Rossvale FC was founded in 1976, by John Grey. The name was taken from Rossie Crescent and Vale Walk. The Clubs colours of red/yellow and black were specifically chosen for two main reasons, first John Grey was a Partick Thistle supporter, secondly, and sadly, it was done to stay away from blue and green, to avoid any associations with Celtic or Rangers. This is followed through at training, where the players wear training kits given out by the Club to stop them wearing strips that could cause conflict. This also prevents situations where players who do not have a great deal of money to dress the same as those who do. The ethos of the Club is that the players are there to play for Rossvale, and to actively promote the mixing of young people from different backgrounds.
Rossvale currently have approximately 600 players – boys, girls and adults. If you play football and need a club that can help you to develop your skills, then you should contact us.
