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. We are currently fundraising for a top quality 3G pitch – this will be coming to Saffron Walden County High School in 2020.

" 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.

SWCFC to Launch "Walking Football" on new 3G AGP at Saffron Walden County High School ⚽⚽

There are many Community benefits of the new 3G pitch, and a major one is that we're able to offer different formats of football that were not possible before.🙌🙌

One such format is "Walking Football" which you may have heard about. We'd love to be able to offer this, with our Partners, in #SaffronWalden.

We've started with an enquiry to the The Walking Football Association and we would like to establish what interest there might be from residents - male and female - in a Sunday morning or Friday evening session (or both!).

thewfa.co.uk/

You can learn more about it in this promotional video from The WFA. If you're interested then please can you help us by responding to this Doodle Poll via this link 👇👇

doodle.com/poll/7sgi42n2kx5s2sds?utm_source=poll&utm_medium=link

We look forward to hearing from you!

3G AGP Construction Update - Week 18 - and a "hold the date" notice!📣📣

We're reaching the end game on the construction of our new 3G Artificial Grass Pitch at Saffron Walden County High School!

Contractors TigerTurf UK Ltd and McArdle Sport-Tec Ltd have around two weeks of work left - they're currently onto the surfacing of the new car park 🚗🚗and then they need time for performance checks to ensure that the pitch meets UEFA quality standards. ✅

This week we have submitted a key "Community Use Agreement" to Uttlesford District Council and the School will start installing 4 x new electric vehicle charge points 🚘⚡which is a Planning Condition before the new pitch can be used.

It's all looking fabulous and we can't wait for you all to see it - and for our boys and girls to play on it, every week! ⚽

We'll be revealing details about the "launch" event soon - please keep the morning of Saturday, September 4, free in your diaries if you can! 📅

We'll issue another update next week, and there'll be more details coming soon about more Community activities on the new pitch ⚽🔴⚫️

Looking brilliant everyone 👏👏 Well Done 😊 🤩

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT - SWCFC AND SWPSGFC TO BECOME FIRST UK GRASSROOTS PARTNER CLUB FOR SPURS!

Saffron Walden Community FC and Saffron Walden PSG FC are delighted to announce the launch of a Partnership with Tottenham Hotspur's Global Football Development team, which will start in September 2021.

The arrangement is the first of its kind for Spurs in the UK with a Grassroots football club and will see them hosting weekly player development sessions for boys and girls every Friday evening on our new Community 3G pitch at Saffron Walden County High School. Spurs will also be offering Player Development Programmes at SWCHS in every school holiday.

SWCFC and SWPSGFC will benefit from Coaching support from Spurs’ highly qualified team, with visits from Spurs coaches to mentor the Saffron Walden coaching staff.

Andy Rogers, Head of Global Football Development at Tottenham Hotspur, said:

Tottenham Hotspur’s Global Football Development programme has a proven track record of developing players from grassroots to elite level across the world.

We have been extremely impressed with the Saffron Walden Community FC and Saffron Walden PSG FC infrastructure and their clear passion and commitment for player and coach development. We are delighted to be launching our first UK based Youth Club Partner and look forward to working with them to develop players at coaches at every level within the clubs. “

Matt Clare, SWCFC Secretary, said:

“We’re thrilled to have reached an agreement on this ground breaking Partnership with such a prestigious Premier League club. We have been working on this with Spurs for a long time and we are so pleased that the timing of this announcement coincides with the opening of our new 3G artificial grass pitch.

Much of the funding for the 3G AGP has come from the Premier League via the Football Foundation, so it is fitting that we have been able to reach this agreement with Spurs. We are honoured that they have chosen Saffron Walden’s boys and girls for their first Partnership of this kind in the UK”.

Trevor Bissett, SWPSGFC Chair, said:

“We see wide reaching benefits in the Partnership for all of our young players, and for our coaches too. The support and mentoring from Spurs will raise the quality of our coaching across the board.

We are confident that this Partnership will offer our players great opportunities to develop and progress their football journeys.”

The Partnership runs for an initial period of two years and starts in September 2021. We can't wait to get started!
