Parramore Sports F.C. was an English football club from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, but based later in its existence in Worksop, Nottinghamshire.

History[edit]

Parramore Sports was established in 1936 as the works team of ironfounders F Parramore & Sons. They played in local works leagues for a large part of their history before moving into the Sheffield and Hallamshire County Senior League (S&HCSL) in 1985.[1][2] They flitted between the Premier Division and Division 1 of the S&HCSL for nearly two decades before leaving for the Central Midlands League (CMFL) in 2008, playing at the Don Valley Stadium.

They were promoted to the Supreme Division of the CMFL after their first season in the competition, before changing name to Sheffield Parramore in 2010.[3] Parramore won the CMFL Supreme Division title in 2011, earning promotion to the Northern Counties East League (NCEL). Prior to the start of their first NCEL season, Parramore manager Peter Whitehead bought Worksop Town's disused Sandy Lane ground and moved the club to the town, renaming them Worksop Parramore.[4][5]

Their meteoric rise through the English football league system continued when they won promotion from NCEL Division 1 in their first season, earning a place in the FA Vase for the 2012–13 season. A year later they entered the FA Cup for the first time.

In 2013 the club merged with Handsworth F.C. to form Handsworth Parramore F.C.. The new club entered step 5 of the English football league system for the start of the 2014–15 season, remaining at Sandy Lane.[6]
