HampshireIan Posted February 24, 2021 Share Posted February 24, 2021 Morning everyone, I'm after some help from those a bit more knowledgeable than me in the game. So, i've been managing Ashford United who were in the Isthmian Southern League and I managed to win that league in my first season and been promoted. My finances are dreadful and one of my goals by the board for next season, is to get the bad finances back to something decent. I suspect if I don't do this, i'll probably get sacked, so need to get a few things straight before I start my next season. So, the reason for my post is contracts and playing costs. Firstly, I do have a few players on £200+ per week contracts, which at £400 per week is going to be £2800+ per month. My wage budget is only £3200 so I will have to get rid of them. I will need to get all of my players on a 'pay-as-you-play' contract - is that possible? Is that a part time contract? If so, how do I offer this as whenever I approach a player to sign, they appear to want a weekly wage and if I drop that to £0.00 then the agent just drops me like a stone. How do I get them on part time? Second one is about arranging friendlies. I can see that I can select a team and it shows me costs and income. Do those costs include all wages etc or are the costs just for ground upkeep, lighting, staff etc? My thinking is that I can arrange friendlies and if say the costs are £2000 and the income is £600, then that is all profit and I can do two or three of those a month (or more) to bump up my bank balance? Thanks in advance, a bit of a big first post, but I don't want to start the second season without getting a few things set up correctly.
