Shrimps fees revealed

18 August 2010 12:00
The Football League's latest figures show that Morecambe spent £16,960 on agents fees during the 2009/10 season. The figure was a significant increase on the £5,000 outlay the Shrimps allowed themselves in the previous campaign. Spending on agents fees by Football League clubs rose to £12.7million over the past 12 months, compared to the 2008/09 figure of £8.8million. "Given the current economic climate, it is worrying to see such a significant amount leaking from the game," said Football League chairman Greg Clarke in response to the report. "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."
