St Roch's Football Club is a Scottish football club, based in Royston Road, Glasgow. Nicknamed "the Candy Rock", they were formed in 1920 and play at James McGrory Park. They currently compete in the West of Scotland League First Division. They wear green and white strips.

St Roch's was the first club of Jimmy McGrory, the British record goalscorer with 550 goals. McGrory, who grew up in the Garngad area where the club originated, began playing for them aged just 11. After helping the club win the Scottish Junior Cup in 1922, scoring in the final, he joined Celtic the following season.[1][2]
