About Melrose Raiders FC, Melrose Raiders FC was formed to foster a passion for soccer in Melrose by allowing our players to develop the skills necessary to compete at the highest level and realize their full athletic potential. Melrose Raiders FC is being sponsored by FC Boston Azzurri to provide the highest level of player development possible.
