The slow start to the new year 2022 and the large merchandise and pitch hire expenses in December 2021 resulted in low levels of expenditures this month: dropping to £3,647.98 from £14,796,52 in December.
In terms of merchandise, £291.39 was spent on import duty and agency fee, in addition to £120 pounds on programme printing costs and£33.70 on Mail Chimp.
As per usual, training pitch hires were large items of spending and totaled £900 for the Men’s First Team, £390 for the Young Tons, and £130 for the Men’s Development Team.
The Men’s First Team also spent £345 on match officials, £250 on Ground Hire, £115 on physiotherapy costs, £180 on kit laundry, and £40 on food for players.
The Women’s First Team spent £460 on coaching and £75 on match officials.
The Club’s income dropped a little to £10,040.48 from £13,011.23 in December.
This was largely thanks to the incredible work of the merchandise team and the terrific £3,747.14 they turned over this month. (after the deduction of PayPal fees of £172.7).
It was also large due to the generous donations to all the initiatives and teams of the club: £761.84 was collected by the Young Tons, a wonderful £1,725.99 was donated at the Men’s First Team game, £265 was donated at the Women’s First Team games, £230 at the Women’s 5s as well as £360 of other donations and £46.10 of direct debit donations. A further £1,315 was donated at the Women’s First Team Home Cup.
Membership this month brought in £1,422.11 after £77.89 in fees. January 2022 was our best yet in terms of Membership, with another record intake of subscriptions for the same time period (up 74.19% on 2019/2020, up 103.77% on 2021/2022). The biggest subscriptions growth was in Solidarity memberships, up 147.37%. Donations accompanying subscriptions were up 129.17% as well, despite the club running several crowdfunding initiatives, which is a very positive reflection on our membership’s generosity.
In reporting the club’s expenditure, VAT is listed separately. In January, we collected £332.46 and spent £ 571.11
