Welcome!

On behalf of Balrothery FC, I’d like to thank you for visiting our website and hope you enjoy browsing through it. Our aim is to have information on our club activities readily available; from fixtures and match reports to information on our fundraising events and our sponsors.

Balrothery FC is like most clubs, we are very much community centred and we are proud to represent the village of Balrothery, both on and off the field of play.

As we keep building the club, our focus is on our junior knights teams who keep going from strength to strength, year in year out, with top coaches and fantastic ongoing support from the parents involved in the club.

The over 35s team are still moving those aching muscles week in week out and showing that you are never too old to enjoy life and some friendly competition!

As with every local club, without support from our sponsors at all levels, we would struggle to keep going and we are lucky to have them onboard so a massive thanks to all of them, as well as everyone in the village and beyond who get behind us time and time again.

Thanks and Regards,
Liam Mc Auley (Herbie)
Chairman, Balrothery FC

John Vianney FC 2 vs Balrothery FC 2

We were away to John Viannay Boys this morning the 2nd of August 11am kickoff. They had tip and the game was underway, for the first 15 minutes we were a little bit nervous a few under hit and over hit passes came and went. As the game went on both teams found their feet with chances at both ends, we had shots from Dion, Cian and Aaron that just went wide. We had to make a change on the 35th minute with Darragh coming off and Sam going on. The pace of the game was good from both sides, but on the 40th minute they opened the scoring with a well taken goal, we didn’t drop our heads and Sam went on a run and his shot just went wide. Half came 1-0 to them.

We started the second brightly and got our reward went Cian sent Lee through on goal and he finished well. Our heads were up and we were playing well but unfortunately let them back in to take the lead 2-1 with 30 minutes to go.

Again our heads didn’t drop and we pressed on and got the second through Lee's hard running and nice finish. After that both teams had a few half chances until the ball went across the box and Dion hit the crossbar and a few moments later Fionn had a goal disallowed for off side, after good work from Aaron and Dion. Game finished 2-2. Man of the match was Lee and would like to thank Sam Clancy for togging out for us this morning.

Over 35s
Balrothery 2 5 St.Columbans

Our over 35s took on St.Columbans this morning in Ringcommons and although beaten our lads put in a mighty effort throughout the 90 minutes.
Columbans playing with the wind 1st half piled the pressure on our defence but the lads held firm and a couple of good saves from Bren Mooney in goals kept the scoreline at nil nil.
A Columbans corner whipped in at the back post opened the scoring with a well taken header but our lads kept the heads up and went in at half time 1 down.

Within the 1st few minutes of the 2nd half we equalised through a well taken goal from the busy Zahir and it was game on.......unfortunately though we conceded within 2 minutes to go behind again.
Columbans piled on the pressure and hit 2 cracking goals to go 4-1 up but ye olde knights again kept going and super sub Erol hit a cracking shot to pull one back for Balrothery.
With time ticking down and our lads pushing forward we conceded again with the game finishing 5-2.
Congratulations to Columbans and bestwishes in the rest of their games and thanks to the referee who had a good game.......thanks to all our lads who never gave up.....kept going to the end and although beaten will look forward to our next fixture. #BALROTHERY #BALROTHERYFC #KNIGHTSABU

Over 35s
Balrothery 2 - Stamullen 1

Our over 35s were back in action for the 1st time since the Covid restrictions against Stamullen in Ringcommons and both sides played an entertaining game of football.

Both teams had chances to take the lead but some good goalkeeping and defensive play kept the teams level until Mick Doyle put us one up with a well taken goal midway through the 1st half and we held on to go into halftime with that advantage.

Stamullen came out strong in the 2nd half and quickly pulled it level with a good goal of their own and it was game on.

A few changes and change of formation the knights went on the attack and when the ball fell to the feet of Stuey Kelly he did what he does best and nestled the ball into the back of the net to put us ahead with about 20min to play.

Stamullen pushed hard to get the equaliser but with the Balrothery defence and Bren Mooney in goals nothing was going to be easy and the Knights held on for a good win against a good Stamullen team.

Welldone to all the Knights,the effort today is what we need for the games ahead. Everyone put in a great shift and worked as a team ❤🖤❤🖤

Thanks again to Mel and the Stamullen team for the game and to Referee Alan Whelan for being available to do todays game and had a great game too.
