Subscription fees cover the cost of playing kit, training facilities, insurance, league registration fees, etc. Any matchday fines for Yellow/Red cards are not covered by the subscription and must be paid by the player.
Apologies - we can no longer accept payment by cheque/cash – all subscription fees must be made electronically please.
The club now ask for payment in full at the start of the season (in previous years we have accepted split payments through the season). The club understand everyone’s situation is different and would never wish costs to be a reason for children not to take part in football. Should you be unable to make payment for any reason, please contact either your coach or the club chairman directly to agree an alternative.
Please note the pricing structure for siblings playing for the Club is as follows:
• £130 per season for 1 player
• £210 per season for 2 from the same family
• £260 per season for 3 from the same family
• £310 per season for 4 from the same family
PLEASE USE YOUR TEAM AGE FOLLOWED BY YOUR CHILD’S SURNAME GROUP AS THE PAYMENT REFERENCE, AND ENSURE THAT THE REFERENCE IS CORRECTED IF USED FOR PREVIOUS SEASONS (e.g. U10 SMITH or U10G SMITH for girls’ team)

These activities will be arranged / requested by the relevant team coach / secretary.
Coton Football Club strives to create an inclusive and competitive environment where children can learn and enjoy playing football. We are very proud of the work all of our coaches do to balance the needs of the players and the needs of the team.
Junior teams at Coton Football Club play in three different leagues, all of which are under the umbrella of Cambridgeshire FA:
• The Cambridgeshire Mini Soccer League (up to U11)
• The Cambridge and District Colts League (U12 and above)
• The S-Tech Girls League (all ages)
Age groups up to U11 are officially non-competitive, with no results or league tables published. Age groups U12 and over are competitive. For matches in the Cambridgeshire Mini Soccer League all substitutes must play, and all players must play for a minimum of 15 minutes in each match. For the S-Tech Girls League and the Cambridge and District Colts League there is no requirement for all substitutes to play, and there is no minimum playing time for those who do play.
Notwithstanding the above, coaches will endeavour to be inclusive and ensure that all players registered to play matches at the Club are given the opportunity to play. This does not mean equal playing-time for everybody and the amount of playing time for each player may differ according to the needs of the team. The aim is to strike a balance between team success on the one hand and inclusiveness on the other – which is our attempt to be fair to all of the players. Playing time is a decision for individual coaches who have the best understanding of the needs of their teams.
We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game. This club is supporting The FA’s Respect programme to ensure football can be enjoyed in a safe, positive environment. Play your part and observe The FA’s Respect Codes of Conduct at all times.
