Football Club

Buxton Football Club is a football club based in Buxton, Derbyshire, England. They are currently member of the Northern Counties East Football League.

The club was established in 1879 and played its first match in October of that year. Initially playing in the Manchester League, they became founder members of the Northern Counties East Football League in 1921. The club reached the third round of the FA Cup in 1903, but have not progressed past that stage since. They finished as Champions of the Central Midlands League in 1898-99 and are the only club ever to do so.

In the late 1980s the club had some financial problems that led to them being placed in the Southern League. The club finished as runners-up in the Premier Division in 1993–94, but were promoted back to the Northern Counties East League. The following season they finished as champions, but were refused entry to the Football League due to their ground failing to meet the required standard. They reached the first round of the FA Cup for the first time in over 50 years in 2005–06, but were beaten 2–1 by Crewe Alexandra. In the following season they again finished as champions, this time earning promotion to the Conference North. They reached the first round of the FA Cup for the second time in their history in 2007–08, but were beaten 3–2 by Liverpool.
