Stanway Pegasus FC is a community-driven football club based in Colchester. We have over 30 teams, including youth, men's, women's, and veteran teams. Our club was founded in 2018, with the aim of providing an inclusive environment for everyone who loves football. We believe in teamwork, dedication, and hard work, and we strive to create a positive impact in our community through football.

Stanway Pegasus Football Club derived from the most successful Sunday League side in Colchester history, AFC Pegasus, who won an incredible 64 honours over a period of 30 years with Paul and Heather Booth at the helm for every one of them. AFC Pegasus in turn was created from Pegasus Youth in 1985 who had a great history in the Colchester Youth League for many years dating back to the early 1970’s with the founder being Mr. Peter Peters.
The transition from Sunday League to Saturday football for the Senior team in 2018 opened the door for the return of the youth set up at the club. With more passion and drive to succeed than ever before, both off and off the pitch, we were ready to start the new era. With various youth and men’s teams in full swing, it clear to see the club’s ‘pathway’ from bottom to top, which is something we as a club pride ourselves on and will lay the foundation of what we will become in the future.

Who are we and what makes us unique?

Stanway Pegasus are an FA Charter Standard Community Club formed in 2018 who have men’s teams that compete in the Essex and Suffolk Border League. We also have a rapidly growing, process-focused youth set-up run by FA-qualified coaches. Every member of the club, no matter the role is clear on the philosophy of the club and contributes to a common goal that is aimed for as a club.

Our Vision – The Pathway

Our vision is to be one of the biggest clubs in Essex that has men’s teams competing at a high level of non-league football who lead the way for the youth set-up. This youth set-up will progress through their age groups starting at U6’s, all the way through to U18’s. This is what we call ‘The Pathway’. Although player development is a key aspect of our philosophy, the aim for the youth is to enjoy playing football for Stanway Pegasus.

How We Play, the “Pegasus way”

At Stanway Pegasus, we have a passion for developing well-rounded football players from the top down. Allowing them to not only develop their footballing ability but other skills such as building friendships and team working.


  1. Play attacking football through possession in a creative manner.

  2. Having the chance to play in a range of positions on the pitch.

  3. All players will receive equal playing time where possible.

  4. Play to win, but not at the expense of 1,2, or 3.

If you share our passion for football and want to be part of a community-driven club, we would love to hear from you. We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, and we offer a supportive and inclusive environment for everyone. Join us today and be part of the Pego family!
