Durban City HW, ref. 120 #PlaySubbuteo #Subbuteo

Una ref. che somiglia un poco alla ref. 63, il Montrose. Ma le fasce orizzontali sono tre invece di due. Ha giocato anche con una maglia fasciata come la ref. 11, QPR, ma con i pantaloncini sempre blu e non bianchi.

La squadra riprodotta dal catalogo Subbuteo si è sciolta nel 1988. Un nuovo Durban City si è formato nel 2009.
