About us

A little bit of History about the Palmy Maggies
Side by side we Stick together, Good old Palmerston Forever

All hail the Palmy Army!

Come and join the greatest team of all!

Originally known as the Internationals, the club was formed in 1971 by a group which consisted primarily of soccer players intent on keeping fit during their off season. After showing some promise as semi-official members of the NTFL Reserves competition in the 1971/72 season; the club was admitted to senior ranks the following year and changed its name to North Darwin.

North Darwin approached Keith Kemp to be the Club Patron (now held by Mick Malady..) and adopted the playing strip of The Collingwood Football Club, maybe hoping that the success of the famous Magpies would set the stage for success within the local competition.

The Palmerston Magpies Football Club was borne initially from the re-location of the North Darwin Football Club to the city of Palmerston, south of Darwin in 1995/96. We were first known as North Darwin/Palmerston Magpies before dropping off the name of North Darwin to become the Palmerston Magpies Football Club in 1996/97.

In more recent times, the club has shown great promise across all of it's 12 competing teams. Led by passionate coaches and their new President John Marshall, (returning to the club in his old role) the club has entered a new era.

Volunteers steer the Magpies from behind the scenes, please see our Committee and Volunteers page to learn more about our Club's vital support staff. On field success in the 2015/16 season came from all our junior teams, with our senior women's losing by under a goal to miss out on the grand final. They showed great heart and courage to compete so strongly throughout the year. Our premier men's team fell short of a finals berth, but only on percentage.

2017 will be the year of the Pie, so come and grab a seat amongst the PALMY ARMY and feel the passion!
