Western Cape Football Clubs - Edgemead Goodwood Football Club - Edgemead, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

Former Clyde Pinelands players who moved to Edgemead founded the Edgemead Football Club in 1977. A few names that come to mind are Ray Lopes, Graham Clemitson, Keith Ridley, Brian Abrahamse, Gigi van Cuyck, Keith Geils and last but not least, Patrick Yon, who has now been with Edgemead for 33 years.
Word soon got around and it didn't take long before other players joined up and we embarked on a series of friendly games playing in an assortment of colors and at various grounds.
During the 1977 season, official representation was made to the Western Province Football Association that was based at its headquarters at Hartleyvale by three nervous men - Ray Lopes, Graham Clemitson and Neville McCarthy who put forward a compelling case for the official birth of Edgemead F.C.
Initially, it was mooted by the delegates of other clubs that Edgemead should play in the 4th League, but due to the strong force shown by the Edgemead players during friendly games in 1977 and with a little further persuasion, Edgemead was granted entry at the 3rd League Level.
