No fees for Stanley

18 August 2010 01:00
The Football League's latest figures show that Accrington spent nothing on agents' fees for the second consecutive season. The League Two club were one of 14 teams who did not fork out on agents between July 1 2009 and June 30 2010, while the spending of other League Two clubs totalled £366,781. The publication of Football League clubs' spending on agents' fees has revealed that money committed has increased in the last 12 months from £8.8million to £12.7million. Football League chairman Greg Clarke voiced his concern, saying: "Given the current economic climate, it is worrying to see such a significant amount leaking from the game. "This year`s figures demonstrate a considerable increase on those of last season and it is essential that clubs work to reduce this liability over the coming campaign."
