History & Info

Newington players in action during the 2022/23 season


Newington are one of the newer arrivals to the Northern Ireland Football League structure but their history as a club stretches back to the late 1970s.
 
Originally formed as Jubilee Olympic in 1979, the club began life in regional junior football, changed name to Newington Youth Club in 1986 and lifted the prestigious County Antrim Junior Shield at the beginning of the 1990s.
 
They joined the Northern Amateur Football League (NAFL) pyramid and rapidly progressed through the ranks to eventually be crowned the top junior club in the country with victory over Lisbellaw United to win the IFA Junior Cup in 1997.
 
Bolstered by this the Swans made the step up to intermediate football and again enjoyed considerable success, regularly clinching the NAFL Premier Division title and causing shockwaves with a famous Irish Cup win over Glentoran at The Oval.
 
A play-off defeat of Dollingstown earned promotion to NIFL Championship 2 in time for the 2013/14 campaign.

Finishing fourth in that first season the club have consolidated their status since then, formally dropped 'Youth Club' from their name and, in December 2017, landed their biggest piece of silverware to date when Padraig Scollay scored the only goal of the game in a Steel & Sons Cup final win over Linfield Swifts.
