Troon Academicals

A new incarnation of Troon Academicals (the original name of Troon F.C.) was founded by Richard Henderson in April 2009 as a Saturday morning amateur side with the aim to provide local footballers with a means of playing football, furthering community links, promoting fair play and building bridges between ourselves and other football teams across Scotland.

The club also initially played their home matches at Portland Park, before agreeing to play from nearby Hosiery Park in an attempt to preserve the Portland Park playing surface.
