Threave Rovers F.C.

Threave Rovers Football Club is a football club from Castle Douglas in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. The club plays its home games at Meadow Park, in Castle Douglas.

They played for many years in the South of Scotland Football League before moving to the East of Scotland Football League in 1998-99 (while simultaneously running a reserve team in the South of Scotland League). They performed well in the more difficult East of Scotland League, finishing third in the 2003-04 season, before quitting that league and deciding to concentrate their full efforts on the South of Scotland League. They cited the financial burden of traveling Eastwards constantly as the reason for this decision. Despite it being generally held that the South League is the poorer of the two competitions they finished fourth in their first season back in the South despite having finished third the season before in the East. This was primarily down to losing their top players to Annan Athletic and Dalbeattie Star who did not want to play at a lesser level of football.

In the 2007-2008 Scottish Cup, they produced one of the biggest shocks when the club defeated Stenhousemuir 1-0 in the second round. [BBC Sport, [http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/scot_cups/7065626.stm Joy for Threave in Scottish Cup] ] Their reward was a home tie with Raith Rovers in the third round, but Threave lost the game 0-5.
