Northampton Town Football Club “pleased” as losses reduced

Northampton Town Football Club has witnessed an improved financial performance for the period ending June 30 2019.

The club reduced its annual losses by around £500,000 during the 2018/19 period despite challenging conditions following relegation, and Chairman Kelvin Thomas said he was pleased with the progress made, progress that has continued in to the current season.

“These figures represent the previous season, 2018/19, and do show a loss, but we were fully expecting this due to it being the season following relegation,” he said.

“We are actually pleased that we were able to reduce the overall loss from the previous year of 2017/18, especially considering the significant reduction in income after that relegation.

“Credit has to go to the staff at the club who work hard on a daily basis to hit targets and keep incomes up in tough circumstances. Significant progress has been made this season to improve the club finances and reduce the losses, not just in this current season but also for future years. We are yet to see the real impact that Covid-19 will have on this year’s figures, but as of what we know so far the financial results should still be very much improved on 2018/19.

“It’s also worth noting that we as owners control the debt so there is no outside debt, which enables us to continue to support the club financially and continue to operate as a going concern, which the auditors confirm within their report.

“These financials not only show our commitment to the club, but also our commitment to try and make the club more sustainable going forward. They confirm our view that we need to use all the assets available within the business to progress, including the development land and the East Stand.

“We are pleased that the accounts note the change of ownership of County Developments (Northampton) Limited in 2019 to the Football Club which if we are able to conclude a mutually beneficial deal with Northampton Borough Council could add very valuable funds directly into the Football Club.”

No further financial information was shared by the club.

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £33.60 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
