Penrith F.C. is an football club based in Penrith, England founded in 1880. They originally joined the North Eastern League in 1907-08, and are currently members of the Northern League Division One.

The club joined the Northern League in 1947, spending 35 years in that competition until moving to the North West Counties League in 1982. A five-season spell in that league (including finishing as league runners-up in their first season saw them in a position to join the Northern Premier League when they expanded to form a second division in 1987.

The move to the NPL did not prove successful, and by 1990 they were relegated back to the North West Counties League, where they stayed for seven seasons before returning once more to the Northern League, fifteen years after originally leaving that league.

In 1981-82, they had their best ever FA Cup run, reaching the second round, beating Football League club Chester City in the first round.

In 2007, they changed their name to Penrith Town, but a merger a year later with Northern Football Alliance club Penrith United saw the old name resurrected for the merged club.
