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

Senior Match Report
Balrothery FC V Rush Athletic

Balrothery restarted the season at home with a good derby game against Rush Ath.

The first 5 minutes of the game was end to end and it was Rush who drew first blood scoring an easy goal at the front post. The Knights as usual didn’t drop their heads and were level within 5 minutes with a well taken goal by Mr Paul Currivan. It was a handsome goal by two handsome lads 😍, a lovely weighted ball from Karl and a beautiful finish.

After that, Balrothery took control of the game creating chance after chance and that man again, Paul C, got another with a well worked team goal. Between the second and the third Queball pulled off a worldie of a save to keep it 2-1 and we hit them again just before halftime - this time it was the Skipper Keva Cox.

Halftime arrived and we were 3-1 up and it could have been more.

Second half saw Rush start on the front foot causing us a few problems but with the two Italians at the back, John Bonucci Bolger and Alan Chielleni Lynch, we kept them at bay and then Paul popped up again to bag his hat trick. 4-1 ⚽⚽⚽ BOOM 💥.

We were starting to look a little more comfortable but Rush always looked dangerous and got one back which made the last 10 minutes feel like 100 minutes. However, the squad is well used to this type of pressure and with strength in depth, we were able to bring some of the lads on and they were brilliant, helping to settle us down, hold firm and claim the 3 points.

Man of the match: John Bolger

A note from our Chairman as 2021 draws to a close.

"As 2021 comes to an end its important for us to reflect on what has been a very busy year! One that saw the club make massive strides in terms of getting to where we want to be.

Our Junior Knights and their coaches continued to step up on and off the pitch and the success of our academy has resulted in a new under 9's team with 2 new coaches stepping forward to get involved.

The high level of commitment from our under 13s & 14s brought silverware to the club along with league winning positions and we look forward to celebrating properly with everyone involved once restrictions allow.

We ran our 1st ever Summer Camp in August with approx 60 local children taking part. It required a huge amount of organisation and a large number of volunteers but we were so proud to see it go down so well.

The appointment of our Director of Football has been invaluable as Roy Armstrong brings a wealth of knowledge and experience as well as an ear to bounce ideas off for our other coaches.

Following a successful campaign to recruit new players we saw increased numbers join our existing young ladies team which is so inspiring to see and long may it continue.

We were delighted to bring both our ladies and young men and their coaches to the FAI finals to say thank you for all their dedication to the club. A couple of great evenings out I think its fair to say!

We were thrilled to play our part in the "Respect the Ref' campaign, driven very much by our coaches and players.

Our Un19s, Seniors and Over35s are continuing to train and looking forward to 2022 especially our seniors who are flying in their league and blooding some new stars coming up for our 19s.

The over35s cannot wait for league action to begin with new players looking to sign and wanting to be part of a successful 2022.

Our 2nd pitch we hope will be playable in 2022 and thanks to everyone for their support in getting this over the line.

Our fundraising committee have been busy as ever and it is so important for us to thank everyone again who donated or sponsored the club in any way.

We are now proud anchor tenants of the Balrothery Community Centre and we are delighted to finally say we have a home to call our own! Of course, we also continue to play our part in the Community we have members involved with the Balrothery Heritage CLG Committee to help promote and support anything run in the village.

On behalf of the committee I would like to reiterate how grateful we are to all the players, coaches, parents, sponsors and all who supported us through 2021.

May you all have a happy and safe 2022 and we look forward to seeing you all back with us very soon."

Herbie
