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

We are pleased to advise that 2023 memberships will be collected via ClubForce, link below.

We are conscious that this is an expensive time of year and bills are only going one way so we will not be increasing the membership rate this year, it will stay at €100. We have also made the hoodie optional and opting out of receiving a hoodie reduces the membership further to €70.

We hope this helps to keep the costs more manageable for you all. We would ask that memberships are paid by Sun 16th Oct as players will not be insured without being members and cannot play without insurance.

U9’s Match Report
Balrothery V Howth Celtic.

Our first home game of the season we saw a capacity crowd gather to watch our young Knights take on Howth.

Both our teams again came flying out the blocks and they were pumped up and ready to do the badge and the team proud.

We’ve been putting a lot of work in on our shape and embedding the retreat line in training and the lads n lassie executed 100% to a player.

We witnessed some brilliant goal keeping, solid defending. The passing and link up play is really coming on and the hunger in front of goal was clinical at times.

In the end we put in another strong performance winning all 4 of our matches for the second week in row.

Back at it on the training ground tomorrow and a big thanks to all the support from the parents

Hugely proud coaches today (as always) and C’mon the Knights 💪

U10 Black Match Report
Malahide V Balrothery

On a blustery and quite chilly afternoon the young Knights travelled to take on Malahide for their first ever away league game. Balrothery played into a brisk breeze in the first half against a well organised and tough tackling Malahide side.

The Knights created a plethora of goalscoring opportunities, keeping Malahide pinned back into their own half. Although the Knights peppered the Malahide goal with shot after shot the deadlock was not broken. Incredulously the first half finished 0-0.

As the say, "football is a game of two halves", and while the first half was a stalemate, the 2nd proved to be anything but.
From the 2nd half tip off the young Knights closed down their opponents at every opportunity, from 1 to 7, the boys harried and pressed their opponents.The incessant pressure crescendoed in the ball being swept across the Malahide box from the left wing. Áron Baker pounced at the back post and mustered up a sublime backheeled finish to finally break the Malahide resistance. The relief was palpable.

The young Knights sensed that this was their opportunity to impose themselves on the opposition and used the breakthroughs as the catalyst for some outstanding football.

1-0, quickly turned to 2-0, then 3-0 , then 4-0, with AJ Murphy driving the team on from centre midfield in a lung busting display.

All credit to Malahide, who staged a mini revival, scoring 2 counter attacking goals, both really well taken.
This would normally be "Squeaky bum time", however both coaches now know that the these boys are a resiliant bunch, who take their learnings from previous games and from training sessions. The boys quickly re-established their dominance in midfield and attacking down both wings.

Daniel Brown, who recovered from a robust Malahide challenge, dusted himself off and rounded off a largely dominant and assured display. Final score 5-2.

This week's Person of the Match was AJ Murphy, who from the off, lead by example and ran himself into the ground.

This Team have improved and developed beyond even Darragh and Graham's high expectations and the boys have done both Coaches, and we are sure their parent(s), extremely proud with their 2nd league win in two League games.

Some of the build up play, passing and attacking play was very impressive today, as was the resilience and character shown when questions were being asked by the opposition.

Roll on next week's game.

U11B Match Report
St Ita’s AFC 1 - 12 Balrothery FC Red

A big result and great display down in Portrane from our young knights.

After last week's defeat to Rivervalley, the lads wanted to prove a point. Dylan scored first. Soon after St. Itas scored the equaliser. James Richardson stepped up with a screamer to make it 1-2.

Dylan's second and one from Josh made it 1- 4 at the break. Cian Richardson came on for the second half to score 4 goals, what an impact from the bench. Josh got his hat-trick, James scored again to make it 1-11. Seb playing superbly in right back wasn't to be left out scoring with a sublime finish.

Player of the match could have gone to any of the boys. Alas the team voted for James Richardson. Well done to James and all the boys today great reaction to last week's result.⚽⚽
