Gloucester announce record profit and turnover for 2013-14

Gloucester's Kingsholm is one of 13 host venues for the Rugby World Cup in 2015

Gloucester have announced record account results for the 2013-14 season.

The club revealed a turnover of £12m, up 3.7% on the previous year, while returning a pre-tax profit of £512k, up nearly 68% on the previous year.

The Premiership outfit finished ninth in the table last term, and parted company with boss Nigel Davies before bringing in a new coaching department - headed by David Humphreys.

"It has been a challenging 12 months," said chief executive Stephen Vaughan.

"However, under David Humphreys' guidance, I believe we are putting in the right foundations to deliver success in the long term.

"These results have been achieved despite what was a tough season on the field of play.

"For the club to increase turnover and profit reflects the hard work of everyone at the club, and is also thanks to the continued magnificent support of our sponsors and supporters who have been first class in every respect."
