Assuming you'd prefer to pay in instalments, the second amount (£35 per player) pays for your child's new kit!
Unlike other clubs, we understand how strong a connection your child will have with their first football kit, so we'll NEVER ask for it back. It's yours to keep 🙂
6. Your third instalment - 1st August
The third instalment (£35 per player) pays for the rental of our home pitch.
It's a lot cheaper than other venues, and as an added bonus you become a matchday member which means you and your family can pop in for Sunday lunch after the game 😉
(Sorry, but the fee still applies for CURRENT members of the club)
7. Your fourth instalment - 1st September
The final instalment (£25* per player) pays for bibs, coach jackets, kit bags, cones, goalkeeper top, and a part payment towards FA qualifications for coaches.
*N.B. Apologies, we quoted £20 in the intial presentation. Unfortunately, after further spreadsheet crunching we need to adjust this figure to £25
8. Monthly payments - starting in September
Monthly payments (per player) cover the cost of the referees and the coaches for match-day.
The initial figure we quoted was over 12 months, but we've amended this so the matchday costs only run for 9 months i.e. broadly the length of the season.
U7s - £11 U8s - £7 U9s - £11 U10s - £10 U11s - £10
(The variation in amounts is caused by squad-size, different referee costs, whilst the U8s team is coached by a volunteer)
*N.B. In some cases the intial figure we quoted was too high over the course of the season, so we've adjusted it 🙂
Reviewing the cost
The first season is always more expensive. Rest assured we'll review the costs at the end of every season to ensure we only ask for what we need 🙂
Struggling to afford the upfront instalments?
Let us know 🙂
Several of the parents have suggested they'd actually prefer to pay upfront which gives us a bit of flexibility around cashflow.
You'll still pay the same amount over the course of the season, but it might mean you don't need to fork out so much early on!
