Summary of the club's end of year accounts.

Over the years the club has published end of year/season accounts.

As we have played for most of our History in red, we seem to prefer that colour for our accounts rather than black. 

For recent years they can also be seen at Companies House. As well as being published in the programme and Express and Echo

The earlier accounts have been collated from a number of sources, not least the National Newspaper Archive, as well as orginal sources.

If any shareholder has historic accounts and would like to loan them to the us please use the contact page.

There may be errors and there are omissions so if you can help with these please contact us at the historygroup@ecfc.co.uk
