About Us

Founded in 2010 by Willie Smith and Scott Robertson, Realgrassroots are on a mission to protect children from exploitation in youth football. In 2010, Realgrassroots launched the petition PE1319 “Improving Youth Football in Scotland” in the Scottish Parliament and it is still ongoing. We are fighting to ensure that all childrens’ rights are upheld and respected.

Our main prioritises are:

  1. To abolish the three-year rolling registration of age groups 15 to 17.
  2. To abolish compensation payments being owed in any transfer where the player is a child (under 16).

If you are a player or a parent and you would like some free advice on your rights, then get in touch! We would be happy to help you.
