2003 Kids Required

Posted: August 2, 2011 in All Articles

Mid Calder Colts 2003’s currently have 2 or 3 spaces available so if you have a child born in 2003 and they are interested in joining a football team, then this could be the chance. The team train on a Monday evening, 6-7pm at Mid Calder Primary School and will move up to East Calder sports centre (same times) when the dark nights kick in.

The 2003’s will look to join the West Lothian Soccer Sevens league in March 2012, so if you do know of anyone who can fill these gaps, please do get in touch by dropping us an email

Thanks!

Gala Challenge Winners 2011

Posted: July 26, 2011 in All Articles

The annual gala challenge between Mid and East Calder took place on Thursday June 9th in East Calder. Having won the trophy for the last 2 years, Mid Calder were looking for a hat-trick and duly delivered, winning the evening by 4 matches to 2.

The evening opened with a friendly bounce game between the respective soccer school kids, which was a well played high scoring affair and it was then onto the main event with the 2001’s locking horns. A very competitive game was won by Mid Calder and they doubled the advantage when the 2000’s comfortably won their game.

Meanwhile on the 11s park, the Mid Calder 98’s were in the process of winning their match giving Mid Calder a 3-0 lead from the opening 3 games. Next up was the 96’s who beat East Calder 97’s –  a result which ensured the cup was won for another year.

The 99s lost – somewhat controversially – by a score of 5-3 to get East Calder on the board and the final game saw East Calder 94’s take victory over the Mid Calder 95’s by a single goal to end the evening off.

Jack Cannon from the Mid Calder soccer school lifted the trophy to wrap up another successful challenge event.

Oakbank of Calderwood

Posted: July 26, 2011 in All Articles

Mid Calder Colts have now obtained access to a new park and facilities at Oakbank.

Oakbank of Calderwood Football Club disbanded in June 2010 and the outgoing committee of Dougie Hunter, Brian Davidson and Ian McLeod arranged a meeting on 1/7/10 with us, East Calder Colts, East Calder Amateurs and Oakbank residents.

It was agreed at the meeting that all teams above would share these facilities along with local residents of Oakbank who will use the facilities for occasional charity games.

The Colts would like to say a big thank you to Oakbank’s committee for this opportunity.

Parks and facilities is one of the major issues the Colts have with the rapid growth of the club over the last 7 years where we now have four 11 a’side teams and four 7 a-side teams plus a soccer school. The use of Oakbank will help alleviate that problem.

Colts score on fair play

Posted: July 26, 2011 in All Articles

Mid Calder Colts 2000 attended the Caledonian Youth Club Football Festival on Sunday June 20th in Prestwick and did the club proud with an excellent display from all concerned. After an overnight stay, the boys played 5 games, winning 3, drawing 2 and scoring seven goals in the process while only conceeding one.

As well putting on a good footballing display, all the games played were marked for fair play and out of the 20 participating teams from all over Scotland, the Mid Calder boys (as well as coaches and parents) were chosen for their sporting behaviour.

In keeping with the fair play winning theme, the WLYAFC also recognised the Mid Calder 1995s and 1994s for their displays by awarding those teams the fair play award for their respective leagues.

Well done to all involved
