AUGUST 1959 Ð WHY SHOULDNÕT WE START OUR OWN PRO SOCCER?. SAED:SPORTS:SOCCER:DRUM AUGUST 1959 Ð Why shouldnÕt we start our own Pro Soccer? Ð It was a dusty afternoon of soccer trials at JohannesburgÕs Bantu Football Ground. There were a scattered few hundreds spectators. If this had been top class pro-soccer, thousands would have rolled up to witness all the games. Soccer is our National Game, but what a mess it has got into. Standards are falling away, administration need a boost. Why donÕt we try a drastic medicine, why donÕt we try playing professional soccer league? (Photograph by Ian Berry ©Baileys Archives) NEG 2324
