In this paper the results of matching the RAdial Velocity Experiment (RAVE), a spectroscopic Southern hemisphere survey (9<IDENIS<12), and XMM-Newton Serendipitous Source Catalogue (3XMM) are presented. The latest data releases of RAVE and XMM were matched and a X-ray RAVE catalogue of 1071 stars was obtained. Then the catalogue was checked for possible Gould Belt (GB) members. We obtained a subsample of 10 stars that meet the GB membership criteria. This subsample and GB member candidates were tested photometrically and kinematically. Among the members there are two BY Dra type variables, an NGC2451 open cluster member, a high proper motion star. The rest are regular main sequence stars. The members have very low velocity dispersions which lead us to think that the members belong in a single structure. We also found out that a kinematical GB membership test might be possible to derive given a large enough GB member sample as they fit in a narrow interval in space velocity diagrams.
