Girvan Football Club are a Scottish football club based in the town of Girvan, South Ayrshire. Nicknamed the Seasiders, they were formed in 1947, and play at Hamilton Park. They currently play in the Scottish Junior Football Association, West Region.

Prior to the 2004–05 season, Girvan played in the South of Scotland Football League and as full members of the Scottish Football Association, entered the Scottish Qualifying Cup each year. When the club joined the Scottish Junior Football Association in 2004, they were allowed to continue this arrangement and since Scottish Cup re-organisation in 2007, now qualify directly for the tournament every season.[1] This situation was unique to Girvan until 2014 when fellow Junior clubs Banks O' Dee and Linlithgow Rose also achieved full SFA member status via club licensing.

The current management team of Lawrie Dinwoodie and assistant, Jamie McRae took charge following the departure of previous manager Peter Leonard, in October 2017.[2][3]
