Subs increase this coming season. As with all services cost tend to increase annually. The club have decided to make an increase every 3 years to allow for inflation and increased costs to provide the service. Subs help to cover the cost of administration, affiliation, equipment, facilities, training and games costs plus many many more.
On paying your subs for the coming season you are agreeing to the Terms and Conditions as set out at the bottom of this page.
Generally players will be able to play in teams with their friends if there is space and if they are the correct age for the grade. But it is not always possible to accommodate all the requests we receive.
