Signing a New Player

If you are approached by a new player, it is recommended that you invite them along to a few training sessions to se how they get on not only in terms of ability but more importantly with you and your squad members. It is also important that you get to know the player's parent/guardians because before making any decision to sign the player.

When signing a new player it is very important that you ask their parents or guardians to complete a Membership form before they play for you. You should download a blank form and email it to the appropriate parent/guardian and ask them to fill it out online. If they are unable to do this either they or you can print off a paper copy and complete this.

Completed membership forms should be returned to registrations@ltyfc.org.uk along with a jpeg photo of the player (passport like headshot please) and a jpeg photo of either a passport or birth certificate.

What happens next?

The Club Secretary will inform you of the membership fee that will need to be paid. You will need collect and deliver this to the Club Treasurer who will notify the Club Secretary that the fee has been paid.

Only then will the Club Secretary register your new player with the appropriate league. Once the league has approved your player's registration your player will be available for selection.

Membership 2019-2020

The Benefits of Membership

The Player’s Fee is an all-in annual membership of Leighton Town Youth Football Club that is paid at the start of the season. As part of this cost we will cover all football related expenses such as affiliations to the Bedfordshire FA and leagues, insurances, match fees including referee expenses, training costs and equipment. You will also be provided with a kit to play in.

How Much Does it Cost?

The fee consists of a family membership charge and graduated match subscriptions that reflected the additional match costs incurred as teams get older.

Where two or more siblings play for the club, the second and subsequent siblings will only have to pay the match subscriptions part of the membership fee as the family membership charge is only applicable to the eldest sibling.

If a player has a parent who is also a fully qualified member of the coaching staff or sits on the committee, the family membership charge is waived altogether.

Player’s joining after the start of the season will be given a 10% reduction of the match subscriptions for every full month not played (September to May). Player’s leaving during the season will be refunded 10% of their match subscriptions for every full month left (September to May). The family membership charge is non-refundable.

Payment is made in full when you join or when you renew your membership at the start of the season.
