History & Ethos
Layer Colts Youth Football Club was founded in 2003.  We are affiliated to the Colchester & District Football league and the Essex County Girls Football league.  We are a friendly, motivated club with a professional, talent-nurturing approach.

We are an FA Charter Standard Club and also a Children’s University™ Learning Destination.  We also have a Nippers Academy for 4 to 5 year olds.

Layer Colts ethos is about winning but not at all costs.  We endeavour to enable boys and girls to play, personally develop and enjoy football in a safe, quality environment.  The Colts are not just about football but also about making new friends.
