CEO Paul Faulkner has talked about our 'challenging season' but he remains confident we are moving in the right direction. I'm not going to go back over the recent financials, suffice to say we all know the state we were in with wages and our position now isn't anywhere near as bad as the headlines of record losses suggest when you knuckle down and look at the specifics.....So it's no real surprise to see Faulkner say he's confident in the direction the club is heading.
