The Port Adelaide Magpies Football Club - "the Magpies" - was founded in 1997 to replace the original Port Adelaide Football Club that also shared the nickname "magpies". Since inception, the Port Adelaide Magpies Football Club has won 2 premierships.http://www.portmagpies.com.au/about.php]

Club History

The members of the previous PAFC voted on a new name and entity for a club that would represent Port Adelaide in the SANFL. The name selected was "Port Adelaide Magpies Football Club". Rather than re-register the club, the SANFL simply continued the registration of this club as an ongoing entity. The PAMFC would therefore be able share the statistacal history of the PAFC from 1870 to 1996 even though though they are different clubs (similar to the Cleveland Browns in the NFL).

Stephen Williams was appointed coach of the Port Adelaide Magpies Football Club when John Cahill stepped aside mid-season in 1996 to concentrate solely on his job as coach of the Port Adelaide Football Club that had joined the AFL. In keeping with tradition, Steven guided the club to three more premierships (1 in 1996 as the previous PAFC + 2 with the PAMFC) before announcing his resignation at the end of the 2003 season. In 2003 Brett Ebert created history by becoming the first son of a Magarey Medallist to also claim the coveted award.

2005 saw club legend John Cahill return to coach the Magpies for 1 year, leading the Club to finish in 3rd position and really set the Club up for an exciting and successful future once again. Recruit Jeremy Clayton dominated the competition until a devastating ruptured spleen in the Qualifying Final victory over the Eagles ended his season and meant that he had to watch from his hospital bed as he took out the 2005 Magarey Medal. In 2006 Tim Ginever, who was Cahill’s assistant in 2005, took over the reins as senior coach together with the appointment of Mark Clayton as the new Club Captain.
