Poole Pirates boss Matt Ford worried about financial future of team
Poole Pirates boss Matt Ford is concerned about his side's financial future - as his team prepare for the new season.
While Ford is happy with the roster he has put together for the 2013 Elite League season, he is concerned about the impact of losing major sponsors after a difficult 2012.
"We go into the 2013 season having suffered a financial loss in 2012, and lost two of our larger sponsors and so far we have not been able to recover that loss of income.
"That in itself will hit the club hard as we rely heavily on sponsorship and advertising to keep the club on an even keel.
