Telford's Finances Are Improving

AFC Telford chairman Andy Pryce has said that the finances of the club are improving. The club now owns the leases to all of the New Bucks Head stadium.

"From four years ago when I got involved we worked very hard to get our liabilities down," said Pryce as reported by the Shropshire Star.

"I would like to say we're now at a very manageable place regarding finances, if things continue then hopefully we've got a bright future on that side.

"It's brilliant that for the first time since 2004, since the club started, we actually hold the lease for the whole site now. We've got no third parties to deal with, no disruptions over the other side, it's completely AFC Telford's ground, which is a huge, huge positive.

"Make no illusions it's going to be hard work and take a bit of money to get the facilities back up and running but with time and a lot of effort we'll get the West Stand back up and running. We've started work on revamping the gym, we hope it will open in the near future.

"The bar area will be open for the start of the season, all these things to bring revenue for the club.

"I can only see that as a positive for the football club."
