Maidenbower Colts Football Club started life in March 1998 with a handful of children and a couple of parents, Andy Hains, Jo Capstick, and Rosemary Dixon with who’s money, bought all the kit and equipment needed to start up the club.
The dream was to set up a big football club in Maidenbower for many children but knew that it would take many years to make it happen, however, the handful of kids soon turned into organised age groups of teams, and with the help of enthusiastic parents a successful club.
25 years down the road, Maidenbower Colts F.C. has grown into a very successful and very family-orientated club, with a great committee and dedicated coaches behind it.
The club has the aim of giving all children the chance to play and enjoy football. We are not affiliated with any professional football clubs and we choose not to be.
Children can join as young as five and are under the watchful eye of FA-qualified coaches. Our teams play in the Crawley, Horsham, and Mid-Sussex Leagues, and we welcome players from all areas to join our club.
We are working hard to make your time with us a happy one. Our main priority is the safety and well-being of everyone under the Maidenbower Colts umbrella. Maidenbower Colts FC is an ambitious club that is growing from strength to strength.
