1893 - Extensive research from club Life Member Gary Wicking, a former player and club historian, searching over old local newspapers both in print and archived on microfiche film and has uncovered evidence that an earlier version of the club may have existed as far back as 1893 - but this does not concur with our club’s auspicious beginnings that are well documented.
1928 - The Aberfeldie Cricket Club’s roots trace back to 1928, when the club entered a competition known as the Northern District Progress Cricket Association.
1948 - The Football Club joins the EDFL competition for the first time and the Aberfeldie Sports Club is formed, combining both Football and Cricket under the same umbrella (which still operates harmoniously to this day). Known as ‘The Gorillas’, the football team wore a navy blue guernsey with an ACC monogram, in reference to the Aberfeldie Community Centre. The first team to represent the club was an Under 17 side which first took to the field in 1948, later winning the club’s inaugural first premiership in 1951.

1999 - After many years, the club’s well known jumper of the light blue colour with a navy blue yoke, was retired at the end of the season. The new strip, featuring the light sky blue with a navy blue flash down the front panel, and both colours in halves on the rear panel was unveiled amid some controversy in 2000 when it was adopted. Purists preferred the old strip, but in keeping with modern times, the club’s new look was certainly fresh and appealing

2008 – EDFL Under 18 Premiers, 9th U18 flag.

2011 - On the occasion of Clifton Park’s 50th Anniversary, the senior teams wore a one-off replica of the original strip. The strip was so well received that the senior football section decided to return to its familiar brand of the light blue jumper and navy blue yoke in 2012, retiring the flash strip permanently which had been in use since 2000. In 2013, the junior football section followed the seniors and rolled out the classic strip as well.
