The following procedures are in place to ensure team Managers (or designated team Secretaries) understand and have all the needed financial support to run a successful and effective team:
Players registration can only be done at team level. Parents/players cannot pay the club directly and should contact their team's manager. For registration fees (and discounts for late starters) please refer to the table.
Please note, players who have paid the full Annual Registration fee of £175 but depart the club on or after 1st day of December of the playing season will not be eligible for any refund of annual subscription fees.
For registration information see our dedicated page for the 2022/23 season.
Match day Referee fees are payable by the club. To reduce the need for weekly payments to numerous teams, the following process is in place:
Please note that Referees fees are only applicable to U11s and above. U7s to U10s will continue to use volunteer referees which are unpaid unless a paid referee is provided by Hitchin Referee Academy.

I am the coach of a new team and I'm not sure of what I can expense?
We know getting a team off the ground can be challenging and have made special provision for new teams which includes essential items such as balls, first aid kit, cones, bibs, etc. You do not have to purchase anything yourself - please contact our Chairman, James Horobin at James.firstname.lastname@example.org who can advise what the starting support package includes.
How quickly can expenses be repaid?
Weekly payments will be made for expenses correctly filled. Ensure you include all needed details (bank account, description, etc) to ensure there is no delay. Please note that an emailed request for payment without attaching an expense form will not be responded to or paid.
My team requires additional equipment - can I expense for it?
Please note that extra kit or equipment for your team are purchased at your discretion and not claimable. To cover additional equipment many teams secure sponsorship, fundraise, or secure donations from parents. If you require additional balls or first aid kit refills, please contact email@example.com
I have expenses which I feel the club should be paying for?
It all depends - if in doubt - please contact us. For instance, we will reimburse you for the essential purchase of a first aid kit, but not your subs bench or the open-top bus tour at the end of the season!
Who do I contact for more help?
You can contact our Finance Manager, Ade Olabode on: firstname.lastname@example.org
