Cottenham U7s Red team was formed in 2017 at the same time as Cottenham U7s Black Team. The traditional red and black colours of Cottenham provided the inspiration for the highly imaginative team names! The Reds and Blacks very much train and work together but simply due to numbers there are 2 teams for the age group in League matches. We share training and do look to mix in other friendlies and tournaments, where possible.
Our main focus is to develop a fun and friendly environment to enable development the player’s footballing skills, both individually and as a team. Promoting enjoyment of football at all abilities and giving everyone a chance is a key principle!
Our U7 team is kindly sponsored by ST1 Consulting.
Lead Coach : Steve Sawyer

Steve has completed his FA Level 1 Coaching, First Aid Level 1 and Safeguarding Children qualifications. Ed has completed the Safeguarding and First Aid courses and hopes to complete Level 1 soon.
