Celebrating 100 years of history
The 2021 season will be Lower Hutt City’s centenary year. It all started in 1921, when boys from the Hutt Young Men’s Institute decided to form what they called The Lower Hutt Football Club. The club merged with the nearby Railways club in 1967 to become Lower Hutt City AFC.
Lower Hutt City AFC treasurer Mike Yates said 2021 was shaping up to be a big year for the club as it celebrates 100 years of history.
“The centenary is a huge deal. Our celebrations will include football matches across all three days of Queen’s Birthday Weekend and we will also hold an Old-Timers’ Day during that weekend, along with a formal dinner,” Yates said.
To ensure the club’s history was on show across Wellington, the club decided to enlist the help of Football Central to create a special centenary kit that would bring its personality and heritage to life.
