The second-smallest of the main inhabited Channel Islands, Sark, has been the subject of much curiosity from football fans both on and off the internet in recent years, whether it has been caused by the history of the game on the island, the island's representative team dipping its toes in international action by way of its participation in the 2003 Island Games, or the travails of Sark Football Club, which was founded in 2001.

There is no complete list of results of games involving Sark Football Club - as opposed to the Sark representative side which took part in the Island Games - or its unofficial predecessors, but, with a lot of help from Sark FC club secretary Chris Drillot, Pat's Football Blog is able to provide a list of results which could be regarded as being reasonably, if not absolutely, comprehensive. Hence, the word "a" is used in the title instead of "the."

Sark FC's goalscorers are listed where possible; some are listed by first name or nickname only and is, admittedly, incomplete. That is at least in part due to the transient nature of life on Sark, at least as far as work is concerned. Sark FC play only occasionally, and a number of workers at one of the island's tourist establishments play perhaps once for the team before departing the island. To quote Chris Drillot: "We [Sark] have a lot of workers who come and go, and we only find out their first name or nickname."

Please note that not all of the scorers, dates or venues are listed.
