ABOUT UPPER DUBLIN SOCCER CLUB
WHO WE ARE
Bringing the World's Game
to Upper Dublin
The origins of the Upper Dublin Soccer Club date back to 1969 at Enfield Middle School (Springfield Township School District) in nearby Oreland, PA. A Renaissance man named Ronnie Tompkins had a passion for soccer. He played as a child growing up in Germantown and wanted to expand the game for local teenagers.

In 1971, Ronnie brought his passion for the game of soccer to Upper Dublin Township. He shared his story with current Club president Bryan Pollack in 2013. "His recruiting techniques were legendary," says Bryan. "My favorite story is about how he was driving through Oreland and saw a young teenager sitting on a curb. His name was John McGlade. He asked John if he ever played soccer. John replied, "What is soccer?" Ronnie persuaded John to play, and he went on to become one of Enfield's first footballers."
Ronnie’s story and influence lives on with those who have had the pleasure of knowing and playing for him. One notable alumni player is current Upper Dublin High School Principal Bob Schultz.
