Seatoun AFC is a football (soccer) club in New Zealand, based in the Wellington suburb of Seatoun. The club was founded in 1909 by Charlie Yeoman. One of the strongest clubs in the country during the 1950s, it won the national knockout Chatham Cup in 1957 and 1958. Their 1958 win, a 7-1 win over Christchurch City, remains the highest score by any team in a Chatham Cup final (equalled in 1989 by Christchurch United). Many international players have represented Seatoun including Shane Rufer, Michael Utting, Jeff Strom, Rupert Ryan, Billy Harris, Paul Cameron and the 25 capped Grahame Bilby. In 2013 the Seatoun AFC First Team, coached by player/coach Steve Dimakis, beat Marist AFC 3-2 in a playoff for promotion to Capital Premier. This was the third consecutive promotion for the team, having risen from Capital 3 in 2010.
