2013/14 Accounts -Interesting bits

just downloaded the accounts for 2013/14 and they make interesting reading.
Aside from the news that losses and debts have increased :'( some really interesting bits (to me as an accountant anyway)

Gate receipts (incl season tickets) = £1.225 M down from £1.551 previous year. This is despite an increase in average attendance of 18% from 5034 to 5959 ?????????????

This means that the average take per person per match is less than £10

Also really surprised to see that we have 78 people employed for playing, training and coaching !!!
35 people employed for admin and ground maintenance
Both figures seem a hell of a lot to me
