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.

The South Region Challenge Cup Competition Committee have determined that for the 2021/22 Competition the first two rounds will be of a regionalised format. The decision was made in an attempt to minimise travelling distances in the current pandemic circumstances. Eligible clubs in EoSFL, SLFL, SSFL & WoSFL have been placed into four regionalised groups, agreed by the Competition Committee.

Glenafton Athletic is one of forty clubs in the South-West zone.

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.
