Bristol City have announced that there will be job cuts at Ashton Gate as the club reviews its finances.

The club are having to take cost cutting measures after a pretty unsuccessful season last time around and they will be looking for workers to come forward for voluntary redundancies.

Even then, it does look as though there will be further job losses after the redundancies have been made.

A club statement read: ‘Employees of the company have been informed that a consultation on the future staffing needs will now be taking place and that this will involve some posts across the business becoming redundant.

‘It is the wish of everyone at Ashton Gate Ltd to make this process as straightforward as possible. As such the company is inviting applications for any voluntary redundancies in the first instance. It is anticipated that following this stage, further posts will be under review.

‘The restructuring is part of the group’s ongoing commitment to the future of Bristol City Football Club, shareholders and fans. As part of this responsibility, the group will also work towards aligning the finances to the incoming Football League’s Financial Fair Play framework.’
