A brief history

The Newtown Angels formed in 1903 and upto 1986 would see good crowds at their home ground, Erskineville Oval.  The Club folded in 1986 and was reformed in 1999 as a junior football club [NSJFC] in honour of the Newtown Football Club. The Newtown Swans Football Club has since gone from strength to strength and is now in it's 11th year with 222 playing members. The Club has seen membership increase each and every year with an increase of 158% in the last 4 years. Just have a look at these amazing old photographs to see how good this club really was...Photo Gallery 1
Here are some highlights:
AFL Greater Sydney Juniors - Sydney Harbour Best Club Award -  2010
AFL Greater Sydney Juniors - Sydney Harbour - Inner City Premierships -
2008 (Under 10) 2010 (Under 12)
AFL Greater Sydney Juniors - Sydney Harbour - Best Team Award - 2010 (Under
14 Div 2)
Newtown FC - the Newtown Blood Stained Angels - established 1903 - folded
1986 Senior Sydney AFL Premierships - 1906, 1928, 1929, 1930, 1932, 1933, 1936,
1939, 1940, 1942, 1945, 1946, 1947, 1948, 1949, 1950, 1967, 1968, 1970
Yes that is 19 Premierships by our founding Club!
However, the 19 Senior Premierships won by Newtown FC between 1903 and 1970 does not tell the whole story of the club’s dominance of Sydney Footy.

In terms of Premierships and Finals appearances (a final four operated) the record of the club from 1903-1986 is truly staggering, Newtown first made the finals in 1905 finishing third and they last made the finals in 1981 losing in the Grand Final to East Sydney – the other giant of Sydney Footy.
In total the finals record of the club was:
Premierships – 19
Runners up – 19
Third – 21
Fourth – 8
Or to put it another way … 67 finals appearances in 84 years!!!!
