Pre-VFL/AFL jumpers

1874-1885

The original jumper worn on North Melbourne's inclusion into the VFA with blue and white hoops.



1886-1907

At the VFA's request, the hoops were changed to vertical stripes. This was so North could be distinguished from Footscray and Geelong.



1908

For one year only, North merged with West Melbourne in an attempt to join the VFL. 

From The North Story: 
"These (new colours) were to consist of blue and white halves with a red sash, the result of a combination of the blue and white of the old North Melbourne Football Club, and the red and white of the recently disbanded West Melbourne Football Club."
 

 

1909

The change for 1909 was to drop the red sash.
