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.

We had a fabulous turn out of Saffron Walden’s finest U18 footballers at Saffron Walden County High School this morning for the first of our open sessions. 👏👏

Led by coaches Mike Riccio and Brian Peggs and with Saffron Walden Town Football Club U23 Manager Shane Mills watching on, 30 young men worked hard in the sunshine on our 3G pitch. ⚽️⚽️

There’s another session this Wednesday evening at 8:00pm; register your interest in attending with Mike Riccio 📞 07771 560459.

We’ve had another great morning of uncoached and unscripted football today at Saffron Walden County High School on our 3G AGP.

These #MashUp sessions will continue at least until the school breaks up for the Summer Holiday. ⚽️

But please can we remind everyone that the session is now split in two as follows:

10am - 11am - Primary School children (Reception to Year 6)

11am - 12pm - Secondary School children (Year 7 to Year 11)

This makes it much safer and more fun for everyone. 🔴⚫️⚽️
