We have children playing in our Mini Soccer School for U5s and U6s and league teams from U7s to U18s. We offer football for children with all levels of ability - there is a team for everyone.

Our teams compete in the Cambs Mini Soccer League, Cambs Colts League, Royston Crow League and Eastern Junior Alliance League (EJA). With over 500 children, our club is one of the largest in Essex and still growing. We were awarded the Essex FA Charter Standard Club of the Year in 2018 and continue to strive to achieve the highest standards.

" Football has to be fun for kids or it doesn't make sense. "

— Johann Cruyff

" We don't need to be screamers on the sideline. I think we can create an environment where the kid is in charge of his own game. "

— Jurgen Klinsmann

We support our volunteer coaches and assistant coaches by funding their attendance at FA training courses. We have one of the highest number of qualified coaches at any youth football club in Essex.

Our coaches and assistant coaches are all CRB checked and have a valid Safeguarding Children and Emergency Aid certificate. We take these qualifications and checks seriously. This is why we have maintained our FA Charter Standard for the last 5 years and were awarded Essex FA Charter Standard Club of the year in 2018.

All teams have at least one FA Level 1 qualified coach and many have two or more. We’ve also have 18 Level 2 qualified coaches at the club and these numbers are increasing all the time. One of our coaches has achieved UEFA B Level 3!


With teams competing at all levels in the Cambs, Royston Crow and EJA leagues we can offer our players football at a development level that suits them best.


Our sister club Saffron Walden PSG offers league football for girls in Saffron Walden and the surrounding areas. Together we are raising the funds to support #myCommunity3G.

Our senior club partner, Saffron Walden Town FC, was formed in 1872, and are the oldest club in Essex still in existence, and the 19th oldest in the world. The “Bloods” as they are known, because of the red in the club colours were founder members of the Essex County Football Association in 1882. We aspire to provide the next generation of SWTFC players!

" Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do. "

— Pele

In partnership with Saffron Walden County High School, we are building a new state-of-the-art 3G pitch in 2021. Work is well under way - by the end of the summer this first-class football facility will be available for use by local children.

Well done to all our fabulous #Soccability players who finished for a hard earned Summer break at the weekend 😅

Our Pan-Disability sessions are open to any child up to 16 years old and take place every Saturday at Saffron Walden County High School between 1pm and 2pm. ⚽️

The sessions are very much based on fun, friendship and confidence building. The football development and progression we’ve seen from every single child has been a real joy 👏👏

We know that the children look forward to each Saturday and for the coaches, it’s the highlight of the week! But we want it to be bigger and better - we need more participants! And we aim to launch Adult (open age) sessions in the new season too - more about that very soon.

There is no charge for the sessions - thanks entirely to the generosity of our sponsors, Croucher Needham 💪🙏🙏

A HUGE thank you is needed to all the coaches and volunteers - they’ve been brilliant. Well done, everyone! 🔴⚫️⚽️

As the 2021/22 season draws to a close, our U6 #MiniSoccerSchool players have been enjoying some friendly matches to prepare them for #minisoccer league from September.

Today, two teams played 5v5 matches away at Isleham - suffice to say that there were LOTS of goals for both clubs in both matches, and all the boys had great fun ⚽️⚽️⚽️

Well done to all the boys who took part today 👏👏👏
