Leicestershire CEO Mike Siddall Hopes New Season Changes Bring Financial Gain

County Championship side Leicestershire County Cricket Club CEO Mike Siddall "hopes changes for the new season will trigger a financial boost," according to the BBC. He "welcomed the decision to start County Championship fixtures on a Sunday and to play the majority of Twenty20 matches on Friday nights." In the last financial year, "the club recorded a loss" of more than £250,000 ($404,600), having announced a profit of nearly £300,000 12 months earlier. Sidall: "We hope for an increase in income and membership as well" (BBC, 11/26).
