Bourton Rovers FC

With grounds left in a trust to the village by local benefactor George Moore as far back as 1894, Bourton Rovers’ rich footballing heritage spans three centuries.

Long-time members of the Cheltenham League, the North Cotswold side has spent the majority of these years with its two sides competing frenetically on the local football scene.

Despite the Rissington Road ground possessing one of the finest pitches in the area, grass has not been the only surface that the village side has contested matches on over the years! The annual football in the river competition, which dates back to as long as the club has been in existence, is of world repute as a ‘quirky’ British event and the crowds drawn from far and wide regularly make for Rovers' largest attendance of the season.

The club is always progressing to become the local club that everyone can be proud of. With continual development on and off the field of play, including new facilities for football development and community activities.
