What a Great Day For Newtown, 3 from 3, well done to the Premier teams of the U12, U14 and U15’s. What a great effort from the Players, Coaches and Managers.
Also well done to all the Newtown teams who competed this season, win, lose or draw, you should all be proud of your efforts this season, the Club certainly is.
To all the volunteers that worked tirelessly mostly in the background, a Big Thank You for helping to make the magic happen on the field. We could not have put on any games at ADO (or anywhere) without your contributions, let alone hosting each round of the competition finals and the U11’s grand finals on Saturday at ADO. Your efforts don’t go unnoticed.
The Club also wishes to thank our sponsors, who not only supported our Club but also Junior Community Sports in general.
Thanks also goes out to Ron Hoenig MP, in his gracious support of the Club in securing grants for Club improvements in the Canteen,
It certainly is a banner year for the Newtown Swans, but to took a community of like minded people and organisations to make it happen.
Congratulations to all.
The PROUD President of The Newtown Swans
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:

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!!!! more history here
