The fees we collect go towards the running and upkeep of the league. Our league has been running since 1972 and is setup to run at cost and not make a profit. All of our committee members are volunteers that give up their time for free.
2021/22 Fees #
We have lowered the majority of our fees for the 2021/22 season, and the Tote prize draw is no longer running.
1. Registration Fee #
This is a non-refundable booking fee that needs to be paid in order to reserve a team's place in the league for the season.
£30 per team
2. League Fees #
£300 for the entire season for all age groups.
We have three options for each team to choose from when paying their league fees:
Weekly: £10 per week over 30 weeks to cover the entire season
This option is for teams that prefer to spread their league fees over the course of the season in weekly instalments. 30 weekly payments of £10 adds up to £300.
Monthly: £37.50 per month over 8 months to cover the entire season
This option is for teams that prefer to spread their league fees over the course of the season in monthly instalments. 8 monthly payments of £37.50 adds up to £300.
Up-Front: £300 up-front payment to cover the entire season
This option is for teams that prefer to pay their league fees up front and then forget about them. This needs to be paid in full by 31st August 2021.
3. Referee Fees #
The referee fees are payable per-team, per-match:
- U7s-U10s: £10
- U11s-U12s: £12
- U13s-U14s: £15
League Fee Notes
If paying the fees in weekly or monthly instalments, the fees are due even when the games aren't on (i.e. due to Christmas breaks, Easter breaks, or bad weather). The weekly and monthly fees are spread over the course of the season in fixed amounts for the convenience and to help with cashflow for the teams, but the total amount still needs to be paid. The referee fees are usually paid in cash as we use this to pay the referees with. The referee fees also include a complimentary Player of the Match medal for each team.
We are currently working towards our season starting on Sunday 12th September 2021. The season runs from September to May, and we have planned breaks over Christmas and at Easter. We don't normally have mid-week games during lighter nights, but if do, they would probably take place on a Thursday.
