Jersey A.C.

Jersey Athletic Club, or Jersey A.C., was a U.S. soccer team which competed in the National Association Football League, winning two championships.

HistoryEdit

In 1907, Jersey A.C., which had long fielded a successful cricket team[1] entered a soccer team in the National Association Football League (NAFBL). They finished mid-table and withdrew at the end of the season. In 1908, Jersey A.C. returned to the NAFBL. In 1911, they won their second title. The team finished mid-table most seasons. With the entry of the United States into World War I, Jersey A.C. lost so many players to military service that it left the NAFBL in 1918 and ceased operations a year later.[2]
