Decreasing attendances have also impacted on the accounts.

Posh made £2,660,021 from the disposal of player registrations in the latest accounting period, which was up from £2,338,210 for the previous year.

The club remains reliant on the goodwill and financial backing of chairman Darragh MacAnthony who has now completed 10 years ownership of Posh.

At June 30, 2016 loans totalling just over £5 million were owed to DMA Holdings S.A, a company in which MacAnthony has a financial interest.

Posh have made a conscious decision to cut back on staffing costs, but the contribution and expertise of the media office, ticket office, commercial department and retail department were all praised in a report sent out to shareholders alongside the accounts.
