Bill Williams joined the club in 1918 and was a member for 55 years, until his death in 1973. He won the championship in 1935, and served the club in numerous capacities, including that of Captain of Play.

Williams was a somewhat controversial participant in the 1937 South African championship held in Cape Town, scoring only ½ point from 11 games played. Durban was allocated two out of the 12 places in the event, and these went to Jack Archer (defending SA champion) and to Williams (as 1935 Durban champion) when 1936 Durban champion Huxley St.John-Brooks declined his invitation.


This was the only Williams game I could find. (source: Len Reitstein).
