In 2020 we temporarily reduced match fees from £10 to £5. This was done above all as a reward to our players who did not get as much cricket for their annual membership as in normal times. However, this is not a sustainable amount moving forward as we need matchday revenue to cover matchday costs.
We have set match fees for the upcoming season at £7 per player per match. This accounts for the fact that teas will not be provided this year and it is set at a level that allows us to cover all match day costs, such as officials, travel costs, and matchballs.
We will be charging £5 per player per match for the pre season friendlies listed above.
If you are planning to play in any of these pre season matches, you must have taken out a membership for 2021. All existing memberships expire(d) on 31st March 2021.
