Dunbar United Colts are ‘SUPER’ excited to be announcing a new partnership project with the Scottish FA called Disney Playmakers.

This programme is targeted for Girls only from the ages 5-8 who are interested in participating within football.

The programme is aimed at providing girls an introduction to football through the use of storytelling in which ables the girls to pick up day to day life skills as well as providing them an opportunity to create new friendships. It allows them to use there imagination and create a environment where they feel safe, secure as well as taking part in physical activity whilst in a imagery universe! 😀☺️

Through this programme, it will allow the girls who want to be involved within football the chance to enter the Dunbar United Colts girls pathway.

We are now bigger than ever having Girls age groups at

-Soccer Schools
– U7s
– U9s
– U11s
– U13s
– U15s

The girls section at the club is rapidly increasing with more and more girls playing every year which is absolutely ‘SUPER’ to see. 😀

We are really looking forward to delivering this project to you.

Apologies for the short notice, please note we’ve had to put back the AGM by one week following a family bereavement for one of the Executive committee members.

The AGM will now take place on Wednesday 30 September from 7.30-9pm by Microsoft Teams. The link and dial in details remain at the foot of this meeting invitation.

I would be grateful if all coaches who intend to participate could email me (if you haven’t already) at secretary@dunbarcolts.com to confirm your attendance so we have an idea of numbers. We’ll be putting this update on the Facebook page during the course of today, but please do share the information with other coaches and any parents/ guardians who may have expressed an interest in joining us at the AGM.

With the progressive return to football, we are asking parents and carers to please restart the payment of monthly fees from 1st September 2020. This should be at the previous level but please note that they are under review for a number of reasons including additional sanitisation costs and the possible incorporation of the membership fee (to be spread over 12 months). Payment of fees was suspended several months ago although it is worth noting that the club continued to make payments to support Hallhill (in conjunction with other local clubs) and ongoing growth and development contract costs.

Parents/carers suffering financial distress should contact the head coach for the relevant age group or the growth and development officer if they are experiencing difficulties paying the monthly fees. The Club will treat this confidentially and aim to provide as much help as possible subject to individual circumstances and other appropriate factors.

Also, please be aware that we shall be holding the club’s AGM in the next month or so and are hoping that more people volunteer, in addition to coaches, to help the running of the club. It is not possible to ask the small group of volunteers to continue their current levels of effort. We welcome assistance, not just coaching, at all levels and invite parents and carers to get in touch (please email info@dunbarcolts.com) and offer their help.

Inaugural Newsletter

Message from the Committee
In these unusual times, we want to issue a newsletter to keep you up to date with all things football. The Committee have continued to meet on a monthly basis, via Skype call. We committed as a club to paying our quarterly Hallhill fees with the hope that we return to maintained pitches and a sustainable sports centre. The facility remains closed and as such, we are still unable to train. The facility are working with each user group and East Lothian Council to work on risk assessments with a view to how it can open and operate in the short to medium term.

The SFA Joint Response Group meet fortnightly – apologies if you feel you have not been in the loop here, the thinking being that you can assume that there has been very little change unless we tell you or you will have access to the same information as the committee.
