CCCFC FESTIVAL OF FOOTBALL 2021 - JULY 2-4 Print

Tournament Facebook post June

 

With grassroots football well and truly back, we’re delighted to be in a position to announce it’s all systems go for the Castle Combe Colts Summer Festival of Football 2021 on the weekend of July 2-4.

We’ve been overwhelmed by the response from our footballing friends across the county and beyond since we set the date a few months back. Our capacity will be cut to 140 teams this year to allow for more distancing and 220 teams have already shown an interest in taking part.

After the most turbulent 14 months any of us can remember, we know how quickly things can change so for one year only there will be a scaling back of some of the elements that normally set the CCCFC tournament apart from the rest. These include:

- 140 teams instead of 260
- 6 pitches instead of 7
- Open-air platform for presentations, rather than trailer
- All refreshments served from tea hut and ice cream van
- No barbecue
- Clubhouse toilets in use, to be cleaned regularly by professionals
- Volunteer Covid marshals
- Hand sanitiser stations around the sportsfield

If your club was one of the first to sign up, then you’ll receive an email in the coming days asking you to secure your place by paying the entry fee of £30 per team within a fortnight. If the deadline isn’t met then we’ll be working our way through the reserve list on a first come, first serve basis.

This list is lengthy in a few age groups and we will be sorry to have to disappoint a few who want to enjoy the best tournament for miles around - but our top priority is staging a safe and enjoyable celebration of the beautiful game for all players, spectators and volunteers and we are determined to make it happen.

CCCFC awarded FA Charter Standard accreditation for 2020/21 Print

Charter Standard

Not even lockdown can stop the Colts getting results!

We're proud and delighted to announce Wiltshire's No 1 grassroots club has earned FA Charter Standard accreditation for yet another season.

We're committed to providing a safe, fun and inclusive place for every member of the Colts family to play, enjoy and be inspired by the game and this recognition underlines the tireless efforts of our volunteer army of coaches and committee members - secretary Mike Poole deserves special mention for ensuring compliance with the FA's thorough guidelines.

This status is not easily won - especially in this most testing of years - and proves once again our club is built to last and the best for miles around.

CCCFC MINIKICKERS - COME AND JOIN IN THE FUN Print

Minikickers

MK1Do you have a football-mad son or daughter in Reception or Year 1 at school?

Our MiniKickers section for boys and girls aged 4 to 6 is one of the longest-running and successful in the Chippenham area - many of our current under-18s squad started their football journey with this group and are still proudly playing in black and white stripes today!

We're always on the lookout for new recruits (as well as aspiring parent coaches!). We're an award-winning, Charter Standard club and all of our teams are coached by fully-checked FA-qualified coaches. All drills are fun-based and our ethos means players of all abilities are welcome.

Our MiniKickers train on Saturday mornings during term time. Sessions are held outside on grass at Yatton Keynell or Castle Combe, or indoors at Sheldon School depending on the time of year. The first 4 sessions are free as a taster and, after that, children can get a year's worth of coaching for only £20.

DESERVED HONOUR FOR CLUB LEGEND Print

Dave Lewis

 

Colts legend David Lewis was recognised for 15 years of dedication to the club and football in the county in the FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Awards 2020.

David, who led last year’s U18s from their MiniKickers days right through to the end of their youth football career, has also served the club as Respect ambassador, sportsfield manager, kit manager and chairman.

He was named as the runner-up in the Wiltshire FA’s Volunteer of the Year category.

The awards celebrate individuals, teams, clubs, projects, leagues and volunteers who put their heart and soul into the grassroots game and inspire us all.

Trevor Newman, who succeeded David as Colts chairman and worked alongside him as secretary, said: “The longevity, consistency and quality of Dave’s coaching and administration mean he is fully deserving of this recognition.

“He is an exceptional coach, so popular with his players many of whom have been with him for 14-plus years! It is his values, hard work and tenacity that sets him apart though.

“He has role modelled getting higher coaching qualifications. He has improved our club through his work in all roles.

“His teams play in the right way and with the right behaviours and values. He is passionate about the game but knows where the boundaries are and how to conduct himself. He doesn’t take the easy route, but always finds the right one. “It’s been a pleasure to work alongside him for so long.”
