Shapes join Kent FA as Accounting Partner

New partnership will empower Kent Clubs and Leagues with professional accounting guidance.

We are thrilled to announce a new partnership with Shapes, an exciting accounting business dedicated to delivering exceptional accounting and advisory services.

This strategic alliance aims to provide crucial accounting guidance to Kent’s clubs and leagues, ensuring their long-term sustainability and success on and off the field. 

Grassroots football clubs often face financial challenges that impede their ability to invest in player development, infrastructure, and community engagement initiatives. We recognise that with volunteers running the finances at so many clubs, challenges with finance management and accounting systems are common. Recognising the importance of addressing these challenges, Kent FA has joined forces with Shapes to offer professional accounting guidance and expertise to football clubs and leagues across the county. 

Through this partnership, Shapes will provide a tailored face-to-face workshop for clubs and leagues on financial planning and accounts management, three virtual events during the season, and bite-sized video guides that will feature on the Kent FA YouTube channel. By leveraging their industry expertise and resources, the accounting firm aims to empower clubs and leagues with the tools and knowledge needed to navigate financial complexities and achieve their goals. 

Steve Kreeger, CO-Founder at Shapes said: “We are absolutely delighted to join Kent FA as their accounting partner. Both Jim and I are huge football fans, involved in local grassroots football on various levels. This partnership for Shapes is really exciting and is a natural fit for our team as we continue to support small and medium-sized businesses and organisations across Kent.”

Kent FA’s commitment to empowering clubs and leagues aligns with its mission of fostering support for volunteers through skill development and community engagement through the beautiful game. By providing access to professional accounting expertise and guidance, Kent FA aims to create a more sustainable and equitable football ecosystem for clubs and leagues of all sizes. 

The FREE face-to-face workshop will take place soon, so watch this space on how you can get involved and benefit from this exciting opportunity.
