TREASURERS REPORT 2006/2007
Once again, HRFC has had a successful season both on and off the pitch. I attach a breakdown of the full accounts showing income and expenditure but detail here a summary of accounts.
The major source of income is from the annual registration fees. This amounted to £2257.50.. We continue to keep our registration fee as low as possible to ensure that football is available to as many youngsters as possible. The other source of income in previous years was from the Tea stall. This amounted to an income of £142.64 with an expenditure of £78.03, a net income of £64.61 this year. The tea stall has now ceased due to Health & Safety regulations. Donations of £400 from Lloyds TSB, £500 from Gardline Geosciences, £232 from Mrs Friedel for Spree Books sales and £500 from Deepocean Subsea Services have all helped to boost club funds and buy much needed equipment – many thanks to these 4 organisations/individuals for their support. A grant of £1170 from the Football Foundations has assisted greatly.
* TOTAL INCOME FOR THE SEASON WAS £6475.01 *
This season we have paid for a further 5
coaches to be trained amounting to £456.
The Christmas Party cost £335.95 and was a great success. We have spent a total of £1217.76 on
equipment including First Aid kits, Bibs, Goals, Balls pumps, Cones and
Spikes. A further £212 has been spent on
other courses/workshops for coaches including First Aid & Criminal Bureau reference
checks undertaken by the FA on all coaches associated with HRFC. A further £140 was paid for Match Fees for
our Away fixtures. £174 was paid to
Norfolk FA for our Affiliation Fee & Insurance. And a further £350 was paid to
* TOTAL EXPENDITURE FOR THE SEASON WAS £4101.45 *
The club had a starting balance of £1212.21 and now has a balance of £3583.77. Further expenditure will be for the fun day expenses and trophies.
I am delighted to say that the club was successful in it’s application for charitable status. This has meant we now have a charity number and can apply for funds/donations from grant making organisations. We have also embarked on an ambitious plan to raise funds for a new club hut/store room. We have so far raised £1371 with donations from Lloyds TSB (£500), Broadland District Council (£500, OpenContact (£150), A Raffle (£96), Eyre Electrical (£100) & Chaplin Farrant (£25). A further £1000 has been allocated from club funds making a total of £2371 available immediately. I am grateful to everyone who has helped in making our plans for a new hut come closer to fruition.
The club is in a very healthy position and looking forward to the new season. Some of the equipment will need to be replaced before we start training again. Assuming the return of the majority of our players and a new Under 6 year Group starting, then the forthcoming season looks to be a very good one for HRFC with the new hut hopefully being in place by this time next year.
