The changes to the girls’ football age bandings in Herefordshire to Under 14 and Under 16 has not been to the benefit of everyone. Our current Under 14 girls are a committed and talented group, but were threatened with being split up due to the make-up of the group.
However, thanks to the South Wales Women’s & Girls League (SWWGL), along with the South Wales Football Association, the Herefordshire FA, and the Football Association’s cross-border competition panel, we have been given special dispensation to play an Under 15s team in Wales next season!
That means, from September 2019, we will be the only Herefordshire-based girls team playing competitive 11v11 football at the Under 15 age group.
If your daughter has been left without a team, or would be playing at an unsuitable age group, due to...

Ross Juniors Football entered an under 12 girls side into the Gloucester County Girls League back in September. With long journeys to Swindon for games and matches versus clubs such as Cheltenham Town and Gloucester City it was always going to be a stern test. Though after finishing second the previous year expectations were high and the previous squad were joined by 4 new players Beatrice, Sophia, Libby and Fliss.
The season started brilliantly with great performances and scorelines for the girls. Bel managed 5 hatricks in the first 5 games! Over the whole season the girls played 12 matches and finished with a record of 10 wins and 2 draws. Hannah in goal when called on was outstanding and the defence of Lara, Izzy, Millie, Amy, Molly and Meg were misery conceding just 6 goals in 12 games....
After running a hugely success training camp in November half term, Bristol City Women's manager Tanya Oxtoby is returning to Ross-on-Wye in February half term.
On February 18th Tanya, whose Bristol side have earned many admirers for their improvements in this season's WSL, will bring her top class coaching back to Ross-on-Wye giving another chance for young people to experience what it's like the women's professional game.
Our youngest section have been training hard in anticipation of this moment with many of the players being with the club since the age of 4. Seven of our squad were thrilled to travel across to Bartestree to have their first experience of a competitive match against another club. The game was brilliant with moments of great skills and technique alongside enthusiasm and fun. The exam was Lucy, Hector, Oscar, Arthur, George, Harry and Alfie. The managers for the day Doug and Tony were thrilled with the performance and seeing how much enjoyment the team had. Thank you to Bartestree for hosting and being great opponents.
Our tournament is now 70% full already. With teams entering from all across the region it is promising to be a real celebration of grassroots football. Teams have entered from Pontypool, Bristol, Solihull, Tipton, Cardiff, Hereford and Birmingham.
With camping on site for a charitable donation of £5 a tent why not join us and celebrate your end of season and the start of the tournament season.
Open to boys and girls teams from U8 to u12 its a competitive tournament. There will be stalls, food and bar too.
Ross Under 17 footballers have had an encouraging half season in the Tudors Building Supplies 18/19 League.
Coaches Mark and Tony Fletcher have been working with many of the lads in this team for nearly a decade, bringing the group from U8s through U15s, to two seasons of U17 football. The strategy is to use 2018/19 to learn and grow, playing against some teams where the majority of the opposition could be a year older, a year stronger and a year more “street wise”. This will hopefully reap reward in the 19/20 season.
Ross started the season well in September, putting in a strong performance on the sloping pitch at Ledbury, leading twice before running out of steam to go down 3-2.
Captain Joe Thomas started the campaign well, scoring in that opening local derby and, as usual, is easily...
