Standing Order (SO):

Your standing order can cover your annual subscription/match fees or annual subscriptions/match fees/training fees what ever suites you and is spread over 12 months on a continuing basis no need for renewal.  You can download a SO mandate here Standing Order Mandate Form or get one from behind the bar this should be completed and handed to your Captain ASAP.


Junior – £16.37 per month
Senior – £ 36.33 per month

All subs are due by the 31st October of each season, that means either full payment or a SO mandate must be received by that date. If neither is received then we reserve the right to increase the subs by £10 for every month that they are late and to not select the individual concerned for any team.  If you are unsure of your status then please ask your captain or Alan Wilson.  If there are any circumstances that you feel are exceptional then please contact Alan Wilson to discuss this (e.g. what is full time education?)

If you have difficulties in paying your subs then again please contact Alan Wilson to discuss how we may help this includes any players who are only available occasionally.

The club relies heavily on funds received in this way so please make every effort to ensure that you sort this out as soon as possible.
