Welc0me to the Club

We are privileged that you have chosen us for your child to join and play football. The Club’s ethos is one of developing players in a fun, interesting and supported environment. If your child is joining us at a young age, with no previous experience of playing football, the Club puts great emphasis on the children developing their technical capabilities and learning about football. We put no pressure on the players or coaches to win matches at any cost. If this sits uncomfortably with you and you demand your child should be winning trophies in their first season, this is probably the wrong Club for you.

However, we are pleased to confirm we are England Football Accredited and all members associated with the Club strive for best practice in everything they action on behalf of the Club.

Please refer to the Club website for our policies and procedures; we would ask you to take the time to become familiar with these important documents. This will enable you to see that we do adhere to all what is expected of a Charter Standard Club, but it also gives information on what we expect of you, as parents/supporters.

Regarding how the Club functions, this is something that we like to thank our committed volunteers for as they take the time to play a part in their children’s sport. Our volunteers range from administrative functions, committee members and team Coaches.  Without the dedication of each of our helpers, the Club could not continue, and the children would not have a foundation to work on.

Continuing with the important role of the team Coaches, this is something that we would like to introduce you to, if you have an interest as a parent/guardian, as a member of the Club. Your child may be joining a brand-new team within Maidenbower Colts Football Club or may be joining an established team. On both counts, the role of the Coach is important, but we feel we could never have enough Coaches on board to ensure the correct level of support and consistency is given to the children.

You may well find the perception of becoming a Coach a daunting one – it should not be! If you speak with any of our existing Coaches, they will all tell you what a rewarding experience it is and that they would not want to give it up! What a great way to spend your spare time helping the development of our young players and learning more about the game yourself.

To become a Coach, we would initially ask you to commit to undertaking the FA Level One Coaching Course. There are several courses throughout the year, held locally, and the cost of this would be reimbursed by the Club in 50% instalments over a two-year period. As a qualified Coach supporting the Club you would also benefit from a £5 per month reduction in subscriptions. It doesn’t get much better than that – a qualification and a reduced monthly fee, you can’t go wrong!

Once the qualification is achieved, the FA License is available too and for three one-hour sessions of CPD a year it is easily obtainable.

We would also need a completed DBS (CRB) application, which must be undertaken for all personnel who may be working with the children on a consistent basis.

The main commitment you must give is to take one training session a week for the team you are involved in and guide the children in their weekly football games. There are several leagues available for you to decide which one to enter, of which some leagues play on Saturday and some are on Sunday. As with the Club’s other teams, all finance is centralised. Registration fees are collected upon signing on; subscriptions are paid monthly by standing order or by an upfront payment. Kit and equipment will be ordered on your behalf and summer tournaments are booked by a designated Tournament Officer. We try and take the pain away from the coaches so they can concentrate on the football.

Should you wish to discuss any of the above further, please contact one of the members and we will be more than happy to discuss your questions.

Furthermore, we also have a team of Committee members who work hard to sustain the Club overall and we meet monthly to discuss all aspects. The minutes are shared with the rest of the Club as we believe transparency is an important part of being able to trust the Club you are part of. We also arrange various social events such as Quiz Nights, an Annual Golf Day, and an Annual Fun Day.  We are proud of the way the Club runs but we can always to with more helpers as without them it would not happen. Maybe you would like to get involved in another way so please do not be shy, step forward and join the Club wholeheartedly!

Regards

Danny Picknell

Tournament Report – U16s Black

On Sunday, Maidenbower Colts FC’s U16s Black Team played in Steyning U16 tournament. Coach Paul said:“On a very hot day in Steyning. Maidenbower Colts U16s Black Team played a 5 aside tournament.After 7 group games against some really good competition, we managed to qualify in the group to play in the semi-final against Mile Oak. After a tough game and a score of 0-0, it went to Golden Goal still finishing 0-0. So to penalties, and we won ⚽️⚽️⚽️. We played Billinghurst in the final who we had beaten 3-2 in the group stages but after a really hot day and with fatigue setting in we it wasn’t going to be the final we had hoped for and lost 3-0. Great effort from the lads in some really hot conditions and no mean feat coming runners in a competition with some really good teams” Team sponsor: DNA Ltd maidenbowercoltsfc #maidenbower #since1998 #grassrootsfootball #footballfamily #youthfootball #proudtobecolts

We’ve Been Nominated!

Yesterday we received news that Maidenbower Colts FC has been nominated for Grassroots Youth Football Club of the Year in the England Football Grassroots Football Awards 22. Entering into the 21/22 season, as we slowly transitioned out of lockdown, it felt like such a hugely important task for us. More than anything we wanted to get back to what we love doing most, playing football. But, we also felt we had a responsibility and an opportunity to help our Players regain some confidence and start to thrive again as they returned to some sort of normality. The fact that we’ve received this formal nomination is so humbling and is a genuine milestone of achievement and recognition for our football club and everyone involved. Thank you for your support. Thank you for showing up for training and matches and giving it your all. Thank you for taking the time to get involved in our off-pitch programme of activities and thank you for representing our football club so fantastically well. We are very proud to be Colts! THANK YOU. maidenbowercoltsfc #maidenbower #since1998 #grassrootsfootball #footballfamily #youthfootball #proudtobecolts #wholeclub Sussex County FA England Football

#U16s Black

Maidenbower Colts FC U16s Black Team Horsham & District Youth League U16s Plate Final 🆚 Ashurst Wood Arrows🏟 Horsham Football Club🗓 Sunday 1st May 3.50KO⏱ 2 -1⚽️ Tom – Oli🌟 ShayneCoach Paul said:“Great end to a decent season, having finished 2nd in the HDYL B league, we all headed down to Horsham FC for the U16s Plate Final against an A-league Ashurst Wood Arrows. The game started off slow with most of the possession going Ashurst’s way until a break on goal gave Tom the opportunity to put one in the back of the net, 1-0, giving us the boost we needed to get more possession and relax into the game a bit more.We came out for the 2nd half and Ashurst had stepped up a gear and was really on the fight back and to their credit and persistence got a goal back 1-1. As we got into the final 10mins Rob and I started talking about Extra time tactics and then at 77 mins Oli broke on goal taking a shot that bounced back off their keeper and Oli buried it in the back of the net making the final score 2-1. MOM went to Goalkeeper Shayne who put in a great performance like so many times this season so well deserved” Team sponsor: DNA Ltd maidenbowercoltsfc #since1998 #grassrootsfootball #youthfootball #proudtobecolts #matchreport #trophy #finals #winners #champions

Mini Colts

his morning our U6 Mini-Colts played a series of games against our friends at Crawley & Maidenbower Panthers FC. Fantastic to see how much they enjoyed the opportunity to play in a ‘local derby’ as they continue to prepare for league football, in the Crawley & District League, as U7s in September. These two teams will meet many, many more times over the years and we are so excited to see how they develop through their grassroots journey. #maidenbowercoltsfc#since1998#grassrootsfootball#proudtobecolts#youthfootball#community#maidenbower#minicolts’To find out more about Mini Colts email:minicolts@mcfc1998.com

#Shoutouts – U9s Red

Last weekend they won their League Cup Final. This weekend they won the U9 Three Bridges Tournament! Coach Keith said:“In warm conditions, we set about our group games in strong fashion after an opening win. 5 pts after 3 group games left us needing 2 wins to qualify from the group. The Players dug in and got the job done.In the semi-final, we played a strong opposition, but we dominated and got the goal to take us to the final. “FINAL” With nerves kicking in the Players found another level and we won the game. So proud of the team again. The team spirit of this group of Players is amazing.” maidenbowercoltsfc #since1998 #grassrootsfootball #footballfamily #tournament #proudtobecolts

#Shoutouts – U9s Red

Huge congratulations to our U9 Red team who won the U9 Crawley & District Youth Football League Knock Out Cup Final today. They got off to a slow start but finally picked up some pace towards to end of the first half, working together as a team to pass the ball up the pitch before getting it into the goal.The team had a rocky start to the season whilst re-establishing themselves as a team and had a drop in confidence before their cup games started but they quickly turned it around, winning all of their cup games to secure a place in the semi-finals and securing a place in today’s final.They regained their confidence, learned to believe in themselves, and believe in each other which has contributed to the teamwork we have seen over the last couple of months. We are beyond proud of them and can’t wait to see what they achieve next season. Well done to the opposition team, who were worthy finalists, for making it to the finals and giving us a good game as always. Best of luck to them for next season. maidenbowercoltsfc #since1998 #grassrootsfootball #FootballFamily #proudtobecolts #cupfinal #trophy

#Shoutouts – Caleb – U12s

A #shoutout to Caleb, a Colts U12 Player.Caleb spent all his pocket money buying chocolate to sell in order to raise funds for the Red Cross Ukraine Response. When he ran out of chocolate (and pocket money) he wrote to the CEO of Tesco who has hooked him up with plenty of new stock!After training this evening and despite the rain, his teammates and Colts from other age groups all queued up to donate to such a worthy cause in exchange for chocolate – it’s important to refuel post-training 😉Well done Caleb. We’re all very proud of you.🇺🇦 ⚽️ 🇺🇦⚽️🇺🇦⚽️🇺🇦⚽️🇺🇦⚽️🇺🇦⚽️🇺🇦⚽️🇺🇦⚽️ maidenbowercoltsfc #FootballStandsTogether #redcross #ukraine #Tesco TescoBritish Red Cross
