A successful team on the pitch, combined with the schools and community ticket initiative, could easily see us averaging 6,000. Could easily bring an extra £400,000 through the gate.
A bit of investment in the corporate side of the business - refurbishing the lounges and taking catering back in house, would see a healthy return from business, weddings, proms, etc.
Once we are in the Football League, we can pay players more (as we have FL funding) and they would be willing to sign longer contracts, so we can develop players and sell them on for a profit.
The commercial side of the business will continue to grow. We can also continue to stage concerts.
I see absolutely no reason why the club should end up £7m in debt or making massive losses, if it is run properly???
I believe Elwood lost around £1.6m during his time at County. Around £100,000 a season, which is nothing in football terms. That is an example of what can be done if you run the business properly.
However, with one major caveat, we do not want to be in the same situation as we were when Elwood left and end up crashing and burning after the owner departs.
