    ⚽️ Magpies Sporting Club co-founded Magpies Crusaders United Football Club in 2017 after our submission was approved for Magpies Crusaders to join the National Premier League (NPL). A couple of years later we were pleased to pass the management of Magpies Crusaders to dedicated members of the football community. Our support of Magpies Crusaders still continues. We are particularly proud to be a part of the new Youth Girls Program that is developing young female players. The appreciation of the program, and the sheer dedication from this group of girls is admirable.
