They also play in red and yellow


Tapiray no. 61 - Newhaven FC (England)

Newhaven in action

Newhaven FC play in the Sussex County Football League in England, of which there are three divisions sitting at levels 9, 10, and 11 of the English Football League system - they are currently in Division 3, so some way off from the dizzy heights of the Conference, never mind the Football League!

Nicknamed The Dockers, sadly, although this photo from a couple of years ago shows them playing in red and yellow strips, their current kit is red with a white trim

Tapiray no. 62 - FC Ashdod (Israel)

Ashdod's  red, yellow & black kit

FC Ashdod play in the Israeli top flight - the Ligat ha'Al. Based in the port town of Ashdod on the Mediterranean Sea coast they were formed in 1999 from the merger of Hapoel Ashdod and Maccabi Ironi Ashdod. They originally played in an all blue kit, but it was then decided they should incorporate Hapoel's red and Maccabi's yellow and blue, giving them their red and yellow club colours.

They are generally a mid-table side in the Israeli League, but in 2004/05 they finished third, pipping current champions Beitar Jerusalem to a UEFA Cup place. However, their European adventure didn't last long and although they were unbeaten in both legs of their second qualifying round tie against Slovenian's NK Domžale, they went out on the away goals rule, and that season were back to finishing in mid-table in their domestic league.

Tapiray no. 63 - Royal Cappellen FC (Belgium)

(L) Traditional stripes (R) 2008 home top

Back to the Belgian leagues for Royal Cappellen FC. Founded in 1906, they're from the town of Kapellen in the suburbs of Antwerp and play in the 3500 capacity Jos Van Wellen stadium.

They've spent most of their history playing in the lower reaches of Belgian football, including a number of years down in the provincial leagues. Their most successful seasons were two short spells in the Second Division (in the 1930s and mid '90s), and they're currently in the Third Division. At the moment they've ditched their traditional stripes, instead playing in an all red strip with yellow trim.

Tapiray no. 64 - Broadmeadow Magic (Australia)

Broadmeadow Magic are semi-professional club in Australia. Based in the Broadmeadow suburb of Newcastle in New South Wales, they were founded in 1966 by Macedonian immigrants, and although they play under the name of Broadmeadow Magic, they are also known as Newcastle Macedonia Football Club.

They've just finished a successful year with both their first team and reserve team being named league champions.
