In October 2019, Clapton CFC spent £7,717.31, with a large portion of this (£2,280.00) spending on accounting fees for the preparation of annual accounts for the Financial Conduct Authority, which because we are a community benefit society is our regulator.
Most of the other major expense this month relate directly to match days, including programmes, security, paying officials and physio costs, or to general monthly costs of running a football club.
In addition to this spending, the club also donated £150 to The Man Den and topped up a bucket collection for Akwaaba Hackney, which raised £492.50 at our game against Stonewall FC, to £600.00.
Our income in October was £18,555.96. The largest proportion of this was £11,531.49 from merchandise sales, including a flash sale of our replica shirts.
We also raised £3,482.27 from donations at men’s and women’s first team games and £1,426.08 in membership fees.
