Soccer News


The cover of ‘Soccer News’ features three Lilywhite Legends: Paul Rennell (player looking sideways) and Billy de Graaf (#10) and Colin Latimour (#5).

All three Eastern Suburbs players shown in the photo achieved All White status: Billy de Graaf won 22 All White caps, Colin Latimour 22 and Paul Rennell was capped on four occasions.


'Soccer News' was a monthly magazine published a number of decades ago. The game on the cover was played during the first ever National League season and the game: Eastern Suburbs v Hungaria played on 27th July 1970 at Newmarket Park. Suburbs won the game 2-1, Lilywhite scorers were Billy de Graaf and the win was secured with an own goal from Hungaria.
