Safety. Inclusivity. Respect. Development.

The club provides the opportunity for boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 18 years old, including those with disability, from Harpenden and the surrounding district to play football in a safe environment with a focus on each player’s enjoyment and development.


We welcome boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 18 (school years 2 to 13), of any ability level. Our Inclusive football section welcomes players aged 6 or above.

Our youngest year group, the U7s, learn the core skills with a syllabus created and delivered by a professional football coach (with some help from our volunteer coaches). At U8s and above squads train once a week and in most cases have a weekly league fixture against another Hertfordshire club.

We are usually oversubscribed at each age group, including the entry level U7s. We operate a waitlist for each year and add players from that where spaces become available. Priority is typically given in order of joining the waitlist, but there are other factors we take into account including where we need adult volunteers to make additional squads viable. 

If your son or daughter would like to play for Colts, please add their details to the waitlist using the button below . If you provided your details to the club prior to 7 November 2021, then your place on the list is already recorded.

Season end

Most league matches will finish on or by the last weekend in May. Our training sessions will continue until Saturday 26 th June 2021. Squads may enter summer tournaments which run into July.


Due to the late running of this season, there will be an overlap with the registration process for the 2021/22 season. We’ll be in touch in due course with further details.
