Over the years it has been a constant struggle to keep the Club financially viable.In addition to membership and playing fees, Club finances have needed to be supplemented by a variety of fund-raising methods such as raffles, “100 Clubs” and canteen sales.

The 1976-77 season marked a new initiative with Club sponsorship being arranged – a trend that was to continue in later years.

Tony Williams of A.J.F. Williams Insurances agreed to sponsor the Club and this sponsorship “greatly helped to provide adequate gear” for the junior and senior sides.

The following season additional’ sponsorship was gained from “Booths Sport ‘N Things” to make the Club one of the first in the District to have dual sponsors.

The extra financial support enabled the Club to fix the sightscreen and to purchase a slips machine and some cricket gear.
