Coaching at Guildford Saints

The club is run by a small group of volunteer parents who form the Management Committee. They provide the organisational structure for the club and ensure that there are sufficient funds to carry out training and development of players.

Income for the club is derived from various sources, the majority coming from Membership fees, the remainder from social events, sponsored competitions, kit sales, our annual 6-a-side competition and sponsorship. Sponsorship is used for purchasing team kits. Sponsors enjoy kit advertising for 2 years, plus coverage in the local press and adverts in our annual 6-a-side programme. We are always happy to hear from potential sponsors.

The main expenditure for the club comes in the form of pitch hire. As the club does not have a central base we hire training facilities and match-day pitches from local schools and Borough Council. Other expenditure includes League registration fees, player registration fees, professional coaching fees, team kit, training equipment and affiliation to Surrey County FA.
