Parkgate Football Club is an English football club based in Parkgate, Rotherham, South Yorkshire. They play in the Northern Counties East Football League Division One, at level 10 of the English football league system.


The club was established in 1969 as BSC Parkgate and played in the Hatchard and Sheffield Association leagues before joining the Yorkshire League in 1974. In 1979 they were promoted from Division Three to Division Two, and when the league merged with the Midland League to form the Northern Counties East League (NCEL) in 1982, Parkgate were entered into Division One South of the new competition.[2]

In 1986 they were promoted to the NCEL Division One. Two years after changing their name to RES Parkgate in 1990,[3] they installed floodlights, and in 1994 they changed their name again, this time to just Parkgate.[4] The 1997–98 season saw Parkgate reach the final of the Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup for the first time, losing to Emley at Hillsborough (they lost two further finals in 2006 and 2011).

They were finally promoted to the NCEL Premier Division in 2007 when they won the Division One title, and they have remained in this division ever since, reaching a high point in 2011 when they finished as league runners-up.

The Steelmen suffered relegation from the NCEL Premier Division at the end of the 2017–18 season under the guidance of Manager Billy Fox.

Following a poor start to the 2018–19 Division One season, manager Billy Fox was relieved of his position as manager leaving the club with 1 point from the first 6 games. Chairman Albert Dudill quickly appointed former player Andy Dawson as First Team Manager, Lee Whitehead as assistant manager and Ben Starosta as player-coach.
