Former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp’s new club in debt
Former Spurs, QPR, Portsmouth, Bournemouth and Southampton manager Harry Redknapp recently took on a director’s role on the board at non-league Wimborne Town FC.
Today the Bournemouth Daily Echo has news:
New chairperson Paula Henley has issued a cry for help to save Wimborne Town after due diligence uncovered debts of approximately £110,000.
Henley revealed monthly losses of between £6,000 and £8,000 with manager Simon Browne’s £1,000-per-week playing budget set to be completely axed within a fortnight. The club has also made redundant a full-time member of staff.
The brutal truth was laid bare at Monday night’s emergency fans’ forum at Cuthbury with Henley launching a plea for volunteers to muck in to reduce monthly overheads of £16,000.
Any loose change in those deep pockets, Harry?
