The club have previously announced that the level of debt over the last two years is unsustainable and that we would have to reduce costs over the next few years.
CEO Rob Stanley commented ‘Whilst discussing the contract extensions of Mark and Danny it was agreed that we would maintain the same level of budget as last year. This, obviously, requires us to look at all other costs associated with running the club in an effort to reduce the deficit. However, it is important that we also look at increasing revenue streams. One area that the club has performed poorly in is our Commercial presence within the City. Andrew Pinfield has helped the club out in the past on a part-time basis, and we hope he will continue to do so, however, we have decided that it is important that we have a full-time dedicated Commercial Manager. We are delighted to announce that we have secured the services of Jamie Sinclair to take this role. Jamie has extensive experience in this area and will officially start his role on 1st June, he is currently working on a new commercial brochure and we are looking forward to hearing from any potential sponsors or investors.’
Jamie Sinclair had the following to say on his new role with the club.
“My aim is to work with the management, staff and fans on building the ever growing positive reputation of the club. I’m very proud to have the opportunity to contribute having developed a dedicated program towards building the commercial department for the club within the local business community and safeguarding its future for many more generations to come.”
