Welcome to Glenafton Athletic Football Club.


We were formed in 1930 and played at Connel Park, in the heart of the miners’ rows, in the parish of New Cumnock, Ayrshire, Scotland.  We were members of the Scottish Junior Football Association (S.J.F.A.). and our colours were white and black.

In 1960 we moved to the purpose built Loch Park  close to where the River Afton flows gently into the River Nith at the heart of town of New Cumnock. At that time we change our colours to red and white. We are known as ‘The Glens’ or ‘The Afton’.

In April 2020 we joined the West of Scotland Football (WoSFL) whilst retaining our membership of the SJFA.

Mark Roberts, Ryan Stevenson and Alan Kerr

Glenafton Athletic are delighted to announce that manager Ryan Stevenson and assistant manager Mark Roberts have agreed a two year contract that will keep them at the Glens until the end of the 2023/2024 season. Popular coach Alan Kerr (pictured) will also be staying on at the Glens.

Although their immediate priority and focus is on keeping the club in the West of Scotland Premier League, Ryan and Mark are already making plans for the upcoming season and we will announce player re-signings and any player signings in the near future.

We are delighted with the results and performances that we have achieved so far under Ryan and Mark, and we believe this is going to be an exciting period for the Glens. We are also working hard behind the scenes to make the Glens a licensed club, and we expect to have a further announcement on this in the near future.

Glenafton Athletic Members Club

Glenafton Athletic are delighted to announce the formation of the new “Glenafton Athletic Members Club”. This has been designed to help raise the valuable funds required as we have now left the Juniors to begin a new chapter in our history in the Seniors as part of the Pyramid system.

In our 90 years in the Junior ranks we have enjoyed some great days, none more so than our two Scottish Junior Cup winning seasons. Our aim is to ensure this level of success is sustained in New Cumnock and give you a Glenafton team that will do our wee village proud. We hope you can play your part in making this happen. Quite simply, we need the backing of the people of New Cumnock (and beyond) to help us in the new set up. Your donation of £10 per month will help us provide a firm footing as we continue our efforts to obtain a full club licence, which we require to fully establish ourselves to the senior ranks.
