Cumbrians fees announced

18 August 2010 12:00
The Football League's latest figures show that Carlisle spent just £12,000 on agents' fees in the 2009/10 season. The figure is less than half the £30,135 they spent in the 2008/09 campaign as 21 of 24 clubs in League One paid a service for a licensed agent. 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."
