Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club members will be told that the club recorded a pre-tax profit of £189,370 in the last financial year at February’s Annual General Meeting.

This compares to a pre-tax deficit of £148,761 in the previous year with the difference attributed to the absence of a Test match at Trent Bridge in 2009.
The successful hosting of England’s npower Test against Pakistan and the NatWest Series One Day International against Bangladesh and prize money from Nottinghamshire’s triumph in the LV= County Championship ensured a return to profitable trading in 2010.

“These financial results are very pleasing given the challenges that we faced last year,” said Nottinghamshire Chairman Peter Wright.

“The profit shown in our accounts re-affirms how important hosting Test cricket is to our long-term prosperity and it is very important that our members and cricket spectators continue to support international cricket at Trent Bridge.

"As usual, we will explain our position fully to members at the AGM in February."

Trent Bridge will host England’s NatWest Series One Day International against Sri Lanka and an npower Test against India in July. The Annual General Meeting takes place on Monday 28 February at County Hall and is open to all club members.
