Senior match fees

In addition to the annual subscription, there is also a match fee of £10 (senior players), or £5 (students).  These fees are designed to cover the costs of midweek training sessions, general club costs and supplies, match balls and teas at home or travelling when away from home.

The payment of membership subscriptions should be made by BACS payment, while the match fees are usually paid in cash on the day to the team captain.

New Senior match shirts

We have new match shirts with our new senior club sponsor Drain Doctor. This needs to be bought from the club at a cost of £20.

Junior training fees

Our juniors pay £2.50 per child per week on a ‘pay and play’ basis. Those who wish to pay for a whole term of training (14 weeks for the price of 12) can pay £30 at the first training session of the term.

Other memberships

  • Associate Membership or Midweek membership (to cover those who would like to be a non-voting member of the club, without playing in Saturday fixtures) is £35 per year.
