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.

PAYING FOR THE JERSEY
We are delighted that a local New Cumnock based business has chosen to be our sponsor, and it’s a big boost for the club. Whether you have a bulk haulage requirement, require the supply of aggregate materials or an onsite manned tipper vehicle, Iain Watt are the company to meet your needs.
We will upload pictures of our new strips on the social media platforms in the next few weeks, with details on how the strips can be ordered. Kits will be available to order through Tom Robertson at Football 1st Ltd.
Today, we also launch our “Paying for the Jersey” scheme for the 2022/2023 season. Last season, almost all players home and away strips were sponsored, and this is something we hope to replicate again this season. If you haven’t received your strip for last season, or haven’t made arrangements for it to be delivered, can you please message the page. A list of all the “Paying for the Jersey” sponsors for the 2021/2022 season can be viewed HERE
Full details on the PFTJ scheme are on the photo above.

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.
