Mosgiel AFC is a semi-professional association football club in Mosgiel, New Zealand. They currently compete in the ODT FootballSouth Premier League.

Club history[edit]

The club was formed in 1913 and is based at Memorial Park. The club provides teams for men, women and juniors at all levels. The club's nickname, The Plainsmen, comes from Mosgiel's location on the Taieri Plains.

Mosgiel have twice reached the final of the Chatham Cup, in 1938 and 1940, but have never won the competition. In more recent times their best performance has been to reach the last 16 of the competition in 1985 and 2005.

Present day[edit]

The club is currently competing in the ODT FootballSouth Premier League. Their best finish in the league was in the 2004 and again in the 2010 season, when they finished third.

Former captain, Morgan Day, holds the dubious honour of "Most appearances since debut without scoring in the ASB Premiership" but has since scored in every game (1) played since February 28, 2016.

Notable Mosgiel players include Michael McGarry, Jesse Wright, Cody Brook, and Cameron Howieson.

The Mosgiel goalkeeper (Andy James) stops a Caversham cross from reaching its target, Tonga Park, Dunedin, 31 July 2010. Mosgiel are playing in the blue strip.
