Barmouth & Dyffryn United Football Club is a Welsh football club based in the coastal town of Barmouth, Gwynedd, also representing the nearby town of Dyffryn Ardudwy. They play in the Mid Wales Football League West Division. The “Magpies” play their games at the Wern Mynach. Barmouth also has a strong youth team, with many players who played for Barmouth playing for football league academies in Wales. The Magpies won the league in 2011 after a hard-working season, Barmouth also competes in the Football Association of Wales cup competitions, along with cup competitions sanctioned by the North Wales Coast Football Association.

The Club existed in 1863 and was one of six inaugural clubs when the Cambrian League was formed in 1896. Little is recorded of this early period. An incarnation of the club reformed in 1901. The Cambrian Coast Football League was founded in January 1920 and Barmouth were league champions in 1920 and 1922. In 1930 an eight-team Cambrian Coast League was revived. It ended in 1963.

Prior to the outbreak of World War II, Barmouth FC & Dyffryn FC were two separate clubs competing in the Cambrian Coast League. Following the ending of hostilities, Barmouth & Dyffryn United appear in the Cambrian Coast League. This would indicate that the current club was formed in 1945, following a merger of the two clubs.

Barmouth joined the Central Wales League in 1963 and were champions in the 1969–70 season, also reaching the fifth round of the Welsh Cup, playing Cardiff City F.C. Barmouth won the NWCFA Challenge Cup in 1969 and 1971. They won the Central Wales Challenge Cup in 1973. The club resigned from the CWL at the end of the 1972–73 season and reappeared in the Aberystwyth & District League in 1978–79.

Barmouth & Dyffryn left the Aberystwyth & District League at the end of the 1992–93 season and joined the Gwynedd Football League. At the end of the 2000–01 season they withdrew after finishing last but one. They played in the Caernarfon & District League winning the AEEU Cup in 2002 and, after becoming league champions returned to the Gwynedd Football League.

In 2006–07 they were runners-up in the Gwynedd League title but were promoted to the Welsh Alliance League on appeal. They finished tenth in the first full season and fourth in 2009–2010.
