Dancing shoes was there

It is interesting how many people are asking about those who lost out. I stumbled accross this question, on a website_

Bernard Hartze Where Are You?

Can Anyone Please Help Me Contact South African Footballer Bernard Hartze
Does he still live in Africa?
It is regarding his football/soccer career in the United States of America, in 1975 he played for the TAMPA BAY ROWDIES in the North American Soccer League (NASL).
Please could you leave a private message, if you can help me.
Many Thanks

Thats good but for  many it is too late. They are dead and we must ensure that they are remembered for  their contribution to non racialism in society. IN the old FPL we supported Bluebells United. We loved Bells but  have to turn my mind around and recollect, it was for the type of football they played and their fight for sports facilities and equality in sports and society. If I recall correctly, we rarely won major tournaments but we were happy…
