Shocking news! Castle Combe Colts install defibrillator at HQ Print

CCCFCDefib3

Castle Combe Colts have ensured that matchdays at the club’s home ground will be a safer experience for young footballers and spectators alike.
Colts, whose 300-strong membership includes children aged from four to 18, raised money for and installed a defibrillator at their Upper Castle Combe headquarters after learning of the cardiac arrest suffered by Bradford Town’s Quinton Barham during an under-14s match last year.
Trowbridge teenager Quinton was playing in the Mid-Wilts Youth & Minor League - in which a number of Colts teams also participate – at the time and made a miracle recovery following heart bypass surgery.
Having raised more than £1,000 by helping to marshal one of Castle Combe Circuit’s monthly car boot sales last year, Colts were the first organisation to commit the subsidised funds and take delivery of the life-saving technology after the South Western Ambulance Service Trust initiated a scheme in March 2014.
They were tipped off about the project - which has since delivered a further 110 machines across the country - by Alison Butler of the Chippenham Area Partnership.
Colts secretary Trevor Newman said: “We felt we needed to make the significant investment following the incident involving a young player in the same youth league that the Colts play in.
“That showed that you can never be complacent when it comes to first aid support. Although we obviously hope that we never have to use the defibrillator at all, it is good to know it is there.”
Last week, 12 coaches and committee members from the club underwent training delivered by the South Western Ambulance Service Trust at Chippenham’s ambulance station, again the first to do so under the scheme.
It was carried out by Julia Doel and David Wilmot, whose support throughout the process has been invaluable to the club.

We don't just talk a good game - FA Respect/Fair Play Award Print

Castle Combe Colts were one of only two clubs in the whole of Wiltshire to be selected by the Wiltshire County Football Association for an award for:

Commitment to the Respect Programme and the promotion of Fair Play throughout the 2012/2013 season

This has been won by all who represent our club - coaches, players, supporters and parents -WELL DONE TO YOU ALL.

There is a £250 award with the certificate, which happily finishes off our fundraising for the defibrillator. This vital piece of equipment will now be purchased and installed in the clubhouse at Castle Combe Sportsfield.

It is easy to talk about an ethos - it's more difficult to display that ethos daily by the way we behave and act.

Well done again.

Regards,
Trevor Newman (CCCFC secretary)

Castle Combe Colts stage most successful tournament yet Print

Two of Castle Combe Colts’ youngest teams were among the prize-winners when the club staged its biggest tournament yet last weekend.

More than 1,200 youth footballers converged on the village’s sportsfield across three days as 186 teams from under-6s to 18s showcased their skills in the sunshine.

The oldest age group kicked off proceedings on Friday night, with Melksham United taking the honours.

Swindon Rangers were victorious in two categories, while the host club’s under-7s and 8s both scooped the fair play honours after receiving the highest sportsmanship marks from the event’s refereeing team.

Proud Colts chairman Trevor Newman said: "We are so lucky to have the facilities we have. They seem to make us a destination of choice when our colleague clubs are choosing which tournaments to enter – and the weather certainly helped as well.

“However, I think it is our committee and hard-working volunteers - the lifeblood of the club -  and the way they do things that provide such a positive and pleasant experience for those that visit us on an annual basis.  

“There were some fantastic skills, goals and saves on display but what I would most like to thank everyone for is the way they conducted themselves. Respect was high and behaviour was impeccable.”
