Football is played in two of the parks in the LCC area.
Redhall Star AFC was formed as an amateur football team in 1971. The youth section - Redhall Star Youth FC - was formed in 2007 with one team of Under 12s (1995s). They were joined by 2000s a couple of years later and both Youth teams played alongside the very successful Saturday and Sunday Amateur teams until 2011 when both amateur teams sadly disbanded. This looked like the end for Redhall Star as the Youth teams were left playing out of a pavilion with no power with other clubs eyeing up Redhall Park and the facilities. However, Redhall Star Youth FC were able reach an agreement with the Council and utility providers and secured the lease on the Park as well as having the Pavilion reconnected. In 2012, with the help of Alan White and Big Hearts, Redhall Star YFC recruited a batch of 2005s and 2006s and the Club began to take shape as we see it today. The Amateurs reformed and spent a couple of seasons at Redhall Park before relocating, largely due to the success of the ever expanding Youth section.
There are a whole range of teams for children to join with matches played in Redhall Park at weekends. Any children wanting to become involved in this should contact them using their sign up form. Volunteers or sponsors should also contact them.
Formed in 1997, we are a progressive Community Football Club based at Dovecot Park, Kingsknowe on the West side of Edinburgh. Dovecot Park has its own Clubrooms with changing facilities, kitchen and a store room. We have one 11 a side pitch and three 7 a side pitches where our teams play their home games. We also now use the Community Facility at Malleny Park, Balerno for training and matches as well as also using local pitches for some 11 a side games and various local primary and high schools for training.
The Club have established strong links with local partners including Play2Learn, Heriot Watt University and the SFA and these links are pivotal to the future of Currie Star. We also have a partnership with Kingsknowe Golf Club to provide opportunities for our players to try golf at competitive rates.
The partnership with the SFA has helped the Club to attain the Quality Mark Community Award. The Quality Mark recognises and rewards high standards of football provision within youth football at grassroots level.
All Currie Star Officials and Coaches are volunteers and all Coaches hold relevant SFA qualifications and have been fully vetted by Disclosure Scotland.
All Currie Star players are given equal opportunities and although they are encouraged to be competitive the emphasis is always on respect and enjoyment.
