Ahhh, them were the days.
I can remember when I started playing for South in the late 50's.
Only Forestville Stadium existed then. Most of the teams took footy club names. We all trained at Forestville. North were at one end of the court whilst South trained at the other.
From memory the 8 clubs were;
Sturt (not the fore runner of today's Sturt which was originally the United Church club)
Vytis (Lithuanian Club)
There was also a strong Association playing at the OBI.
A merger took place in 1960. Games were played at Forestville as the District comp.
Budapest and ALS (Latvian Club) from the OBI joined the District grade along with Norwood who replaced Glenelg.
Interestingly, the 1960 Australian Olympic team also played in the comp that year. All the players transferred to Adelaide prior to the Olympics and played each team as part of their training.
As I said, them were the days.
