Rossington Main FC

Rossington Main FC

In 1998, after lengthy negotiations Rossington Main merged with near neighbours Rossington FC, who had been competing in the Central Midlands Supreme Division. Rossington FC had begun life in the 1970s, as Station FC, playing on the school field at the nearby Tornedale School and changing in a small building at the rear of The Station pub. The club progressed up through local Sunday leagues and Saturday football in the Doncaster area and in 1986 moved to a new home on Rossington Welfare and joined the Central Midlands League.

Rossington FC grew and in the 1990s operated four sides, alongside the 1st team and reserves in the Central Midlands League were a successful Sunday League side and an under-18s team which competed in the Autoglass Sheffield League winning the Knockout Cup in 1992. Despite growth and development on the field the club were unable to match the expectations of the Central Midlands League financially, and in 1998 they elected to leave the league; facilitating the merger with Rossington Main.

Following the merger the club originally operated four sides, accompanying the 1st team and the reserves were an over-35's team who competed in the WRAGG Sheffield & Hallamshire League and an under-18s side competing in the Doncaster & District Boys League.

The Club now operates three sides. The aims of the new Club are to provide a unified approach to football in the Village so that there is a natural progression in the development of the game. The Club intends to sustain competition at the highest possible and affordable level, to continue to provide excellent facilities for both players and spectators, to give opportunity for local players to progress, to reward loyalty and to establish a youth policy that allows and caters for the progression of football in the community of Rossington.

During the summer of 2003, a partnership between Rossington Boys, Rossington Girls and ourselves was established. This was to enable all, under the Rossington Community Football Partnership banner, to have a better chance to receive funding for future projects.
