Your guess is as good as mine. 

Looking at your last annual accounts you had nearly a million quid in the bank at the end of last season. Seems incredible that you have ended up bottom of the league despite having that money lying around.

Where might they have got half a million quid from I wonder....

Even then though 450k in the bank is a decent sum for a champ side.

Companies House filing (p3 of the filing dated 07.12.2021) suggests £700k or so https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/SC005854/filing-history?page=1 

Rawlins investment, bounce back loan, less money paid in rent to SA and LM = £400k inflow of cash. What we don’t know from the accounts is the effect covid had on turnover

Oh right. Just read “Queens” and presumed it was QP. Obvious really as 600 at QP would be an uplift in attendance.

We have quality not quantity.

Aye, no doubt a 300k operating loss, various pay offs, and a parasite or two roaming about the building will have ensured that any cash in the FFC bank account will have found a new home.

When setting out next seasons budget working out what the income from crowds, sponsors, adverts, shop is going to be is a thankless task.  Peoples and companies finances are screwed many will have no choice but to cut back on supporting the club.

Thankless task coming to a figure.

Has anyone got any updates/Information on our main shirt sponsor, maybe rubbish but hearing today that it’s “ not been good for the club”

Does this mean that the deal we had wasn’t good after all, or we can’t get a good deal for next season?

On the commercial front, I would love if it was possible to buy a shirt without a sponsor on it - they do this in Scandinavia and even though more expensive, people have been willing to pay

All I was told was this seasons deal wasn’t good. Not sure if they are the contracted sponsor for new season.

There was always something dodgy about Clarke EPOS...a company with virtually nothing on their web pages except sport sponsorship.  I would be surprised if they were sponsoring us again next season. Heard a wee rumour from a mate of mine that they didn't pay full whack and screwed the club, but don't know how accurate this is.

Heard more or less the same.
