Durban United F.C.
They became more of a power when they signed Les Salton, Danny Le Roux and Martin Deetliffs in 1962. But honours evaded them until 1964 when Mr. Nikki and Topper Brown joined and their best season followed by winning the U.T.C. Bowl and later the Champion of Champions and they finished third in the League.
In 1966 they won the National Shield and shared the Champion of Champions (played in 1967) with Highlands Park in that hotly disputed goal average affair.
When Mr. Nikki relinquished the chair two well known businessmen, David and Michael Beare, took over.
The United were involved in the record transfer fee for South Africa when they got Bobby Chalmers from Durban City at a fee of R20,000. Other notable players that have worn the green and white shirts are Brian and Keith Petersen, Frankie McGuigan, Peter Baker, Robin Lowe, Alan Gordon, Francis Exall and Arthur Lightening.
