Tamworth Australian Football League

The Tamworth Australian Football League is an Australian rules football competition in the Tamworth and New England region of New South Wales, Australia. The league began as a "pub competition" in Tamworth in 1997, with four 12-a-side teams, but has since grown to a regional league with seven teams based in six towns.

Prior to the establishment of the Tamworth AFL, there had been two other leagues in the area, the New England AFL, which folded after the 1984 season - and the North West AFL, which folded after the 1993 season.

Famous quotes containing the words australian, football and/or league:

    Beyond the horizon, or even the knowledge, of the cities along the coast, a great, creative impulse is at work—the only thing, after all, that gives this continent meaning and a guarantee of the future. Every Australian ought to climb up here, once in a way, and glimpse the various, manifold life of which he is a part.
    Vance Palmer (1885–1959)

    In football they measure forty-yard sprints. Nobody runs forty yards in basketball. Maybe you run the ninety-four feet of the court; then you stop, not on a dime, but on Miss Liberty’s torch. In football you run over somebody’s face.
    Donald Hall (b. 1928)

    Half a league, half a league,
    Half a league onward,
    All in the valley of Death
    Rode the six hundred.
    “Forward the Light Brigade!
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
