Chairman Hits Back

By: Mariners Net
Date: 30/06/2006

GRIMSBY Town chairman, John Fenty, has hit back at claims by former manager Russell Slade that he had one of the lowest budgets in League Two last season.

Slade had previously told the press that he thought that he had a bottom-four budget in League Two but still finished in the top four.

However, the Mariners' chairman thinks that it might be case of jesting by the former boss.

Mr Fenty said: "It is more likely that it was a top four budget, that is a credit to our fans coming to the games, and the way our administrative staff keep costs down and commercial income up.

"The facts are, Russell was very, very, well supported. Just think of the players we signed at Christmas, an extra 6.5 thousand pounds per week we added to our wage bill."

And the Town chief points to the Football League's average budgets for the three divisions.

"The Championship average was £4.5 million, League 1was £1.1 million and League 2 was £.9 million.

"Grimsby Town's budget was just short of £1.1 million for the season, a sum that was affordable otherwise it would have been less," he added.

"In any case, it's not what or how much you spend, it's what you spend it on.. It is important that we have control to that extent."
