Notes:
Glenafton Athletic were formed in 1930 and played on a colliery owned pitch in the heart of the miners rows at Connel Park, a mile or so to the west of the village. The club relocated to the purpose built Loch Park in 1960 situated on the land close to where the Afton Water flows gently into the River Nith. To mark this new beginning the club also changed colours from black and white to red and white.

A wide selection of hot and cold snacks, and drinks are available at very reasonable prices in their kitchen, popular with home and travelling suporters. The Mick Morran stand, named after the club's late legendary physio provides shelter on those infrequent days that the sun is not shining at New Cumnock.
