Grimsby Town Football Club Limited (the “Club”) has filed its audited accounts for year ended 31st May 2021.
The Club has reported a profit for the period of £195,505 (vs £145,660 in 2020).
Primarily due to the Covid-19 pandemic which led to the 2020/21 season being played out behind closed doors, turnover in 2021 was 18% down vs 2020 (-£644,848). This was partially compensated by government and local authority grants received of £593,216.
Andrew Pettit, Vice Chair commented:
“Following the acquisition of a majority interest in Grimsby Town Football Club by 1878 Partners on 5th May 2021, we are pleased to be able to report a profit for the financial year ended 31st May 2021. Notwithstanding relegation to the National League and the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the previous board left the finances of the Club in a good state and we would like to record our thanks for this prior financial stewardship.”
Jason Stockwood, the Club’s Chair added:
“Andrew and I intend to continue to invest in the infrastructure and playing side of the Club and since the financial year end 1878 Partners has invested a further £1.125m into the business to support these initiatives.
Despite becoming a private limited company, as part of the B Corp commitment to transparency, the board has also decided to retain the same element of detail and transparency as was provided in its previous status as a PLC.”
