The New York Clan MacDonald were a Scottish American professional soccer club. They spent several seasons in both the National Association Football League and New York State Football Association.

History[edit]

In 1907, Clan MacDonald joined the National Association Football League (NAFBL). They finished sixth and withdrew from the NAFBL, joining the New York State Football Association (NYSFA). The NYSFA was broken into a Saturday and Sunday league. The Clan MacDonald won the Sunday league, but lost to Hollywood Inn F.C. of the Saturday league in the championship game.[1] In 1913, they rejoined the NAFBL, playing through the end of the 1914-1915 season. While they registered with the league prior to the 1915-1916 season, they withdrew before the first game of the season. In 1913, Clan MacDonald went to the semifinals of the American Amateur Football Association Cup.
