The future looks bright for Championship table toppers Burnley after the club released their latest financial accounts posting a club record profit of £30.14 million according to the Burnley Express.
The Clarets may have suffered relegation back to the Championship in May but the strict financial management of the club’s budgets has resulted in the club being able to run self sufficiently.
Burnley Manager Sean Dyche has built the club on players who are committed to the cause and have a desire to play for his side rather than spending on big name players and although survival in the Premier League could not be achieved last season The Clarets are looking good for a swift return to the top flight this campaign.
The club’s profits have been used to pay off all outstanding debts while a portion of the funds will be heavily invested in the club’s infrastructure such as the development of the training ground, club shop and club offices to help bring Burnley in line with other successful rival clubs.
The latest financial figures are made all the more impressive by the fact that they do not include the record tribunal fee to be received from Liverpool for the transfer of star striker Danny Ings. Only Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur posted larger profits that Burnley in the Premier League last season.
Burnley currently lead the Championship table by four points with just eight matches left to play although fellow promotion chasers Middlesbrough and Hull City boast a game in hand over The Clarets.
