• Plan and develop suitable displays of the Club’s history. Tragically, he and his younger brother Elliot were involved in a collision between their motor cycle and a truck in Frome Street near the zoo on the following Friday. Then Port scored twice more to reduce the deficit to just 6 points. In 1886 Medindie was promoted to the Adelaide and Suburban Association, and spent the next two seasons playing in that competition.

In 1927 North finished second and eliminated West Torrens in the first final and then beat West 8.3 to 6.11 in the Final. First Farmer took a strong mark over Maywald and goaled. The Medindie squad in 1888 Medindie spent the first four years of its existence playing against other clubs that weren't involved in an organised competition.
• Develop standards for resolving the authenticity of historical records. Because of the challenge system, North had to play West (minor premiers) again and this time lost by 7 points. Then he had another shot from the boundary but mis-kicked and Barrett took a great mark and goaled. Amongst these clubs were Prince Alfred College, St Peter's College, Commercial College, Walkerville, Triton, North Parks, Creswick and Semaphore.
Read about our history The Medindie Football Club is formed by a group of nearby college students from Prince Alfred College and Whinham College. On the Thursday night after their debut game (May 17th) at a meeting of the Association the issue of the similarity of colours between the two clubs was raised.
Medindie is admitted to the South Australian Football Association. As they would be playing each other on May 26th a solution was needed to avoid the clashing of colours.

In 1926 North finished fourth at the end of the minor round. Heavy rain began to fall and North added two more points as they continued to dominate play. by Nick Haines Established - 1881 Joined South Australian Junior Football Association - 1885 Joined Adelaide and Suburban Association - 1886 Joined South Australian Football Association - 1888 Changed name to North Adelaide - 1893 North Adelaide's long history can be traced directly back to the formation of the Medindie Football Club.
To address this issue, it was suggested that the Club set up a committee to undertake this work. In the first week of the finals, North played superb football to eliminate Port and Norwood beat minor premiers Sturt. Just before the siren, Port scored their second - a disputed goal which Conrad claimed to have touched. Medindie was formed in 1881 when a group of College students (from Prince Alfred College and the now defunct Whinham College) formed a team to play some football matches in the nearby parklands.
There are, however, many areas in which several members contribute to the outcome.

At the eleventh hour, just prior to the start of the 1888 season, a meeting was held in an attempt to reconcile the opposing parties.
The major achievements of the Committee to date have been: •Establishing a database to record details of the Club's memorabilia collection and then cataloguing and storing all memorabilia to archival standards •Scanning the Club's photographic collection to archival standards •Producing books: North Adelaide's Greatest (about our Team of the Century) An Unshakable Will to Win (the story of the 1949 premiership year) North's Record-Making Year (the story of the 1952 premiership year) Never Say Die (the story of the 1960 premiership year) Two Glorious Years (the story of the 19 premiership years) Power, Guts and Glory (the story of the 1987 premiership year) • Acquiring the Farmer collection of scrapbooks and trophies • Mounting two exhibitions: "Legends" (featuring Barrie Robran and Ken Farmer) "Fabulous Forwards" (featuring Darren Jarman, Grenville Dietrich, Dennis Sachse, Don Lindner, Ron Phillips and Ken Farmer) • Organising functions to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our 1905 premiership, the 60th anniversary of our 1949 premiership, the 50th and 60th anniversaries of our 1952 premiership, the 45th and 50th anniversaries of our 1960 premiership, the 40th anniversary of our 1971/72 premierships and the 20th anniversary of our 1987 premiership •Organising a function in 2013 to celebrate our Magarey Medallists, featuring displays of their medals, audio-visual tributes to each Medallist and interviews with Medallists/relatives. Port repeatedly went forward but North's backline, steady as a rock throughout, repelled them time and again. Medindie (despite its junior status), was invited to join the latter group, with the plan being to have four teams competing against each other.
