Posted this on another thread, but the single match income for Accrington vs Barnsley:


The Accrington chairman goes on to say...

Wow. Transparency with the fans - what a breath of fresh air! Kudos to Andy Holt and the Stanley.

There's also a lad helping to run a club somewhere in the NE who's also been very open and honest with the club finances here

Bottom line: engage with the fanbase as partners or investors to the club (they may not own equity but they invest serious money, time and emotion) rather than throwing out a few meaningless management sound-bites.

It all depends what your motives for owning a football club are. Holt is presumably a football fan who wants a club in the community that doesn't lose money, and he is presumably fairly happy with lower football league status. So being open and honest with fans works for him.

For many of the rest of the club owners, their motives are presumably to make some money off the back of whichever club it is, and being open about that would alienate them from the fanbase, if they are seen as on the one hand appealing to fans to back various money raising initiatives and on the other to be taking that same money back out again. I think one of the reasons Donald stopped quite so much sponsorship of OUFC was he said he may as well just give the money straight to Eales.

Wasn’t pre season friendly each year part of the 3 year agreement signed with Leeds over the Roofe signing hence why we played them for the last 2 pre seasons.
That would explain it all. Hopefully nothing to see here 😊

That's the answer then. Online petition to save our club haha
But if he got involved with that would that mean no involvement with us?
