North Adelaide Football Club, nicknamed The Roosters, is an Australian rules football club currently affiliated with the South Australian National Football League (SANFL). The club plays its home games at Prospect Oval, located in Prospect, a northern suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. The club was formed in 1888 as the Medindie Football Club, changing its name to North Adelaide in 1893. North Adelaide's first premiership was won in 1900, and the club has won a total of fourteen senior premierships during its time in the league, most recent is 2018.

History[edit]

The 1905 NAFC team.

Formed in 1888 as Medindie, in 1893 the club renamed itself to North Adelaide. It is the fourth oldest club still in operation in the SANFL. Although several other early clubs used the name of "North Adelaide", none of them bore ties to the current club [1].

North Adelaide started playing at Prospect Oval in 1922[citation needed] and it has remained their home ground ever since.

Ken Farmer – "The Bradman of Goalkickers"[citation needed] kicked 105 goals in 1930 to become the first SA League player to kick 100 goals in a league state. He was a prolific goalkicker, kicking 100 goals in a season in 11 consecutive seasons (1930–1940). Farmer also holds the record for the most goals in an SANFL match – 23 against West Torrens at Prospect on 6 July 1940. Farmer scored ten or more goals in thirty-seven matches, and 1,419 goals in total over his career, at an astounding average of 6.3 per match.

North Adelaide’s other iconic player,[1] Barrie Robran, played 201 League games for the Roosters and 10 State games, and won 3 Magarey Medals (1968, 1970 and 1973). He was the first SANFL player to be made a "Legend" in the Australian Football Hall of Fame, and the only "Legend" not to have played VFL or AFL.

North Adelaide competed in the first match played at Football Park (now known as AAMI Stadium) in round 5, 1974. Their opponent was Central District. The match was won by Central District.

The longest serving coach for the club is Michael Nunan – 12 seasons from 1981 to 1992.[citation needed] The Captain's record is held by Ian McKay, captaining the team for 8 years from 1948–1955.[citation needed]

Club song[edit]

North Adelaide have had many versions of their club song in the past. All versions have contained the same lyrics, but have been changed rhythm wise to keep up with the times.[citation needed] The lyrics and tune, by well known Australian singer/songwriter Johnny Mac, are the only completely original written in the league, as all the other clubs have written lyrics to well known tunes.[citation needed] The most recent version was brought in during the early 2000s, but all versions can still be found on the club song CD.[citation needed]

It's a great, great club,
And the club we love,
We're the good old red and whites!
The mighty Roosters we're called,
All for one, one for all,
If we're down we fight, fight, fight!
We always play as a team,
And we play it clean,
We're never out of sight,
Be it wet, be it dry,
We try, try, try,
We're the good old red and whites!

The North Adelaide Football Club has named two of their past champions as Icons. They are:

  • Ken Farmer - All-time leading SANFL goal kicker with 1,419 from 1929-41. Permiership player in 1930 and 1931. Premiership coach in 1949 and 1952. Since 1981 the leading goalkicker in each SANFL season has been awarded the "Ken Farmer Medal".
