Castle Combe Colts FC invites old friends and new to come and join us in a Festival of Football this summer.
Our popular annual tournament has genuinely completely 'sold out' in each of the last couple of years and we have limited room for expansion (see exciting news of our first venture into girls' competitions), as we use every inch of our field as it is! So, book early to avoid disappointment.
The festival takes place on the first weekend of July. Clubs may enter a maximum of two teams in any of the following age groups.

FRIDAY, JULY 1
Lads' U17/U18 competition
Girls' U14/U15 competition

SATURDAY, JULY 2
U7s, U8s, U10s, U12s, U14s, U16s (U7s & U8s will be a non-competitive festival-type event)
 
SUNDAY, JULY 3
U9s, U11s, U13s, U15s

NB: Please note, age-group day allocation may be subject to change, depending on the number of entries


An entry form & a set of sanctioned rules are available to download below.
Due to a slow take up from U17s/U18s in recent years, we are changing our Friday night offering to include a category for U15 Girls (U14s can play also).
We will limit the number of entries to both the U17/U18s and U15 Girls' competition to 10 as we want to be careful not to over extend the tournament.
Every effort will be made to accommodate an entry of two teams per team per age group, but should this not be possible the money for the second team listed will be refunded.
All entries will be dealt with on a first come, first served basis.
The entry fee is £20 per team. We will charge £3 per car for parking and a programme. Additional
programmes can be purchased from the sellers at £2 each.
Cheques should be made payable to Castle Combe Colts FC and be sent with an application
form. The closing date for entries will be May 31, 2016. NO PLACES WILL BE CONFIRMED UNTIL AFTER THIS DATE. They will be sent out by email, so make sure you include your address. If you want confirmation by post, you will need to include a paid SAE.
Please note that the tournament is only open to teams affiliated to their own County Association.
There will be ample parking within a short walking distance of our sportsfield.
Information concerning start times etc. will be forwarded by email after the closing date.
No refunds shall be considered should any team be withdrawn from the tournament.

Yours in Sport,

Trevor Newman (CCCFC secretary)

The COLTS embraced the FA RESPECT campaign, which kicked off for the 2015-16 season with a 'Set Your Stall Out' weekend on October 10&11.

U13 skipper Alex Perry - resplendent in RESPECT cap - presented the Lidiard Millicent skipper with a captain's RESPECT armband, while the teams carried out a well-rehearsed handshake before their North Wilts League match.

Later in the day, the U12s Whites hosted Swindon Supermarine J and posed for a joint team picture before kick-off. The game itself was played in a fantastic spirit by both teams, who enjoyed plenty of encouragement from the sidelines. It was superbly controlled my the man in black, referee Andrew Lewis.

Across the county, teams showcased their continued commitment and support of the FA RESPECT programme. Their positive actions will assist in helping young players experience a safe and fun environment in which to enjoy and develop in the game.

Furthermore, a positive environment will inevitably result in everybody involved in game wanting to keep coming back and enjoying their experience week after week - whether as players, referees, parents, coaches or spectators.

CCCFC 2015 1

Goals galore, triumph, despair and, above all, outstanding sportsmanship – Castle Combe Colts’ record-breaking 2015 festival of football had the lot.
The three-day spectacular, overseen by tireless members of the organising committee and a huge army of parent volunteers,  attracted more teams than ever before as 1,200 footballers aged between four and 18 together with their supporters descended upon Colts’ picturesque headquarters in Upper Castle Combe.
After kicking off on Friday night with the U17/18s competition, Saturday’s action was played out in glorious sunshine and was crowned by a triumph for the hosts’ U14 side, who beat Ferndale Rodbourne 3-1 in the final. After a damp start, things quickly heated up on Sunday and the U9s Whites made it a Colts double before the U13s Whites so very nearly emulated them in the last of the weekend’s 470 matches, losing to a golden goal from opponents FC Chippenham Vipers after an absorbing battle.
Bath City Youth also won two of the age groups – the U17/18s and U12s – with Holt, Melksham Town, Greenmeadow Youth, Oxfordshire visitors Harwell & Hendred, AFC Corsham and Westbury Youth sharing the other honours.
Colts chairman Trevor Newman thanked Mike Cook and Jo Hughes for heading up the organisation of the event, grounds manager Ken Neale for ensuring the pitches were presented in immaculate condition, referee supervisor Julian Sattin and his team of officials, and the numerous commercial organisations whose backing helped to make the weekend such a success.
He added: “My thanks also go to the parents and coaches for choosing to join us in our celebration of the beautiful game. Only by making the commitment that they do, do young footballers get the chance to experience something like our festival.
“The fantastic spirit of competitive commitment aligned with mutual respect and friendship defines Colts tournaments and I was delighted to see the club’s culture of ‘learning in a fun and positive environment’ supported by so many who came to visit us on what was a wonderful  weekend.”

Castle Combe Colts players and coaches have been helping the Football Association in its efforts to commemorate the centenary of one of the most iconic moments of the First World War – the 1914 Christmas Truce.
 ‘Football Remembers Week’ runs from December 5-14 and is joint collaboration between The FA, the Premier League, the Football League and the British Council. The aim is to engage football fans and players at every level about what took place on Christmas Day one hundred years ago on the battlefields in Belgium.
On December 25 1914, soldiers from both sides put down their weapons and crossed into ‘no man’s land’ to share in an impromptu ceasefire. First-hand accounts from the time include references to football being played and photographs taken.
All joint team photos uploaded to social media using #footballremembers will be automatically uploaded to a special website – www.footballremembers.com – which will act as a moment of record of football in 2014, a century on from the First World War, and will be preserved for future generations.
HRH The Duke of Cambridge, President of The FA, said: “It promises to be a powerful way to engage and educate young people about such an important moment in our history. We all grew up with the story of soldiers from both sides putting down their arms on Christmas Day, and it remains wholly relevant today as a message of hope over adversity, even in the bleakest of times.”
