Over the last 55 years, Modbury Soccer Club has grown from its original ‘working men’s’ foundation to one that has demonstrated a long-term commitment to developing and nurturing local footballing talent in Adelaide's north-east, while encouraging children, youth and adults to adopt a healthier lifestyle and greater physical activity participating in an affordable sporting program.

HistoryEdit

The club was first founded in 1964, however they were forced to wait a year in order to play in the 1965 season. For reasons unknown, they played in the 3rd division reserve league while their reserve side played in the 4th division.

The club almost became the Modbury Prague Soccer Club in 1968 when members of the Czechoslovakian Australian community in the area wanted to promote the game at Modbury. However the move was abandoned when club members vetoed the idea.

The club's facilities have been steadily improving over the years. Its ground was selected as one of the training venues for teams competing in the 2000 Olympic Games. Modbury is a popular community based club located in the Modbury/Tea Tree Gully area. The club fields both seniors and juniors teams.

In 2014, the Jets celebrated their fiftieth year as a club, and finished the season by clinching promotion through the play-off finals series.
