- Registration & Membership Fees
- Code of Conduct
It costs around £9,000 per season to run the Seniors section (First and Reserves teams); we’re fortunate to have some generous sponsors who subsidise membership and the rest comes from the players.
Registration & Membership Fees
Registration to the Club is done online; there is a registration fee (£15) and membership fee (equivalent of £15 per month); registration to the league is by completing a paper form. We’ll only register players to the league if they’re eligible.
Any fines incurred by you (e.g. for red and yellow cards or Respect charges) must be paid within 7 days of receiving notice from the club.
Training is held on Wednesdays, 20:00-21:00 at Round Diamond School in Stevenage; directions here. You’re expected to arrive ready to start at 20:00. The facility is a 3G surface.
Matchdays – home fixtures
Home matches are at Knebworth Recreation Ground; directions here.
Before the match the goals need to be carried out (they’re stored off the pitch to protect the goalmouths; nets are already attached), sponsor boards need to be hooked onto the pitch barrier, corner flags put out and a few other tasks; everyone is needed to help.
After the match, everything needs to be brought back in; goals, sponsor boards, corner flags etc. Again, everyone is required to help.
Everyone is encouraged to meet up at the pub afterwards; currently we go to The Red Lion in Woolmer Green.
Kit & Equipment
Players need to purchase their own shorts and socks for matches from KC Sports in Stevenage; this means:
- Players can get the exact size they want
- Players only have to buy a new pair when they want; if it is wrapped into fees then they could be paying for shorts they don’t need
- Fees are kept down because we’re not replacing kit that goes missing
- It reduces the amount of washing (and therefore cost) for the Club
From time to time we get sponsorship for t-shirts, jackets etc, where KnebFC provides branded kit it remains the property of the club and the player is responsible for looking after it; a deposit may be required.
Code of Conduct
We have a standard Code of Conduct, adopted from The FA, which you will agree to follow as part of your registration and membership; the full form can be viewed during the online registration process.
