Southern Suburbs F.C.
During the seasons of 1962 and 1963 they were a power and their team included such players as Freddie Kalk, "Chookie" Louw, that poacher of goals Johnnie James and centre half Bobby Howe.
A lean spell followed until fostered by Mr. Dick Upton they went into the high transfer market and bought from England players of the ilk of Roy Bailey, Des Horne, Maltby, Robertson, Tony Smith and Brian Orrit.
Local signings were Ron Matthews and Arne Bjornstad from Boksburg and Shuttleworth from East Rand which made them one of the most powerful combinations in the country.
The results were seen in the 1967 season by them winning the National Shield and reaching the U.T.C. Bowl and finishing fourth in the League.
