West Bridgford Colts Football Club was formed in 1990 with the simple ethos
of providing local youngsters with a game of football. From the start our strategy
was to provide football for all, not just the more able players. We were one of
the first junior clubs in the area to regularly field multiple teams at the same age
group. Starting off with a couple of boys’ teams the club grew steadily, resulting
in us running 18 teams by 2000. In 1994 we signed a lease for the Coronation
Ground in West Bridgford. This provided us with a base with a clubhouse, as
well as 3 x 11-a-side pitches and a number of different sized small sided pitches,
for our 5, 7 and 9 a side teams.
In 1996 we started the girls section, which has grown steadily every year,
resulting in the Ladies team, West Bridgford Ladies, being formed in 2006.
In 2008 the club signed a 25 year lease for our current home, Regatta Way. The
Coronation Ground having been purchased by the council to build a new school.
The club took the wise decision to install floodlights at the new ground with an
eye of the future of the club as we always hoped to run a successful men’s team.
2010 saw the formation of West Bridgford Colts Vets.
We formed the senior men’s 1st team, West Bridgford Football Club, in 2011 to
provide an exit route for our players. We achieved promotion from Division 2 of
the Precision Notts. Senior League, finishing runners-up, as well as reaching the
final of the Nottinghamshire Intermediate Cup, losing narrowly after extra time.
In the season 2013-14, we again finished runners up in the 1st Division, to be
promoted into the Senior league of the NSL and last season, 2014-15 we were
runners up in the senior league, and finalists in the NSL cup, losing out to
Wollaton on both occasions. In the 2015-2016 season we finished 3rd in the NSL
premier league which gave the team promotion, and won the Nott’s FA
During 2016, the club installed hard standing around 2 edges of our pitch, a 100
seater spectator stand and enclosing the pitch with fencing as we planned for the
future development of the club. The total spend was something just over
£50,000. This along with our team’s efforts on the field ensured we achieved
promotion into the EMCL.
The club has now formed a second men’s team to further the clubs ambitions
and to give players the opportunity from move from Youth football into men’s
We are a Charter Standard Community Club which this season comprises of
