Home Ground: Plantation Rd, Korara
About the Club
Northern Storm Football Club was established in February 1994 as Korora Soccer and Sports Club. With expansion, the club name was changed in 2004, at which point the York Street playing fields began to be used in conjunction with the already-used Plantain Road Oval (‘The Cove’) at Korora.
‘The Cove’ is the club’s Senior home ground, and the Men’s Premier League and Reserves Grades play their home matches there, along with competitive age juniors.
Northern Storm prides itself on being a family club and looking after all ages. We currently have players aged from 5 years to 60+ years, some of whom have been with the club for more than 15 years.
Through the years the club has gone from strength to strength and risen to our current position as one of the largest clubs on the north coast of NSW with over 380 players. Northern Storm are proud to be included in the new Coastal Premier League competitions, and will field teams with an exciting combination of experience and youth.
