Stockport County will announce a trading profit of £35,000 for the last financial year.  

This is against a loss of £107,000 in the previous year, making a total change of £142,000 year-on-year.

The 2016/17 figure has been boosted by increased tickets sales, commercial revenue and success on the pitch, including healthy cup runs. 

There have also been increases in lottery revenue and merchandise sales through the club shop, as well as the conclusion of significant historic payments.

In addition, there has been a significant year-on-year improvement in the balance sheet of £410,000. 

Over the last two years, the balance sheet has been improved by £926,000.

Stockport County Chairman Richard Park said: “The fans have played a huge part in helping to make this improvement and going forward we have sold just under 1,700 season tickets for this current campaign, well up on the 1,458 we sold last year.

“Our costs are under robust control and our playing budget has been significantly increased once again. 

“Despite the improvements, we are not going to rest on our laurels – the target remains to achieve promotion alongside a profitable, self-sustaining business which helps to generate additional funds for the playing budget, but the significant uplift over the last two-and-a-half years is a cause for celebration.”

Stockport County will register the accounts at Companies House next week.
