Origins

Cygnet began as Lovett Football Club in 1906, and changed its name to Cygnet in the 1910s.[1]
The Magpies were a member of the Huon Football Association from 1906-1997 when the league disbanded and they joined the SFL in 1998.[2]
Upon entry in the SFL they changed from their longtime Black & White playing strip and Magpie emblem, adopting a Port Adelaide playing strip (black, white and teal) and called themselves 'The Port'.
