           James, Lee and Derek were effectively given responsibility for running the club by Graham Hunter after the departure of Ross Hutton and himself. Chris has                since gotten involved and has provided valuable support. Alan volunteered to take a key role in looking at the club’s current finances and making projections                going forward.


2.        Review of last year’s accounts.

            Alan presented the current situation with regards to income and expenditure for the club’s bank account over last season.


3.        Plan for the session ahead: teams and competition entry.

            Based on the current players registered and the availability of coaches within the club, going forward, the club will have the following teams:

            ** The Senior Men’s team is to include any U18 players from the club to give them an opportunity to train/play



4.        Next year’s financial projections.

            Alan has built a spreadsheet to help with projections for costs for each team and the club as a whole.

            This is based on:

  • one training session per week for U10/12

  • two training sessions per week for the U14 and U16 teams

  • one training session per week for the Senior Men

The projected costs for August to April would be:

  • £20 per month for U10/12

  • £30 per month for all other teams

A new bank account will be opened to allow a better overview of the club’s finances as we move forward.

The work of the Fundraising Committee was commended - for the success of the recent Awards Night and the Bag Packing events that have been organised.

The Gadget Doctor was thanked for their willingness to support the club with future kit sponsorship and with the organisation of a Race Night to raise funds for the club.

            Arrangements for the Race Night were also discussed.

            The way in which the club communicates with members was also discussed. For now, each coach will be responsible for finding the most effective way to                   communicate with players/parents for their team but this will be looked at as part of the development plan going forward.
