Northern United were moderately successful in the 1936 season, qualifying for finals, but losing the 1st Semi-Final against eventual premiers Willunga. In the 1937 season, Northern United finished bottom, only winning one game (against McLaren Vale), and at the end of the season, the club split with Noarlunga reforming and Morphett Vale going into recess.[2]
