Colne shaken by heavy losses

THE wet summer, one of the worst for years, was blamed for a heavy financial loss sustained by the Lancashire League club Colne.

======STOP SUMMARY=====

Having finished bottom of the table, Colne disclosed a loss of 10,565 for the year to Sept 30, according to a report in the Burnley Express . Plummeting receipts and increasing costs meant the bar lost an incredible 9,225, and the cricket deficit was 1,340.

It could have been worse because expenditure on groundsmen and the club professional fell by more than 3,000, due in part to the South African professional Blake Snijman having to return home in mid-season. It was Colne's second major loss in a row. In 2007 the club lost 4,734.
