The Board wishes to announce that Kieran Cooper has resigned as Football Operations Manager at Rochedale Rovers after 24 years loyal service to the club.

In years past, and during a time when the licensed club was prospering, a good deal of monetary support flowed from the club to our football operations.  That support allowed us to retain a full-time Football Operations Manager in Kieran, along with a full-time groundsman and indeed this was something that few clubs could boast. However, with the closure of the licensed club, the Board was forced to undertake an examination of the football clubs requirements in terms of staff.  The Board determined that in the absence of financial support from the licensed club, there was an inevitable need to review our football operation.  An unfortunate consequence of this rationalisation has been the resignation of Kieran from his role, effective Wednesday 15th October 2014.

The Board has no intention to appoint anyone in the role in which he acted for all these years. The Board will now draw on the support of our network of volunteers and will look at appointing a part-time administrator who will have the primary responsibility of ensuring that administration issues such as registrations, player fixtures and general club operations are attended to in a timely manner.

No one can deny the influence that Kieran has had on shaping our club and as a mark of our respect for Kieran and to acknowledge his influence on the club, the main grandstand will be named The Kieran Cooper Stand for 2015 and beyond.

Thank you IGA

Today, local IGA Store at Rochedale presented a $2,500 cheque to winners Rochedale Rovers FC as part of the IGA Future Stars promotion.

Rochedale Rovers FC won the grant by encouraging members to shop at their local IGA, and nominating the club online to be eligible to win a share of $150, 000 in club grants. The competition ran for four weeks, every week 15 clubs were drawn, each winning a $2,500 grant. The more people who registered, the more chances the club had at winning their victory was a team effort!

Wendy Evans from the local Drakes IGA Rochedale said, It is so exciting to see a soccer club in our local community win one of the IGA Future Stars grants. As part of the Logan/Rochedale community we know that this money will make a real difference to developing up-and-coming soccer talent. We are proud to support clubs at this grassroots level.

When asked how the club intends to spend the money club spokesperson Kieran Cooper said the money would go towards equipment for Junior Football.

Supporting local communities is at the heart of IGA stores. Nationally, 1400 independent store owners have raised in excess of $70 million to support charities, disaster relief and other worthwhile causes.

IGA Cheque Presentation

Rochedale Rovers announce Scott Macnicol

ScottRochedale Rovers FC are pleased to announce the arrival of Scott MacNicol who has signed for the club to fill the position of Technical Director of Football. Scott will join Mark Cruse as joint First Team Coach. Scotts Junior responsibilities will include implementing Junior Development programs from ages 6 through to seniors.As a player, Scott started his playing career at Rochedale Rovers and went from the age of U6 to our First Team without playing for another club. MacNicol went on to play professional football signing for Dunfermline Athletic FC in the Scottish Premier league. He later played at Brechin City in the Scottish Division 1 before returning to Australia where he joined VPL side South Melbourne. Scott moved back to Queensland and joined Brisbane Strikers in the QSL. More recently he has occupied the position of player coach at Peninsula Power who were very successful during his time there.

When asked about his playing highlights the modest MacNicol mentioned scoring on his debut in the Scottish Premier League against Celtic and playing in the Scottish FA Cup. Other highlights included him becoming a VPL Grand Final Winner with South Melbourne FC, QSL League winner with Brisbane Strikers, BPL Grand Final and Canale Cup winner with Peninsula Power.

Equally impressive is Scotts recognised ability as a coach having been appointed as Brisbane Roar development coach and coaching BPL club Peninsula Power to Grand Final and Canale Cup success. While in Scotland, Scott played with and against some great players and was also coached by former Manchester United and Northern Ireland legend Jimmy Nicol. Scott picked up a strong passion for coaching from Nicol and helped coach on the Dunfermline Athletic Youth Academy while he was a player at the club.

Scott was born into football with his father Brian being a Zone and State coach in Queensland for over 20 years and his brother also playing professionally in the old NSL and in Asia.

Since returning to Australia, Scott has worked as full time coach where he spent three years working as the head coach in Victoria on the Edusport Football Program which was started by former Australian captain Paul Wade. He has worked for Football Queensland on various programs and at different schools and clubs in Brisbane. Scott is well respected within the football community and is looking forward to his new role. He shares our passion and vision to make Rochedale Rovers one of the most successful football clubs in Queensland and we are thrilled to welcome him back to the club to play a part in shaping its future.
