Durban City F.C.
At first they shared with Durban United the ground at Hoy Park but later moved to Old Kingsmead and eventually to the ground at New Kingsmead Stadium.
Every trophy came their way except the National Shield. The team for the first three seasons contained eight Springboks and the forward line contained Le Roux, Moffat, Salton, Deetliffs and George Barrett, possibly the best attack seen in South African club soccer.
They were badly hit in 1962 when their trio of stars, Salton, Deetliffs and Le Roux were transferred to Durban United, but judicious buying saw them recover and such players as Chalmers, Willie Allan, John Rugg, Jim Scott, Keith Blackburn and Billy Higgins among others saw them retain their proud place in the National Football League.
After a moderate season in 1966, they finished in a blaze of glory by winning the U.T.C. Bowl in 1967 for the third time.
