Season 2020-2021 Subscription Fees

This season we have decided not to increase subs. However, an increase in costs (mainly for the new 3G pitch) and complaints about the quality of the jackets has meant that we have decided to remove the jackets from the purchased kit to keep the subscriptions at the same level.

You are welcome to consider purchasing other Appleton AFC branded kit (hoodies, jackets, windbreakers, etc) from our club shop at Touchline.

WJFL - (Mainly) Boys Teams

The subscriptions for the year are the same for all boys teams.

  • U7-U18: £180

For this each player gets a full kit (shirt, shorts, socks) along with all the all training sessions from September to July on 3G and a full season of matches home and away all included. Kit lasts for 2 years.

CGFL - Girls Teams

Subs for girls are banded on age

  • U14-U16: £165
  • U12-U13: £150
  • U9-U11: £140

For this each player gets a full kit (shirt, shorts, socks) along with all the all training sessions from September to July on 3G and a full season of matches either at the central venue in Moss Farm, Northwich or of home and away matches. Kit lasts for 2 years.

Girls have lower costs, and tend to play fewer matches, and hence have lower subs.

Training Players

Players who come to training only, and are not part of match days squads are £90.

 Academy

The Academy is for boys for U5 and U6 (YR and Y1 at school). There is also a girls academy for U7 and U8 (Y2 and Y3 at school)

 Academy players pay £30 per term, with all players receiving a shirt, and a trophy at the end of the season.

Sibling Discount

Sibling's in the club pay £90. You pay full price for the most expensive child.

Can I sponsor a team?

We would love to hear from potential sponsors – any funds raised for the club are invested back in to pay for training kit, match fees, venue costs, etc. Please email general enquiries to find out what options are available.  The more we can raise this way, the better the facilities & kit we can purchase, plus it helps to keep the subscription costs down.
