Pinxton Football Club was formed in 1994 and played in the Mansfield Bitter League between 1994 and 1998. We gained our first success in the 1995-1996 season by becoming the Division 2 Champions and League Cup Winners. The following season saw us crowned Division 1 Champions and a brought a new challenge with the club joining the Midland Regional Alliance League for the 1997-98 season. The success of the club continued as we won the Derbyshire Junior Cup with a 1-0 victory against Furness Vale in May 1999. In the 2001-2002 season we were crowned Division 1 Champions and were promoted to the Premier Division. In our first season we had a respectable 12th place finish and then improved upon this in the 2003-2004 season with a 6th place finish. With the club wanting to further its ambition we took the decision to join the Central Midlands Football League at the start of the 2004-2005 season. In our debut season we finished a creditable 4th and were promoted to the Supreme Division. After a shocking start to the new season we managed to finish 15th but were relegated back to the Premier Division due to league rules concerning the erection of floodlights. We finished the next season in 5th and were promoted back into the Supreme Division where we ended the season in 14th place. We had a disappointing start to the 2008-2009 season but we hit a purple patch after Christmas which saw us finish in 8th and under the guidance of Tim Graney win our first piece of silverware in the CMFL when we demolished Sutton Town 4-0 in the final of the Floodlit Cup.

At the start of the 2010-2011 season Tim took over the secretary role and handed the management reins over to Kenny Shinfield, after 2 seasons as Manager Kenny transferred to Assistant Manager for the 2021-13 season and Glen Clarence took the role of Manager, Martin Sutton has also joined the club for the season in the position of Coach. The 2013-14 season brings a new look management team of Ben Newman, Lee Cook and Kenny Shinfield. In the 2010-11 season we took the decision to introduce an Under 19’s team at the club to replace the previous Reserves, they have had a very successful couple of seasons in the North Midlands Under 19’s League, being crowned Division 3 Champions in their first season and finishing runners up in Division 2 in the 2011-12 season, which sees them promoted to Division 1 for the coming season, where we are hopeful they will continue their success. For the 2013-14 season the Under 19s have been replaced with a Reserves side with manager John Mason and his assistant Loz Foster joining the club. The 2014-15 season sees a first team management team of Ben Newman, Lee Cook and Phil Greaves with Martin Bower and Kevin Heathcote taking over the reins of the Reserves 2016-17 season sees Kenny Shinfield return to the club as part of amanagement team with Paul Macfarland and Kev Grundy. Scott Rogers takes over the reins for the 2017-18 season.

A lot of time, effort and money has been spent on the facilities at the Welfare Ground to enable us to compete at this level and with a forward looking committee we are confident that our facilities will be appropriate for the club to progress to a higher level should this opportunity present itself.
