodlights and refurbishment of the toilet blocks.
