Welcome to Hillside Rovers FC

Hillside Rovers is a friendly football club based at Hillside Avenue School, but independent from the school and with many players from other schools in the area.

The club's philosophy is to get as many children involved in football, regardless of their ability, sex or nationality. We are not 'win at all costs' but seek to strike a balance between being a competitive club and also giving opportunity to children of all abilities.

Training sessions are held on Saturday mornings at Hillside School between 9.30am and 11.00am for Under 6's and Under 7's and from 9.30am to 11.30am (sometimes a little earlier) for all other age groups, from September to April.

Because these premises are the school's, we are bound by school rules so can not allow dogs or smoking. no smoking no dogs

Charter Standard logo

Hillside Rovers is an FA Charter Standard Club. This means that we comply with standards laid down by the FA, such as qualified coaches who are CRB checked. We are also a registered charity.

Our year groups are from Year 1 (under sixes) to Year 6 (under 11s). We are run by volunteers who are all parents of players. We are affiliated to St Andrews Football Club, where our players move onto once they are at high school.

If you are interested in joining Hillside Rovers, please ask one of your year group's coaches or click the "Contact us" link above and we'll get back to you very soon.
