COTHAM TIGERS FOOTBALL CLUB
Cotham Tigers is an inclusive youth football club for both girls and boys based at Stoke Lodge Playing Fields in Stoke Bishop, Bristol. Our aim is to give all players plenty of game time to ensure they have a great experience as well as learning new skills.
Started in 2016 by a few parents from Cotham Gardens (Colstons) and Dolphin Primary schools, Cotham Tigers has grown into an England Football Accredited club with players from a number of local schools. We now have over 200 players from Reception school age to Year 9 and we are continuing to grow.
Our teams play in the Bristol Friendly 'League’, the Bristol Saturday Youth League (BSYL) and in the Avon Youth league. We play matches against other local youth teams.

The Stoke Lodge playing fields are located off Parry’s Lane in Stoke Bishop.
There is a perimeter fence around the playing fields, with the main gate (Pedestrian gate 2) closest to our playing area accessible from Parry’s Lane. On-street parking is available on Druid Stoke Avenue, Druid Hill, Parry’s Grove, West Dene, South Dene and Cross Elms Lane.
Please respect local residents and do NOT park on or across driveways, dropped kerbs and pavements. Parking is not allowed at the Stoke Lodge building (Bristol City Council – Adult Learning Centre) car park.
During matches and training there are toilets available in the mower shed (white building). Please do not allow children into the mower shed unsupervised, as there is dangerous equipment inside. Also, beware that Ebenezer Lane, off Cross Elms Lane, provides vehicular access to several houses despite looking like a footpath, so don’t park there and don’t allow your kids to run across it in case a car should be pulling out.
