West Bridgford Colts FC has been running since 1990 and has always encouraged children to join the club as soon as they start school.  Mini-Colts, in its current hugely popular form started in 2008.

The first session saw 50 eager new Colts in attendance. As we prepare for the 2019-20 season, we expect to have well in excess of 300 players aged 4-8 passing through the Mini-Colts gates every weekend.

This season’s timetable is as follows:

U5s (School year Reception):
Saturdays  10.00 – 11.00am – Spaces currently available 
Sundays 9.00 – 10.00am – Spaces currently available 

U6s (School year 1):
Saturdays  9.00 – 10.00am – Spaces currently available

Saturdays mix of home matches / away matches / training sessions; times vary but always in the morning – Currently full
Sundays:  mix of home matches / away matches / training sessions; times vary but always in the morning  limited spaces currently available 

U8s (School year 3):
Saturdays and Sundays: Home and away matches.  Mid-week evening training sessions for all longer term registered players; nights and venues vary according to which pool the player is in. – Both days are currently full

Mini Colts Girls
  9.00-10.00am (reception and year 1) and 10.00-11.00am (years 2 and 3)
Spaces currently available

PLEASE NOTE: we work very closely with all other local clubs. We also sometimes run training groups for players whilst they await a space coming up. So for any group where we are marked as currently full, please still email, and we will try to help get your child playing.

U5s, U6s and Mini-Colts girls’ sessions all take place at Nottingham Football Centre behind Rushcliffe School.

U7s matches are predominantly at Nottingham Football Centre; week night training takes place at various venues around West Bridgford.

U8s matches are predominantly at Regatta Way; week night training takes place at various venues around West Bridgford.

Courtesy of Score Coaching we have a team of highly qualified coaches (all FA Level 1 minimum but mostly FA Level 2 and above, and all very experienced at coaching children of this age) co-ordinating the sessions, all of whom are also DBS checked / first aid & safeguarding trained.

As well as coaching the children, they also mentor the volunteer parents who step forward to help – these volunteers, who will run the WBC teams as the children get older, are the lifeblood of the club.

If your child is interested in joining mini-Colts, please email with your child’s name, date of birth and whether you have a preference for Saturdays or Sundays (subject to availability).

  3. Hi, my boy is 2.5 years old. Is this too young to join the club? Also – how much is it for a term? I couldn’t see any prices on your website.

    1. Afraid we don’t start until school age but please google Soccer tots, they do some pre-school sessions, that are indoors and geared up for children of this age. Good luck and please get in touch in a few years!

  4. Hi, my son Christopher has just started in reception and would like to attend the Sunday sessions 9-10. Please could you email me to let me know if that is possible?

  5. Hello,
    My son is 17 months old and very interested in kicking a ball. Do you have any toddler sessions for his sort of age group?
    Many thanks,

    1. Hi Alice,
      That’s great that he is interested but I am afraid we don’t start until school age. If you google Soccer tots I think they do some pre-school groups – that are indoors and geared up for this age. Good luck and we look forward to hearing from you in a couple of years!

  6. Hello, my son is on reception and I would like him to start on Saturday morning sessions from 26th January (it looks like you have spaces available). Could you please email me more details?

  7. Hi,

    I can see that you have space for under 5s above. I have twin boys that would love to start straight away if possible?

    Please can someone contact me 🙂
    I have tried to email but my email keeps bouncing back.



  8. Hiya, I have just emailed but not through this form- so you might get two from me! Could I possibly book Harry Scott-Nelson in your mini colts on Saturday mornings? His date of birth is 4/2/14
    Thanks ever so much!

  9. Hi. My daughter (year 2). Would like to start playing football. Can you please give me details of how she can join? We have tried email, but not had a response


  10. Hi,

    My son would like to join the U6s on Saturday mornings (9-10). Could you tell me the best way to organise this,
