In September 2019, Clapton CFC spent £12,742.91, with a large portion of this (£7,695.03) covering the production of another 500 replica away shirts.
We are planning to make 250 of these available from our online shop in a “flash sale” in the next few weeks.
The other major expense this month was kit for our women’s first team.
The remaining expenditure, totalling £3473.78, reflects the general monthly costs of running a football club.
In addition to this spending, the club also donated £274.13 to Roter Stern Leipzig, which represented half of the €615 fine they received for the use of pyro at our friendly game against them on 10 August in Germany.
Our income in September was £7,738.23. The largest proportion of this was £2,709.61 from membership renewals and new members (after fees) but we have had huge success this month with our “Message to a Ton” player sponsorship campaign, which raised £898.86 this month (after fees).
With the men’s first team playing only once at home in September, in a low-key friendly against Eastfield, almost all of the match day donations of £1,479.34 this month came from our three women’s first team home games.
