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.”

Respect to all as CCCFC's weekend of fantastic football goes down a storm PDF Print E-mail

Football was the clear winner when Castle Combe Colts staged another hugely successful tournament from June 27-29.
The three-day festival saw plenty of cheers – as well as a few tears – as around 1,200 players aged from 4-18 strutted their stuff at the club’s Upper Castle Combe headquarters.
They did so in all weathers, with an electrical storm on Saturday morning bringing thunder, lightning and ice-cube sized hailstones, forcing a delay of around 30 minutes as youngsters and their parents took shelter. The sun eventually showed its face, however, much to the relief of the odd-numbered age groups taking part on Sunday.
Respect was shown both on and off the impeccably-prepared pitches as the ever-popular tournament once again attracted a capacity field of 166 teams.
Colts under-9s ensured that at least one piece of silverware remained on home soil by progressing to the final of their competition without conceding a goal and then winning it on penalties from Melksham Town.
Yate United, FC Calne, FC Chippenham, Wootton Bassett, Bath Arsenal, Westbury Youth, Devizes Town and Pewsey shared the other prizes, with Chippenham Town and Trowbridge Wanderers winning the Fair Play prizes at under-7 and 8 level respectively.
Colts chairman Jon Clark thanked the club’s army of tireless volunteers for making the event possible and added: “Every year our tournament is played in good spirits and enjoyed by all those who attend – and the 2014 event certainly upheld this tradition.
“I think everybody could go home proud of the way they behaved – win, lose or draw – and the weekend was a fantastic success from start to finish.”

An electrical storm which brought hailstones the size of footballs and thunder and lightning to Castle Combe Sportsfield could not stop hundreds of young footballers from strutting their stuff on the opening day of the Colts’ annual tournament.
