History of the club

Eastern Suburbs Association Football Club Inc was formed in 1934 as a result of the amalgamation between Tamaki United AFC (formed 1924) and Glen Innes (formed 1930), and it has proved a great nursery for Auckland football. During it's 83 years of existence Eastern Suburbs has won every honour available to a club in Auckland soccer. Titles include:

Chatham Cup: 1951, 53, 65, 68, 69, 2015

Rothmans National League: 1971

Northern League Champions: 1965, 1966, 2015

Northern League Div 1 Champions: 2011

Northern League Div 2 Champions: 2003

Northern League Div 3 Champions: 1997

Auckland FA Champions: 1948, 50, 51, 52, 53, 57 & 62

Women's Premier Champions: 1975, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80  2013

While these victories have brought great prestige and publicity to the club, it views its greatest success as having provided a recreational and sporting environment for thousands of youngsters and their families in and around the Eastern Suburbs of Auckland. It has been able to do this because successive club committees have pledged their commitment to fostering the development of junior and teenage soccer.

The club's catchment area extends from Parnell, Newmarket and Remuera in the West through Meadowbank, Mission Bay, Kohimaramara, St Heliers, Glendowie, Glen Innes, St Johns, Stonefields, and into Panmure .

The club administration staff consists of 2 full-time administrative employees, 4 full time coaches, and numerous part time coaches all who report to the club executive and are based at the Madills Farm clubrooms. Activities are organised and operated largely by enthusiasts providing their time, experience and effort on a voluntary basis and we therefore continually look for the members support. Structurally the club is run by an Executive Committee and four sub committees namely, Seniors (18 years and above) , Youth (10-17 year olds) and Juniors (5-9 year olds) and Girls / Womens.
