The club lifted Bezirksliga Berlin titles in 1955 and 1964, before a further merger took place with the club of the workers; Betriebssportgemeinschaft Elektroproject und Anlagebau Berlin, to form BSG EAB Lichtenberg in 1969.
Neukölln, with a team full of expat Turks, from a few levels down in Kreisliga B were really being put to the sword. Their task was not helped as they had turned up with just one sub. When Güven Akpolat went off injured with a facial wound, he went off and got fixed up before returning. It was probably as well, as he was their only outlet up front.
Once referee Christian Large had blown his whistle for full time, a lone Neukölln official stood by the player’s gate and shook all of his players warmly by the hand; apart from the full back who was still sulking and being ignored by all and sundry.
15-0 was the largest victory I’d ever paid to watch. It was an afternoon that neither I nor the Neukölln team, would forget in a hurry!
