FOREST GREEN expect to make an operating profit in their next set of accounts.

The most recently published annual reports at Companies House report a loss of more than £2.1 million for the year ending April 2017, but a club spokesman said: “Forest Green Rovers made good progress last year, both on and off the pitch.

"There was a significant reduction in operating losses and of course, our historic promotion to the Football League. With significant increases in attendance and all over forms of commercial revenue in our first season in the EFL, we are on course for an operating profit in our next set of accounts – as anticipated.”
