Spotlight on Soccer, Argus 1950

In 1950, the Argus newspaper produced a series of 18 weekly articles mostly called 'Spotlight on Soccer', focusing on individual soccer clubs around Melbourne. They are a mixed bunch but the give tremendous snapshots of the state of play in Melbourne's elite teams. They also give some useful if brief club histories. Produced on the cusp of the strong emergence of continental European influence on the makeup of Australian soccer they also create a picture that is soon to fade.



Argus mistakenly lists this as #9

#12 Fifers

First played in 1923. 15 teams in the town.
