Bishops Cleeve Colts Football Club is nearly 44 years old – founded by Len Taylor, in 1971. The Chair has changed regularly over the years but the club’s ETHOS is still as strong today as it was then.

We believe in giving our local young people a quality start to their personal and social development from an early age. We’re not just about teaching boys and girls how to kick a ball and score goals. Winning is great, but we’re committed to helping develop healthy, fit, active and happy local citizens of the future.

From The Chair

“It is an honour to have been elected to Chair of Bishops Cleeve Colts which has played such a large part in mine and my childrens’ lives, and personal development to date. With both my son and daughter playing in teams with the club, I look forward to continuing my involvement which started back in 1979 as a player through to a coach in recent years.

We have a large number of enthusiastic managers and coaches who always endeavour to build confidence and teamwork in the children through encouragement and motivation in matches and training. All involved are volunteers giving their own time to run the teams and attend FA accredited courses so that they are qualified to a level to benefit the children in their personal development.

We look forward to and fully appreciate the continued support of the growing community in Bishops Cleeve from all of the volunteers, parents, children and local businesses that enable us to keep the club funded and running for the enjoyment of the children.”
