The accounts were approved by the directors on 12th March and will be filed at Companies House in the next few days.
A statement on the club’s official website read: “The financial statements report a loss of £3.4m compared with £2.6m for the previous year. Of this loss, £1.3m represents expenditure on the new stadium that has been impaired in the accounts in line with accounting standards, a like-for-like comparison with the previous year excluding this item is a loss of £2.1m compared with £2.6m for the previous year.
The Board remains committed to the recovery of these costs.

Income has increased by £1.8m (76.3%) since the year ended 30 June 2014, the first year in which the Chairman took control of the Club.
