Newark Skeeters

The Newark Skeeters was an American soccer club based in Newark, New Jersey and was a member of the American Soccer League and the Eastern Soccer League.


In December 1924, Tom Adams, former manager of West Hudson A.A., became the manager of the Skeeters.[1] In 1928, the American Soccer League suspended Newark when the team defied the league's boycott of the National Challenge Cup. The Skeeters then joined two other ASL teams, Bethlehem Steel F.C. and the New York Giants, in the newly created Eastern Professional Soccer League. The club folded upon the merger of the ASL & ESL after the fall 1929 season.
