Heston Rovers FC is now a registered charity SC042729 - ask us about gift aid.
Heston Rovers FC is a Dumfries based club founded in 1978 to provide football for in the community.The club has continued to grow in recent years and now has over 300 members - with an over 40s section too! We have around 50 adult volunteers who all help to keep the wheels turning at the club.One of our key objectives is to be 'a great place to volunteer' so if you want to get involved in some capacity, come and talk to us.
Membership fees apply and can be found on the website 'notice board'.These are reviewed annually at our AGM and are kept as low as operationally possible with discount options and family benefits.
Heston Rovers was the first Dumfries based club to be awarded the Scottish FA's Quality Mark award standard level in 2007 and upgraded this in Dec 2012 to community club level,the first football club based in Dumfries & Galloway to achieve this level.
The club does not regard itself as a football 'academy' or indeed a 'centre of excellence' - we will leave that to the professional clubs! We are however regarded by the Scottish FA as providing a 'Soccer School' service in a controlled and safe environment.
The main thing is we do try to do is to give kids of all abilities a chance to start out in football. We therefore urge parents, friends and fans to behave properly at matches and to let the coaches coach the kids - this is not a role for touchline parents at our club.
HRFC club has charity status but is managed entirely by volunteers and a hard working management committee who meet on a monthly basis at the clubhouse - we expect not to be abused or indeed insulted by people that we hope to help as a result.
Our AGM is held in Dumfries in May each year and our Club Constitution document can be found on this website under club documents. The minimum age for joining the club was recently reviewed by the management committee and we will now accept applications from children who have started primary school. Please enquire via our website or visit the clubhouse in person on a saturday morning between 10.00am and 11.00am.
Please drive SAFELY and SLOWLY when entering Maryfield and do not park in restricted areas or upset our neighbours and please now use the new access road off Kellwood Road near to electricity substation which we have recently invested in to assisit with traffic flow and road safety - and look out for mobile children!
Check out our new Mission Statement and updated Code of Conduct on this website. Wayne Petrie was recently appointed as our first Positive Coaching Scotland Champion at the club.
