East Belfast Tournament

Our First Kickers & under 8’s will start back training in September, but in the run-up to that, Rossglass took two under 6 teams to East Belfast’s football festival at Inverary Park.

After all the good weather the rain poured down on Sunday morning but that didn’t dampen the spirits of the young Rossglass boys and girls. They played some amazing football with Tom Kelly bagging 4 great goals in one game for our juniors. Tom has a left foot that’s deadly in front of goal. For the senior team, Se Tumelty displayed once again that he’s a fox in the box with some great poaching and his aeroplane celebration isn’t too bad either. We had to close the gates to stop him reaching Belfast City airport.

Our juniors eventually went down in the semi-finals to a very good Carrick Rangers team with Daire Tumelty bringing off some great saves but the seniors brought home a trophy beating Dungoyne 1-0 in a very tense final.  Keeley McCullough had another fantastic display at the back and captained the boys to victory. Well done to all the players, Danny McGarrity the winning coach and to all the parents who came and supported on a very damp day.

Rossglass County Inaugural Football Tournament:

This Saturday, 4th August from 10:30am until 2pm, Rossglass County will be holding their inaugural Football Tournament and Charity Fun Day at the Red High 4G pitches in Downpatrick. The Tournament will feature 24 teams from all over Northern Ireland competing in two sections, Under 6 (First Kickers) and Under 8’s. As well as local teams Irish league sides Crusaders and Glentoran will be bringing teams. We hope as many of you as possible will come out and support our boys and girls on the day and we can pick up another trophy!

Club Merchandise now on Sale

Posted by

The Club Shop is now open for a limited time selling the new range of merchandise for the coming season. 

Rossglass County F.C has teamed up with Klubfunder and German sports manufacturer Ulhsport to provide this new range of merchandise.  As part of the deal, each year, Rossglass will receive training packs which include balls, cones, bibs etc, vital equipment for our players’ development.

Uhlsport you may have noticed were the kit manufacturer for Tunisia at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. This year we have introduced money saving “Academy Packs” that include most of our popular items. These packs are great for our players attending training sessions, matches and tournaments. Many of our tops can also be personalised with initials, to help with identification especially for the younger ones who may mislay their kit after training.

As well as the usual clothing items we have also introduced new 30l and 50l kit bags, footballs that would make great Christmas presents and hats and scarves to keep our young football stars wrapped up cosy in winter. We think the new gear looks great, it feels good and it will make sure our men, boys and girls are turned out in tip-top shape.

It’s important to stress that unlike the English Premiership football clubs our merchandise is not a fundraiser for the club, in fact, it is subsidised so that we can bring good quality items to our players and members at a reasonable cost.

Please have a browse through our shop and hopefully, you will find something you will like and be proud to wear as a member of Rossglass County F.C.

Register for Membership of Rossglass County

Posted by

Membership of Rossglass County for the coming season is now open and we would ask all old players and new ones to register as soon as possible. In the past, we have relied on players and parents filling in copious amounts of paper forms but we have now introduced onto our new website online membership registration.

This has proved quite timely as the Irish Football Association which we are affiliated to, has also moved to online registration and we are compelled to adopt their system.  We hope that this will make it easier for everyone to get their membership up to date as soon as possible.

Membership is open to all from the age of 5, subject to acceptance/ approval of an application by the Steering Committee. Our annual membership fees have been set at a very modest level and one of the cheapest in County Down to ensure that cost is no obstacle to membership and football is open to all.

Cost for a Junior member – First Kickers to Under 17 level:                  £15

Senior Players:                                                                                                                    £30

The club sets the fees in accordance with what we are charged by outside bodies which include affiliations, insurance, council fees for matches and referee fees. The fees, however, do not cover the full cost of running Rossglass County and providing our high standard of coaching and football opportunities to you and your child.

Please remember that for insurance purposes, membership registration must be completed prior to participation in a training session, match or club event.

You can register now on our website right here.
