Simon Corney has revealed new financial figures from the club. He confessed that the club has gone through a massive £430,000 on paying off players and managers during the time he has been at the club. With the addition of agent's fees the figure amounts to almost half a million pounds.

Corney told the official website, "These are costs people don't know about, and I was quite astounded when I found out how much we've paid out over the last few years. The amounts involved are quite mind-boggling. We're shooting ourselves in the foot really. Fans know I operate an open-book policy, and I wanted to share this information with them as I realise that supporters are always interested in gaining an insight into the workings of the club."

It was not mentioned whether the fees have had an impact on the failure to bring in a new forward before the signing deadline.
