1958/59 Sturt d North This Sturt club dropped out 1962
1959 North d Torrens
1959/60 West d Torrens
1960 ALS d Budapest ALS Latvians became ASK
1960/61 West d South
1961 Budapest d ASK Budapest became Norwood
1961/62 North d Torrens
1962 Budapest d ASK
1962/63 Budapest d South
1963 South d Budapest

Women K-Jets were strong pretty sure they wore green and white gingham check tops. They were one of the teams that melded into Norwood back in mid to late sixties.
