Formed in 1869 and entering the VFL competition in 1925 is the North Melbourne Football Club who have historically been known as one of the smaller and battling clubs in the competition.

They aren't, however short on culture or spirit where they're consistently defying their underdog tag with a fiercely competitive brand of football which has been orchestrated by some very astute coaches in recent years and it has the Kangaroos as a highly respected outfit going into any match.

North Melbourne History

After waiting nearly 30 years with numerous applications, North Melbourne were granted permission to enter the VFL competition in 1925 following many deliberations in deciding between themselves and the Prahran Football Club.

With a struggling first stage which mainly saw North Melbourne at the bottom of the AFL Ladder in it's first 25 years, they made improvements from the late 1940's and in the 1970's with the likes of Keith Greig, Doug Wade and Malcolm Blight headling a strong playing list, they tasted the utltimate success.

This was via premierships in 1975 and 1977 when defeating Collingwood and Hawthorn under legendary coach Ron Barassi before a lean period in the 1980's and early 1990's.

The beginning of 1993 saw the Kangaroos enlist the coaching services of Denis Pagan who made an immediate impact with their first finals appearance in almost a decade and under young captain and champion Centre half-forward Wayne Carey, North Melbourne were on their way to becoming the team of the 90's.

Finishing in the top four in every season from 1994 to 2000 with highlights including premierships in 1996 and 1999, they were a powerful outfit despite still having off-field insecurities with rumoured mergings and their financial problems became more prominent following that golden era in the early 2000's.
