Expert look at Clarets accounts

CLARETS season ticket holder and financial consultant Steve Kelly has had chance to digest the Burnley Football Club accounts and a £3.6m operating loss, and here he gives his verdict on the state of play and way forward for the club.

Kelly, who also writes occasionally for Clarets fanzine When The Ball Moves, underlines how the board of directors have backed their managers, and shows why the club have gone down the route they have, in terms of player recruitment, since the summer, with the imminent onset of the Financial Fair Play ruling.
