Arbroath Sporting Club (commonly known as Arbroath SC) were a Scottish junior football club based in Arbroath. Their home ground was Seaton Park.

Formed in 1960 as Angus Social Club,[1] they played in the amateur and juvenile levels in the 1960s and early 1970s, with home games at the Low Common. They turned junior in the 1973, changed their name to Arbroath Sporting Club, and moved to their new home of Seaton Park. Seaton Park is now well known for car boot sales every Sunday in the summer months.

Up until the end of the 2005–06 season, they played in the Tayside Premier League of the Scottish Junior Football Association's Eastern Region.
