About the club

History

Potton United Youth FC are a youth football club from the small market town of Potton in Bedfordshire. The club changed its name from Potton Colts FC in June 2020 to represent our close ties with Potton United FC.

Established in 1980 and now entering its 40th season, the club provides football for local boys and girls from age 6 through to 17 years old. More details are available in the "Team pages".

The club is run by an enthusiastic set of volunteers whose only aim is to provide the opportunity for local children to participate in Football. We are a family club and most of these volunteers either have, or have had, children in the Potton United Youth teams.

Potton United Youth is an FA Charter Standard Club and our Club has won Best Chartered standard Club Award for Bedfordshire 3 times & for East Anglia 2 times. The FA Charter kitemark is awarded to clubs that are well run, sustainable, which place child protection, quality coaching and safety paramount.
