I have heard that but not sure if any truth to it? Similarly to Rockdale there isn't much today that would allude to that, different generation though of course.

I have heard of some unpleasant atmospheres at Altona-Preston games, what is the relationship like?

Just stories from the past I suppose. Apparently Altona would refer to Preston as "Greeks" because Preston was formed by Macedonians escaping Greek oppression; Altona tried to present themselves as the "true" Macedonian club as its founders were from the Socialist Republic.

They have not shared a league with eachother in a few years but there used to be quite a conflict. Relations have improved recently though.

Broadmeadow Magic (Newcastle Macedonia) have now also qualified for the Australia Cup, alongside Newcastle Olympic (Greeks).

Interesting, Macedonians are really good at being divisive unfortunately. Good to hear relations have improved though!

Great to see another Macedonian club make it through, congrats to them. Will be interesting to see who the Macedonian clubs draw next week.

Related to our previous convos about Altona, Rockdale e.t.c look at this from Broadmeadows website https://magicfc.com.au/history/

“1970 – 1994 Broadmeadow Macedonia & Hamilton Red Star

The club adopted a new playing name of Broadmeadow Macedonia for seasons 1970 to 1972. The club was expelled from all competitions at the end of the 1972 season and for the two seasons that followed 1973 and 1974 the club had no administration with members playing social small sided football in local parks. In 1974 a new younger more enthusiastic committee headed by Bobby Lozanovski and Doug Pichaloff was formed and with them came the birth of Hamilton Red Star, named after Eurpoean Champions Red Star Belgrade.”

How do you go from Newcastle Macedonia to Red Star.

I believe Broadmeadow were also one of the former "Yugoslovenski" clubs. Pretty sure they are sisters with Altona (hence the "Magic" monikers). I am not 100% sure, but they may have only been known as Hamilton Red Star for a few seasons before reverting back to Broadmeadow United - Macedonia. I could be wrong though as I am not very knowledgeable on the Macedonian community in Newcastle.

Wollongong United (Macedonia) played in Australia's national football cup against a Maltese club from Melbourne. The game was meant to be at Macedonia Park but it was washed out. The players played with the Macedonian sun on their jerseys:

Great read, was exciting to see two Macedonian clubs in the round of 32. I thought Wollongong were going to snatch the game when they went up 2-1 early second half but wasn't meant to be. Broadmeadow unlucky in the end too.

Hoping for another Macedonian club or two next year. Australian football was missing this national cup and the excitement it brings, I love those small suburban grounds.

I totally agree.

A comment in the thread also claimed the same for Cringila Lions, who were supposedly also pro-Yugoslav and against the "patriots" at Wollongong Macedonia (now Wollongong United). There were insinuations that the same was true for Altona Gate "Vardar" (now Altona Magic), who I know used to sometimes call those at Preston Makedonia "Greeks".

Is anyone able to shed some light on all this?
Related to the above. Footage from Rockdale Ilinden's 1984 NSW First Division title win against Inter Monaro. Seems to be the flag of the Socialist Republic (of Macedonia) in the celebrations at the end, along with some red and black flags. Don't think I have ever seen this flag make an appearance in any Preston matches from the same time.

I don't think we can judge too harshly as many Macedonians in Australia used that flag up until the late 1980s. I do agree though that footage from Preston games during the same period shows a total absence of that flag.
