THE MAGIC STORY
In 1966, the members of Newcastle's Macedonian Community formed Macedonia Soccer Club. From 1970 to 1972 they played as Broadmeadow Macedonia before being expelled from the competion at the end of 1972.
 
Two years later a new, younger, more enthusiastic committee led by Bobby Lazanovski and Doug Pichaloff was formed. The club they formed was Hamilton Red Star, named after European Champions, Red Star Belgrade. Chris Mangovski was coach for that first season and the following year they played in the NNSW 4th Division winning promotionto 2nd Division in consecutive years in 1978. The arrival in 1979 of Adam Durkot, Slav Catalovski and Chris Kulupach saw promotion to 1st Division in 1980. In 1985 the club was relegated back to 2nd Divsion with a name change to Newcastle Macedonia. In 1995 after a ten year battle, including the restructure of Federation Competions newly re-named Broadmeadow Magic was promoted to 1st Division (now NBN State Soccer League) once again.
 
In Broadmeadow Magic's short NBN State Soccer League history, Magic have won the Minor Premiership three times in 1997, 2001 and this year 2003. Broadmeadow Magic also competed in Grand Finals in 1997 and 1998 with this year 2003 making a third appearence in the end of season decider.
