Tournament 2016 2

Castle Combe Colts welcomed nearly 200 teams from across the West Country and beyond as the club’s ever-popular summer tournament once again showcased all that is great about the grassroots game in England.

Tournament 2016 8

The 1,500 youth footballers on show ranged in age from the Colts’ youngest members, the under-6s MiniKickers, right through to the under-18s, who raised the curtain on the three-day festival on Friday evening alongside an inaugural competition for under-15s girls that was supported by six clubs from Wiltshire and Bristol.

Tournament 2016 4

Respect and sportsmanship were two primary themes of the weekend and the home club’s under-8s led by example as their Blacks team picked up one of the two fair play awards on offer on Saturday.
Colts chairman David Lewis said: “We are determined to see our tournament played in a good spirit and thank all of the participating clubs for making sure that tradition was maintained once again this year.

Tournament 2016 5

“Win, lose or draw, the fact we are involved in a sport we all love while upholding the values promoted by the FA’s Respect guidelines should make us all proud. We provide these events for the enjoyment of our children and we must never forget this.
“We hope that many friendships have been formed throughout the weekend and that all of our visitors, old and new, continue to consider us a tournament worth attending in future years.”

Tournament 2016 7

Mike Cook and Jo Hughes oversaw the organisation of the tournament and were assisted across the weekend by the club’s tireless committee members and a host of parent volunteers, who helped man the control tower, park cars and serve hundreds of beefburgers, hot dogs and other refreshments. The 450 matches that packed out the programme were expertly officiated by Julian Sattin’s team of enthusiastic referees.

Tournament 2016 6

Lewis was quick to thank them all for their respective contributions to what he called a “rich experience”, together with the invaluable support provided by Wavin Ltd, By Brook School, Chippenham Lions Club, Practical Van Hire, Superior Printing, Wiltshire Wood Recycling, Colin Ward and the Lysley Family.

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.

Supermarine J

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.”
