St George Budapest Soccer Club, or the "Saints" as they were known, enjoyed great success in the sixties and seventies. However, as fate would have it, the club would be controversially omitted from the National Soccer League at the conclusion of the 1990/1991 season. By 1989, the Saints had their final dash for glory, finishing second on the NSL ladder to Marconi Fairfield by six points.
The Saints would lose 1-0 to Sydney Olympic in the preliminary final. Olympic would suffer the same fate a week later in the grand final against Marconi, who were deserved champions.
In 1989, players such as goalkeeper John Filan, Andy Harper, Matthew Bingley and Scott Ollerenshaw had made their mark in the colours of red, white and green. Just two seasons later, the club was axed from the NSL after successive 10th-place finishes. The club has since competed at State-level in various divisions throughout New South Wales.
This design represents the end of top flight soccer for the pioneering Saints. A tribute to one of Australia's most important clubs on the timeline of soccer history.
