|Full name||Sportclub Neukirchen 1899 e. V.|
|League||Kreisoberliga Schwalm-Eder (VIII)|
The actual foundation date of the club is shrouded in mystery but the club decided in 1945 that 1899 seemed the most likely year. The local gymnastics club, a predecessor of the SCN dates back to 1864 but the current club does not claim this as its foundation year.
The club did not rise above local amateur level until 1984, when it won promotion to the Landesliga Hessen-Nord, one of the three fourth-tier leagues in Hesse at the time. The SCN became an instant success in this league, finishing in the top-five for the next five seasons. In the 1989–90 seasons, it had to struggle, finishing only 12th but still well clear of the relegation places. After this laps, it returned to its old ways in 1990–91, coming third and managed to win its league the season after.
Promoted to the Oberliga Hessen for the first time in 1992, it had two seasons in mid-table before winning the championship in Hesse's highest amateur league. Promotion to the Regionalliga Süd (III) was the reward for this.
The club held out for four seasons in the third division, earning a ninth-place finish in 1996–97 as its best result. After this, it declined and, coming last in 1999, was relegated back down again.
A second place in its first year back in the Oberliga was followed by a gradual decline. After the 2002–03 season, where an eleventh place would have meant survival, the club was forced to withdraw from the league for financial reasons. The SCN stepped down from tier-four straight to tier seven, entering the Bezirksliga Kassel for the 2003–04 seasons.
It struggled to find its footing in lower amateur football, suffering another relegation but soon recovered to climb the ranks again. In 2007, it won promotion to the tier six Bezirksoberliga, which became the Gruppenliga the following year. SCN lasted for four seasons at this level before suffering relegation in 2011.
