History

In 1906, Newark F.C. entered the professional National Association Football League. Finishing a respectable fourth, they jumped to the top of the standings during the 1907-1908 season. In 1909, Newark began the season in the NAFBL, but withdrew during the season. At the same time, it took part in the failed first Eastern Soccer League (ESL). The ESL was created as a “super league” of top east coast teams who would compete both in the ESL and their home leagues. The ESL completed less than half of the scheduled games before collapsing. At the time, Newark was at the bottom of the standings with an 0-4-1 record. Newark returned to the NAFBL, but withdrew at the end of the season to joined the New York and District Amateur Association Football League (NYDAAFBL). Newark won the league, but jumped back to the NAFBL during the 1912-1913 season. The Brooklyn Wanderers has begun the season, but withdrew after six games. Newark took their place and finished ninth having played only thirteen games (3-8-2 record). They rebounded the next season, finishing fourth, but dropped the next season to eighth. This time they withdrew from the NAFBL and never returned. While their league play was below par, they did go to the final of the American Amateur Football Association Cup.
