History

Late in 1960 the formation of Rovers was underway. The first game of soccer in which Rovers participated was against Tumbulgum Rangers at Tumbulgum before the 1961 season had commenced.

The Rovers club conducted the first ladies game in the district in the late sixties. It was played at Oakes Oval as a novelty attraction before a junior cup-tie. Most mums played the game in the right spirit. The fact that some of the girls played with their aprons still on attested to the fact that the game was played as a friendly fixture. Richmond Rovers women officially began in 1974.

In the early sixties the Lismore Soccer Association catered for juniors in the Under 10 Years division upwards, however Rovers Club requested that they provide football for boys under 8 years. This was rejected, however permission was given to Rovers Club to conduct an Under 8 Division and this was duly commenced. With the help of Bill Onslow who officiated as referee, an Under 8 division was under way. The following season each club was asked to adopt one of the six teams and Rovers claimed Pigeons and Swallows.
