The Under 16 Girls’ squad were congratulated on their achievement of winning both the National Inter-County Cup and the Midland Counties Cup

6. Treasurer’s

Report The Treasurer presented a rather pessimistic report with a deficit of approaching £3,000 on the season. He commented on the help which the ESFA gave towards the national stages of the Under 16 girls’ progress towards the national title and the grant which the County Association received from Stafford. He also commented on the grant received from the Nottinghamshire FA towards the cost of running the side. Thanks were due to these bodies for their financial support. Competition fees were also a benefit to the finances. The Treasurer suggested that the decline of the grant from the Local Authorities would again decline in the next financial year. He questioned the amount of expenses paid to referees which was much greater than in previous seasons.

M Simmonds pointed out that the support of the Nottinghamshire FA towards the Under Girls Squad was still awaited as the final invoices had not yet been confirmed by the Secretary of the squad. He said that it would be a far larger sum than last year because of the increased number of matches and hoped that the cost of track suits for the National Final would also be covered. He also reported that Reprotec had renewed their sponsorship of the Association with some increase in the amount of administrative support through credit notes.

B Shackley asked whether the Treasurer felt that the competition fees had been set at the correct level; it was agreed to discuss fees at the next committee meeting.

The Hon. Treasurer’s Report was accepted and he was thanked for his work during the year.
