Mangotsfield Football Club was an association football club founded in 1888 in the village of Mangotsfield, Gloucestershire in England. They were a founder member of the Bristol & District League (later renamed the Western League) in 1892, where they played for six years before being disbanded in 1898.
|Full name||Mangotsfield Football Club|
Several attempts were made to reform the club, but none of these lasted for long, and the village remained without a regular football team until the foundation of Mangotsfield United, which was started by players left without a club when the last incarnation of Mangotsfield F.C. wound up its reserve team in 1951.
Mangotsfield were perennial losers, only managing to finish above the bottom two of their division once, when they finished third of seven teams in Division Two of the Western League at the end of the 1896–97 season.
