DCR 95 Completes Their Club Career 5/15/2013
In May 2007, 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 added a boys team.
On Tuesday, May 14, 2013, 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!
|The 95 team, the first ever DCR team
Derby City Rossoneri (DCR) is a select soccer club based
in Louisville, KY. Our goal is to develop a family friendly environment where players can develop their skills with
experienced coaches and compete against other select teams, while encouraging the development of solid relationships
for the players and not imposing undue strain on the families. Our teams have competed in the Kentucky Select Soccer League (KSSL), Kentucky Premier League (KPL) and
Buckeye Premier League. We also participate in various tournaments within the surrounding states each season.
the Fall of 2007, our founder Dennis Murrell formed the first DCR team from a hand picked group of recreational players.
Since that time we have grown to several teams and have multiple division titles in our leagues and have won or placed in
many tournaments. All of our coaches are licensed by the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) and have both experience
and a passion for the game. We keep the cost low in order to provide an affordable and enjoyable soccer experience for
your daughter. We have grown from that first team, with 16 players, to multiple teams across several age groups.
