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.

Shocking news! Castle Combe Colts install defibrillator at HQ PDF Print E-mail

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.
