December 2019 income and expenditure

In December 2019, Clapton CFC spent £15,310.36, with over half of this covering an order for another batch of replica shirts (£6,704.38) and postage for sending out merchandise orders (£1,647.81).

The other major expenses were the second instalment of our rent on the stadium at Wadham Lodge for the men’s first team and an order for a new batch of scarves.

December was another quiet month because of the number of postponed games and other expenses relate mainly to the general monthly costs of running a football club.

The main exception was costs related to the visit by Abu Dis Sports Club, the Palestinian girls team from Gaza: this included Clapton CFC paying for tickets to watch West Ham Ladies beat Manchester United.

In addition to this spending, the club also donated £300 to the LGBTQ+ youth homelessness charity akt.

Our income in December was £8,273.75, with the largest element almost £6000 for merchandise orders.

With only one men’s first team game in December (our 6-5 win on penalties in the Alec Smith Cup quarter-final against Stonewall FC) and no women’s first team games, we still received £1,268.81 in match day donations.

A report on the club’s income and expenditure for the first six month’s of the year is available here.
