CWE Solutions recognises the value of sport in a child’s future. In 2011 CWE Managing Director, Doug Gilbertson, was appointed Director of Youth Football and was instrumental in creating the Cobham Colts Youth teams under the sponsorship of CWE Solutions.
CWE Solutions’s sponsorship funds the Kit and professional coaching for the team, as well as ensuring the facilities are properly maintained.
Under Doug’s guidance the team has grown from one team to four teams with two age groups – Astros and Jets, Under 8′s and Under 10′s, and with its continued success Cobham Colts Youth is projected to grow to eight teams and four age groups by 2014.
Following the guidelines set out by the FA, Cobham Football League will shortly achieve its FA Standard Charter status. As well, the procedures and structures necessary are already in place which should ensure Community Club status in 2014. Achieving Community Club status will allow the team the opportunity to apply for the necessary funding to continue to expand and ultimately to build a new clubhouse with astroturf.
