“Football has to be fun for kids or it doesn’t make sense”
– Johan Cruyff
Basingstoke Town Colts Youth Football Club is a local club dedicated to coaching of boys and girls of all ages to play football and provide the encouragement and opportunity to play in matches.
We play our home games at Water End sports ground, we also use this for our weekly run training sessions during the lighter months. In the darker months we move our teams to alternative facilities to continue their training.
Our teams play in the Peter houseman Youth, North East Hants Youth and East Berkshire Youth Leagues.
