Burton Albion have announced significantly high turnover figures in their second season as a Football League club.

The Brewers' income in the year ending May 31 topped £2.5 million for the first time in the club's 61-year history. As a result, Burton made a profit before depreciation of £84,000 - the fourth year running the club have stayed in the black.

The figures are significantly higher than the 2009/10 campaign when the trading profit was £54,000 on a turnover of almost £1.9million.

The surplus was made despite a leap in overheads, including a wage bill of more than £2million. But the trading account reflects the continued growth and stability of the Staffordshire club.

League gate receipts fell by 11% but a successful run to the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time in the club's history resulted in an overall increase of £11,000 to £701,000.

A 52% increase to £1.8million in other forms of income - predominantly sponsorship and commercial activities - was the main reason for the record turnover. The club's income included a £146,000 payment from the Premier League Solidarity Scheme and payments from the Football League in support of the Centre of Excellence and community schemes.
