Nottinghamshire Cricket Club Hail Record Surplus
January 16, 2012
Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club have announced a record surplus of over half a million pounds for the year to the end of September 2011.
The impressive figure of £542, illness 210 ($830, adiposity 725) is almost treble that of last year’s pre-tax surplus of £189, viagra discount 370 ($290,135), an amount that was the still the best from any of the 18 counties.
A statement from club chairman Peter Wright attributed the club’s excellent financial position to several factors. He said, “Strong ticket sales for international matches, coupled with a significant increase in Friends Life t20 attendances and a rise in membership numbers contributed to the financial results.
“Last year presented a number of challenges, not least a round of bidding for major matches, and delivering a record surplus against that backdrop reflects tremendously well on the people and the systems that we have in place at Trent Bridge.”
One of the main reasons for Nottinghamshire’s success iis that they managed to secure Ashes Tests in 2013 and 2015; a Test against India in 2014; and numerous one-day international matches, putting them second only to Lord’s in terms of England Test match grounds.
The main reason for the success of their bid was almost certainly the redevelopment work that has been carried out at the ground in recent years, latterly under the leadership of departing chief executive Derek Brewer, which has created an outstanding arena for international cricket. The resulting excellent financial position that the club now find themselves in has already seen them strengthen their playing staff considerably over the winter period, with James Taylor and Harry Gurney recruited from Leicestershire, and Michael Lumb from Hampshire.
