Northern AFC is an association football club in North East Valley, Dunedin, New Zealand. They are currently competing in the ODT FootballSouth Premier League.

The club is based at The Gardens Ground, North East Valley, Dunedin. The undulating playing surface and overhanging trees ensure that every match at 'Fortress Gardens' is a tough encounter for the away side.

Club history

Established in 1888, the club claims to be the oldest in continual existence in New Zealand.[1] They have twice won the Chatham Cup, in 1959 and 1961, and have been finalists on eight other occasions.[2]

After amalgamating with Maori Hill (founded 1904) in 1972, the club was briefly known as Dunedin North End (1972–1974) and then as North End United, a name it used until 1990. The club is celebrating its 125th jubilee in 2013.

Northern's club strip is a vertical black and white striped shirt, black shorts and socks. The tangerine away strip is a real fan favourite.
