Blackburn Park Road F.C. was a football team formed in 1875. They played in Blackburn, Lancashire, not far from the railway station.
For a few years in the 1880s they entered the FA Cup, then known as the English Cup. Despite some good results they were rarely a match for the two major town teams of that time: Blackburn Rovers and Blackburn Olympic. In 1883-84 they beat Clitheroe Low Moor 6-0, before losing narrowly (2-3) to one of the region's best teams, Accrington. They played for four seasons in the Lancashire Combination, without ever finishing in the top half of the table. On 17 October 1885 they were beaten 2-1 at Scottish side Third Lanark in the F.A. Cup. In 1887-88 they beat (Northern) Irish invitee (Lisburn) Distillery 2-1 in the FA Cup, but were disqualified and Distillery advanced.
Eventually the club ran out of money and had to disband.
