Expenditure during the month of May dropped back to its lowest levels down to £4 316.08, from the unusually high expenditure levels in April (£33 344,93, which was almost entirely due to a one-off VAT charge on legal expenses for an intellectual property legal case).
This month, given the end of the season, expenditure was low even for the usual items of spending. Training pitch and ground hires totaled £520,83 for the Men’s First Team, £100 on pitch hire for the Men’s Development Team, £125 on pitch hire for the Women’s First Team as well as £625 for the Youth Training pitch hire.
The various teams spent some cash on various items. The Women’s First Team spent another £110 on match officials, and the Women’s Development team spent £40 on match officials. The Men’s First Team spent £255 on physiotherapy services, £64.42 on physiotherapy supplies and £10 on refreshments. The Youth Training spent £126.54 on an end of season dinner. The Access for Women team spent £147.57 on portable goal posts and £60 was spent on a Mental Health First Aid Course for the Women’s First Team.
In terms of merchandise, £117 was spent on programme printing costs, £29,99 on a credit card reader, and £40.62 on MailChimp credits. The finance committee spent the usual monthly £24,70 on the accounting software, as well as £30,22 on bank fees.
This month, the League Liaison Committee spent £45.75 on disciplinary fines and £90 on player registration to the Clapham’s Saturday League, as well as £534 on tickets for the Alec Smith Premier Cup. A £666 was spent on Matchday Security.
Community outreach spent £88.26 on refreshments, £31.21 on footballs, £31.65 on training bibs. £14,99 on training cones and £14 on travel costs for FARE event.
The membership database MemberMojo subscription cost us £333,33 this month.
In terms of income, the Club’s income decreased this month from £7975,66 in April to £6,952.59 this month.
The merchandise again pulled off a whopping £3 000.54 (after the deduction of PayPal fees of £107.81).
Membership this month brought in £639.61 after £35,39 deduction in fees. We saw another steady stream of membership subscriptions. Above average for the previous three years (47.67) but it was overall down 5 subscriptions on the same period in 2021. However, the drop in membership income was supplemented by a slight increase in accompanying donations (£112 up £19, or 20.43%).
The income generated is also largely due to the generous donations collected by our members and fans. Match Day donations for the Men’s First Team brought in a whopping £2317.84 after 129.57 in fees. Other donations include £410 at the Women’s 5s session, as well as £335 of cash donations, £111.11 of other donations, £30,68 of direct debit donations.
In reporting the club’s expenditure, VAT is listed separately. In May, we only collected £329.07
and spent £401.63.
