Covering all age groups, we had 95.625 players who paid to sign on last year (although 106 players were signed on). At £80 per person for the 2014-2015 season, the club raised £7650 from signing on fees. This is a shortfall of £832 which was not received.
The clubs total expenditure was £23,402.33.
- league registrations,
- Winter training,
- Pitch fees,
- Referee costs,
- Training equipment,
- Coach & manager training
- & the costs of our tournament and presentation evenings.
Based on these figures, it comes out at costing £221 per player for the season. Due to the club raising just over £7900 in fundraising, sponsorship & in donations (not including tournament or presentations), this can adjust the actual cost per player to £146.25.
The club increased in size for the season 2015 -2016, rising to 16 teams and potentially 180 players signing on. If 9 teams cost £15,502 (106 players) then 16 teams would potentially cost £27,559 at a cost of £153 per player. A £90 signing on fee would mean the club subsidize every player £63 (meaning the club must raise £11,340 in fundraising to break even, through events like the summer tournament, presentation evening raffles etc). Hopefully this will show yourselves, and the parents of your team, how our players are getting a good deal for their money!

As a club, we try very hard to keep the costs for parents down because we strongly feel that playing football and belonging to a club should be available to all. For managers, it also reduces the need for a collection of weekly and match days subs, allowing them to focus on what is really important, the children and them playing football!
