SUBSCRIPTION PAYMENTS

Late payments

The club has considerable outlay in the rental of pitches and payment for equipment, courses and referees fees. We rely on subscriptions to cover these costs and are very flexible about how these are paid. Unfortunately almost one third of the subscriptions are not set up at present which would mean the club will be in debt and have to close if this is not swiftly rectified.  Regrettably, because of the severity of this challenge the committee have decided that any player who is not up to date with subscription payments by the end of November will not be eligible to play for their respective teams and managers have been advised that they should not pick players who have no subscription plan in place.

The preferred method is via the GOCARDLESS website 

https://gocardless.com/?utm_campaign=start_collecting_payments&utm_medium=email&utm_source=product

Where a one off yearly or a monthly installment plan can be set up, this avoids the need for reminders and is an effortless method for both parties when set up. In exceptional circumstances we will accept cheque or cash monthly payments via managers but this is not as secure or as easy to administer.

Please contact Richard Wesbroom, club treasurer, or your team's manager for further advice.

CLUB WELFARE OFFICER

Child Safety at Alconbury

Given the recent investigations of coaches and historical abuse identified the FA and ourselves as a club are committed to the wellbeing and protection of all children in our care and also to the protection of volunteers from damaging rumours. To this end each club has a welfare officer and all parents and club officials need to know that the welfare officer is the first point of contact if you have any concerns, no matter how small, about the welfare of any of the children involved in football.  This is not limited to just our club as we can provide information to the FA as necessary for further investigation. 
Our Welfare Officer is James Mackrell and his photo is below.
