You might wish to add that the £ 8 etc rate is only available to early joiners, those in September and October.

I'm pretty sure the annual fees for juniors are £9, £13, and £22 with a £1 discount for online applications and applications made through an MO. The discount isn't limited to early joiners - this was incorrectly stated elsewhere and corrected by Andrew Farthing.

I think I missed that trick. To an extent, that changes how clubs and leagues may manage membership, at any rate they have no financial incentive to hurry the issue.

My correction was specifically and explicitly related to the online payment method. There are two distinct categories in which a £1 discount appears:

(1) Payment through an organisation that has signed a framework agreement with the ECF - if payment is made promptly by 31 October, the organisation is entitled to retain £1 for each membership submitted;

(2) Payment by an individual online - the £1 discount for online payment applies to memberships taken out at any time.
