Posh Policies praised by The Trust

Trust Chairman Barry Bennett attended the PUFC AGM on Monday 15 April, to represent the Posh Supporters’ Trust who we believe to be the 2nd largest Shareholders of the football club, after Darragh’s 99% holding.   Barry congratulated Darragh for his business strategy of getting in young players from lower leagues, developing them and selling them on whilst at the same time being competitive on the pitch. This has been demonstrated with entertaining football, progression into the Championship and making a profit of £3.6m for the financial year May 2011 to May 2012.
Barry also congratulated Darragh and the board on the financial controls that are implemented to keep our club in a sustainable position whilst competing with big spending clubs that don’t.
In the financial year May 2011 to May 2012 there was a big reduction in the football clubs debts:
The clubs overdraft has been halved from £2m to £1m.  A £650,000 loan from Darragh personally has been paid in full, and loans from Darragh’s company have been reduced by approx £2m.
