The Singleton Australian Football Club has a long history with the game being played in Singleton as early as the late 19th century.
The club has historically had an intrinsic link with the Lone Pine Army Base near Singleton, as well as strong ties in the industrial & farming community that surrounds the Singleton Township.
Between 1997 and 2005, the club did not field a senior team but concentrated on developing its player base through its junior grades, which are part of the Newcastle Junior AFL, affiliated with the Greater Sydney Junior AFL.
However in 2006, it entered both Reserves and Under 18 teams in the Black Diamond AFL, making the finals in its first year and winning the Reserve Grade Premierships in seasons 2009 and 2010. For the first time since season 1996, the club fielded a senior team in the Black Diamond Cup (first grade) in season 2011.
The club’s player base extends from as far north as Tamworth and as far south as Maitland. Singleton is a progressive and growing town in the Upper Hunter offering an abundance of job prospects. We are always looking for more people to join this friendly and growing club.
