DM2009040625:SAED:SPORTS:SOCCER:PERSONALITIES:GCP SEP26 1965 – Pirates’ goalkeepers Joseph “Skhehla” Mncube, makes a dramatic save during the first half with Macford Xulu, Swallows, inside left, pressing in for a header. Five hundred rioting spectators yesterday stopped the big soccer game between Orlando Pirates and Moroka Swallows at the Kliptown Ground. The “riot” was sparked off after two players from Pirates and Swallows had swopped punches. More than 500 fans of both teams then swarmed on to the field and the referee was forced to abandon the game 10 minutes before time. (Photograph by Drum Photographer BAHA) soccer riots
