Our objective is simple; to provide high quality football to all children in Saffron Walden and the surrounding areas regardless of ability. Our cohort of over 150 coaches are all CRB checked, have Safeguarding Children and First Aid qualifications and every team has at least one FA Qualified Level 1 coach. Most have more. Our new Soccability initiative has launched with great success enabling disabled children to fulfil their footballing ambitions.  We are a registered Charity (number 801764) and run by volunteers. All subscriptions go towards providing quality football for our members and supporting the qualification of our coaches.

Why the community needs us
Our impact on the community
With over 600 players, over 150 coaches and fielding 50 league teams in season 2022-23, our reach is wide. We have found success on the pitch and our teams regularly compete and are successful in league and cup competitions. Our success is measured by more than silverware though - we believe our greatest strength lies in our inclusivity measured by the number of children playing and enjoying football delivered by dedicated and qualified coaches.
