Roehampton Rangers Football Club (RRFC) was founded in 2008. It has established London kids’ football teams in all age groups. There are currently 4 squads of boys covering the age groups of Under 11 to Under 15. Between all different squads there are over 70 boys registered with the club.

My son’s under 9 team is enjoying the training and the championship a lot.

RRFC  is currently recruiting talented Young Football Players (boys and girls) interested in joining the teams and playing in the local championships. It is great fun for the kids who can learn social skills on top of a brilliant sport.

RRFC is affiliated to the Surrey FA www.surreyfa.co.uk and is a member of the Surrey Youth League www.wsyl.org.uk
