The month of June was quieter in terms of football with a couple of successful post-season friendlies. It also saw a competition to design a new home shirt and great progress at the Old Spotted Dog.
As a result, the club’s committees spending decreased from £10,528.03 in May (mainly due to merchandise costs), down to £2,999.40 in June. The largest areas of spending remains related to merchandise: £658.72 including £459.64 on postage of orders and £195.59 on PayPal fees on sales. The second largest area relates to Young Tons (£639.96) as they bought some footballs and folding goal posts and had a total pitch hire of £338,94. Other significant spending includes pitch hire for Women’s First Team of £465.00, and players insurance for 2021-2022 of £441.25.
Our income in June was also reduced from £12,980.62 last month to £7,145.85, back to its April level.

In June, we also received membership fees totalling £552.18 (after deduction of PayPal fees of £32.82). This year there has been a noticeable jump in renewals for the second half of June, compared to usually low numbers at this time of year.
