North Adelaide Football Club
The North Adelaide Football Club has a long and proud history, dating from its establishment in 1893. The main thing which sets North apart from its rivals is that it has arguably produced more exceptional footballers than any other Club. North Adelaide’s history can be traced directly back to the formation of the Medindie Football Club. Medindie was formed in 1881 when a group of nearby College students (from Prince Alfred College and the now defunct Whinham College) formed a team to play some football matches in the nearby parklands. They took their colours of red and white from Prince Alfred College and wore a strip not dissimilar to the one that Prince’s football team wore.
