DCR 95 Completes Their Club Career 2013-05-15
Five years ago, almost to the day, a group of players and parents from Jtown Youth Soccer faced
a choice. After years of playing together, they could either (a) tryout for different select clubs, ending their friendships
or (b) stay together and form their own select team. They didn’t know if they would be able to compete at a higher
level but they knew they had coaches who had knowledge and a passion for the game (thank you Ben and Stu!) and that they had
teammates they loved. That was the beginning of Derby City Rossoneri. The players from that first team would improve
dramatically over the next five years. In addition, they began a new club dedicated for girls – one that now has
10 teams and well over 130 players! On Tuesday, May 14, that first team played its last competitive game.
This is their photograph from that last game, including some of the original Jtown players: Aubrey, Alex, Sara, Bronte,
Hannah, Christina and Cayla, as well as the players who have become their friends: April, Lexi, Sarah D., and Hope.
This may have been their last match but this is a group that will always be remembered for their firsts!

Congratulations to both teams on their accomplishments.

play through two overtimes before clinching
the title in PKs and grabbing the Championship trophy. The injury depleted
99s having only one sub in their title game fought valiantly and earned the Finalist trophy for their division. The
03s played a four
game round robin and came away with well deserved participation medals. The 00s competed well
in their games and won their first tournament game of the season to leave Indy on a positive note.

DCR Moves To Fern Creek
Derby City Rossoneri is excited to announce our
affiliation with Fern Creek Optimist Soccer. This affiliation should be beneficial for both clubs! Fern Creek has consistently
been one of the most successful recreational soccer programs in the Louisville area and the KYSA. DCR, which only has girls'
teams, is the fastest growing select club in the area, starting with one team five years ago and having now expanded to as
many as 10 teams and 140 players next year. Both clubs strive to keep youth soccer fun, instructive and family-oriented.
DCR will be now be practicing and playing matches at the Fern Creek facilities located at 8921
Smith Lane off of Johnson School Road in Fern Creek. The soccer complex is already one of the best in the region and we look
forward to working with Fern Creek to even further improve and expand the facility. We view this as a partnership which will
benefit the Louisville soccer community.
