Membership Fees & How To Pay
The membership fee is intended to cover all league games, all cup games and all Tuesday / Thursday night training sessions with nothing further (eg match/training/petrol fees) to pay. (However, a match fee of £5 will apply to pre-season friendlies, intraclub games and any weekend training sessions to offset the cost of pitch hire).
Membership fees have remained at the same level as last season.
Unless exceptional circumstances apply then, to be considered for selection in our higher teams, you must have a commitment to high availability and have paid full membership fees. If your availability to play is limited by your employment, education or personal (but not social) commitments, please discuss your situation with the Treasurer.
In the unusual event that a non-member fills in for an odd game because of a general lack of availability within the Club, a “fill-in” match fee of £10 (student) or £20 (fully waged adult) will be payable. Payment of this fee gives no access to Club training sessions.
Payment of Membership Fees 2019-20
Membership fees are now due and must be paid / arranged before the end of September. Freshers and new players can defer payment / arrangement until Friday 11th October to ensure they are happy to join).
Membership fees can be paid either in full or by instalments. Payment of the full fee at the start of the season will attract a discount of 5%. Instalments must be paid either monthly from October to March (6 payments on the 16th of each month) or termly/quarterly (2 payments on 16th October and 16th January to align with student loans).
Any players who have failed to pay or arrange payment before the games in October (starting 5th October for existing members / 12th October for new players / freshers) will be charged a flat rate match fee equivalent to the fill-in fees (£20 fully waged, £10 students) for every game they play in October until payment is made or arranged. This fee can be deducted from their eventual payment. Any player who has not paid or arranged to pay before the Selection Meeting on 28th October will not be selected for any matches on or after 2nd November.
