Colden Common FC are delighted to announce a 'partnership' with TAYLOR WIMPEY who have become the Club's major sponsors.

In difficult times for our club, this committment from a National Company will serve to galvanise and inspire Colden Common FC.

The Officials and members of Colden Common FC extend their sincere thanks to TAYLOR WIMPEY.

Having accepted the stigma of relegation - a dubious 'first' for The Club since it commenced it's Hampshire League tenure in 1984 - Colden Common FC are facing up to life in Hampshire League Division One with a positive manner and progressive outlook.

Manager Danny Barker is working long and hard to add to the group of players he already has while also, in harness with the committee, looking to bolster the 'Back Room Boys' and those who run The Club. He is keen, as indeed we all are, that Colden Common FC is soundly based to take on the challenge of season 2016/17.

With that in mind Colden Common have entered a Development Squad (Colden Common Reserves) into the Wyvern Combination League where we will compete in the East Division in 2016/17 with Matt Powell - Coach with Southampton FC - integral in the running of it.

At the end of season Presentation Evening - held at the Rising Sun Public House in Colden Common - there was a positive, almost jubilant mood from players, their partners and the Club management team which augers well for our first campaign in Hampshire Leagues second tier since 1985/86.

As for the awards, pride of place went to Colden's Olduns as our Over 40's won the SDFA Over 40 Division, the trophy for which was presented to the side by Colin Miles, the esteemed and highly regarded SDFA official. Colin attended with his wife and we were all extremely grateful for their presence.

As for Club awards the Vet's Manager, Alan Darling, chose the 'outstanding' NORMAN STEEL as his Player of the Season, while the Players voted almost unanimously for SIMON YEADON; congratulations to both.

There was a final special award for the Vets instigated by Alan and Neil Barker; the 'We Can't Believe He is Still So Good at his Age' award went to IAN NASH. 

As for the 1st Team goalkeeper MAX ROVETTO was manager Danny Barker's pick after what would have been a difficult season for any custodian, but Max continued to grow and improve throughout the campaign. 

The Players selected MATT WARDLAW as the recipient of the Players Player trophy, while the Most Improved award went to ALEX SIMMONS.

The remaining awards saw the Committee Cup presented to Veterans manager ALAN DARLING while the Chairmans Trophy was given to KEN BRADY, Danny's (and prior to that Sam Dixon's) Assistant 1st Team manager.

The Club's premier award, Clubman of the Year, was deservedly presented to SAM DIXON for his huge commitment to CCFC over the past two seasons. The management role was thrust upon him in late 2014 and he rose admirably to the challenge both on and off the park. When he handed in his managerial rein he was more than willing to remain with us (as he does to this day) and offer whatever assistance he could. A man steeped in the values of Colden Common FC since his first appearance on our touchline as a six-year-old.

Talking of longevity it was brilliant to see both Chairman Dave Hadfield and Eric Laversuch receive acknowledgement with long service awards from the Southampton Football Association for their long 'careers' with Colden Common FC.

Common commence training at The Recreation Ground, Main Road, Colden Common on Tuesday June 28th - 7:30pm - and all are welcome to attend.
