About The Club
Coggeshall United Football Club was founded in 2017 by former Barnet midfielder Cliff Akurang. Cliff started the club after working at Coggeshall Town, Heybridge Swifts and Braintree Academy. Since the formation of the club, Cliff has worked tirelessly to bring the playing squad up to a high standard, winning the Essex Border League and narrowly missing out on promotion in the 18/19 season against Hashtag United.
We welcome all races/genders/creed at Coggeshall United, we pride ourselves in our behaviour off and on the pitch. Cliff puts his years of experience on the pitch to his advantage.
Cliff also has a brilliant Rapport with several youth teams in and around Braintree and Essex. Some the club’s players have come from Coggeshall Town but mostly they are local boys, who want to do the village proud. One of the clubs best players now plays for Chelmsford City in the National League South another now plays for Hashtag United. Many others have stayed at the club or have came back after being elsewhere to continue the ongoing project at Coggeshall United.

Beer Taster/Turnstile operator/
We are very happy that Kev decided to join us last season. Some of you might have heard of Mr Christmas, he is well known throughout the Braintree area and is a character who always strives for positivity within the club. You will normally see him with a pint in his hand ;).
