Broxburn Athletic F.C. are a Scottish junior football club based in the town of Broxburn, West Lothian. They play their home games at Albyn Park. The team was managed by the late Jamie Dolan.

The present Albyn Park opened in 1948 with a Hearts v. Rangers meeting, which attracted a crowd of around 3,500. It sits on the original Albion Park used by Broxburn F.C. in 1889. Athletic took over the lease in 1894 until both clubs amalgamated in 1912 and played at the Sports Park (now the sports centre). Athletic then moved back in 1921 until going defunct and then returned to Albyn Park after being reformed in 1948, after much help from its supporters, who made the ground improvements.

In 1946, Mr. G. W. Bartaby-Pearson, with the help of local businessmen, started the process of reforming Broxburn and secured Albyn park from the Earl of Buchan. The council now owns the land and Broxburn has a lease until 2036.

Broxburn have reached the Scottish Cup semi-final on five occasions, the last time being in 1971, when they lost by a single goal to Cambuslang. They also won the last-ever Division 2 title, due to league reconstruction.
