Ross County being debt-free is ‘weight off shoulders’ of players
“It’s massive,” he said. “The job the chairman has done – from the board of directors to the coaching staff – there’s been an amazing turnaround at the club, and that’s just from when I came here.“They’re putting things in to improve it things as well… facilities, I think we’ve got an improved squad this season. Going forward, I think people will see the manager’s made good additions.“It’s a weight off your shoulders because you know you’re definitely getting paid every month.“That’s something I’ve had before in the past when I was at Leeds, when they were going into administration, and I had it at Rotherham as well when they were going into administration. “People take that for granted at times that you will get paid all the time, so that’s a weight off the shoulders.“Added to that all the other stuff they’re doing at the club, it’s nice to come into work and have all the facilities here.“We need to use that to our advantage to make the most of all these good things we’ve got.” Martin Woods says the announcement that Ross County are debt-free for the first time in their history is a “weight off the shoulders” of the players.Chairman Roy McGregor made the announcement this week, with the Dingwall club now on an even keel after revealing their accounts for the past financial year.“That is a bit of a milestone in the 22-year journey, the first time we’ve been debt-free,” he said. “We’ve come from the era when the old green stand was here, grass banks. We feel we’ve now completed what we set out to do.”Woods believes the announcement will also have an impact on Ross County’s players, talking through personal experience of playing for clubs going through financial turmoil.
