Colchester Villa Youth Football Club

We are an England Football Accredited youth football club providing football in the community for boys and girls of all ages! We provide football for all Primary and Secondary School ages.

Our teams compete against other local clubs in Colchester and the surrounding areas. The club was formed in 1975 and has been growing ever since, with 26 teams competing in the 2022/23 season.

All our Mini-Soccer, 9-a-Side and 11-a-Side teams participate in the Colchester and District Youth League and are affiliated to the Essex County FA.


We also have an Under 6 Development Squad, who train and play friendly matches against other local sides in preparation for entering the Colchester and District Youth League set-up at Under 7’s.

Our club have a partnership with local coaching company, My Sports Junction, with the ‘KickSTARts’ training programme. These sessions, for Reception aged kids and below, act as a feeder into the club when they go into Year 1 at school.

In the last five years this partnership has seen 217 boys and girls join our club via the ‘Stepping-Up’ pathway.
