CHAIRMAN SAYS 5USPORT PARTNERSHIP WILL ALLOW CLUB TO INVEST SENSIBLY

Kelvin Thomas says investments will be made wisely

28 June 2017

Chairman Kelvin Thomas has said that the 5USport partnership has given the club an increased playing budget, but the club will invest the money wisely and sensibly.

The Northampton Town Chairman was speaking after Monday's announcement that 5USport has agreed to purchase a major stake in Northampton Town Ventures Limited, who own the majority shareholding in Northampton Town Football Club.

“Money is available for the playing budget but we are not going to go too big on that because it’s all about sensible investment," he said.

“The East Stand is still a major priority of ours and we will continue working on that. Nothing really changes but this maybe does open up some new possibilities in terms of the overall plan.

“Football is an emerging market in China and we will be working with 5USport as to how we can develop Northampton Town in China, it’s going to be a very interesting project over the coming months.”
