About us...


Glenrothes Strollers FC was founded as a youth football club.

Continued as a very successful youth football club for many years. With 3 or 4 teams at different age groups and winning the Scottish Cup on several occasions.


Setup ‘Young Strollers’ as part of the club, to get involved with 7-a-side development football.


Agreed long term development plan to grow the club for the benefit of the wider community.


Consolidated all disparate teams to one site, renting Over Stenton Park in Glenrothes from Fife Council. Laid out 9 new football pitches across 16 acres, built car park, fencing, storage facilities and portacabin changing facilities. Purchased grass cutting and grounds maintenance equipment.

Acheived SFA ‘Quality Mark’ Status. Added an adult amateur team to our growing numbers.


Registered with OSCR as a charity. Fife Council spent £150,000.00 on improving the drainage across all of the park, this has allowed much greater use over the season.


Signed a long term lease on Over Stenton Park, this means that we are now in a position to put up a building. Installed floodlights, pitch barriers and subs shelters, funded by Sports Scotland.

Since 2008 we have grown the numbers of children / youths involved with the club from 200 to over 400.

Our club has been recognised by the SFA, Sports Scotland and the Scottish Government as really being a part of our local community.

Our volunteer coaches work alongside Fife Council Active Schools coordinators and give up their own time to deliver PE football sessions around all of the primary and secondary schools in our area.


Started our Pan Disability section. Initially with a group of eight 15 – 17 year olds. Since then this has grown rapidly and now has around 40+ players from 14 year old up to 28 year old.

We plan to continue growing this section by attracting more younger players aged 12 years – 15 years old. We also plan to add a further group of Cerebral Palsy players in the near future.

We started up ‘School Holiday Football Camps’, offering low cost childcare to parents and carers. We deliver full day football based activities in a safe and fun environment.


Delivered a project with Fife Council Social Work and Justice dept. We are now a provider for their Community Payback activities. So carefully selected offenders can now complete their ‘Community Payback’ hours with our club. Working alongside experienced volunteer coaches, training youngsters in football skills and fitness programmes. This is an amazing opportunity for offenders. It can be life transforming.

Grown our Pan Disability football activities to offer ‘Better Breaks’ to the groups carers/parents. This is done by extending the activities that we offer the group to include full days out or even weekends away.


The success of our Pan Disability section has inspired another charity to get involved. ‘Shared Care Scotland’. They are now funding us to take our model out to other Community Football Clubs in Fife, Tayside and Angus, and help the volunteers there to develop Learning Disabled groups within their communities. We also started running a ‘Sport Works’ project, where we take in 20 long term unemployed young adults and run a 12 week project that gives them support and skills to help them find work.

We have also extended our ‘School Holidays Football Camp’. It now runs in weeks covering Easter, Summer and October holidays.


Thanks to the ongoing support of Shared Care Scotland with their Better Breaks funding, we have rolled our Pan Disability football model out across the Scotland East Region and we are now supporting an additional 10 community groups in offering structured, fun football activities.


We finally secured all of the required funding for our Community Sports Pavilion, £750,000.00

Construction started in Summer 2016 with our selected construction partner, Lomond Group. This was completed in December 2016 and opened in January 2017.

This now gives us a much better environment to offer our services going forward.
