Mauchline FC was a senior football team based in the small town of Mauchline in East Ayrshire. The club was founded in 1873 and played their homes matches at Connel Park. They played in a blue and white striped shirt with white shorts. The senior club dissolved in 1897 but adopted junior status as Mauchline Thistle FC, which itself disbanded just seven years later.

Mauchline FC was an original member of two ill-fated leagues who survived for just one season, The Ayrshire Football League for the 1891-92 season and the original South of Scotland Football League in 1892-93.[1]

However, Mauchline were better known as a cup team, appearing in every Scottish Cup from 1875-76 to 1885-86, and often reaching the later rounds. In 1877-78 they reached the quarter-finals only to lose 1-3 away to the eventual winners, Renton.[2] That same year they beat Kilmarnock Portland 4-2 to win the inaugural Ayrshire Cup.

A second Mauchline FC was founded in 1911 and existed until 1922 although all competitions were suspended throughout the First World War, 1914-18.[3]
