RUFC - Agents Fees Lowest since 2004

A Football League report on their Official Site says that Agents fees are the lowest since the publication of agents fees began in 2004.

It seems that there has been a fall of 14% between July 2007 and June 2008. The highest recorded Agents Fees Percent of Transfer Spending was in 2004/05 at 53%.

Lord Mawhinney, Chairman of the Football League said, 'In the last twelve months we have seen a resurgent transfer market with clubs spending greater sums on players and it is encouraging that this has not been coupled with a similar increase in agents' payments. Football League clubs continue to make genuine strides towards putting their economic affairs in order - though more remains to be done.'

A summary of the report for League Two is:

In League Two there were 1,188 player transactions - 38 involved the use of an agent

During this period clubs committed to spend 227,686 on agents fees

10 clubs committed to paying for the service of a licensed agent

14 clubs did not - they were - Accrington Stanley, Barnet, Bury, Chester, Chesterfield, Dagenham & Redbridge, Grimsby, Hereford, Lincoln, Mansfield, Notts County, Peterborough, Rochdale and Stockport


In all, last season, the following are figures committed to paying players' agents

Championship clubs accounted for 9.3m
League One clubs accounted for 1.53m
League Two clubs accounted for 0.23m
