Just checked the whole thread and can't believe I missed out. :shock:

I was born in the same town in Lancashire in England as the well known Zulu, Johnny Clegg.

It is a short train & bus ride from Old Trafford.

My father took a job in Joburg when I was 7, and before long we were regular Kruger visitors.

5 years later we moved to Cape Town. I am a true blue Stormers/Cobras/WP fan, but my blood is red....or green!

I am South African, born and grew up in Kroonstad, moved to Cape Town 1971, then to Knysna 1988, back to Cape Town 1999 and still here. Hmmmmz should maybe have considered the distance to Kruger from CT when planning or is that bad planning. :whistle:

Saffie here. Born in Pretoria, moved to Joburg 1986 and still here after a few attempts at living overseas which didn't quite pan out because of the call of the bush :)

Location: Johannesburg
Born in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) of Capetonian parents. Grew up in Salisbury (Harare) and emigrated to Cape Town in September 1976. Moved to Johannesburg early 1982 and been here ever since. Now a naturalised South African citizen, married to a born-and-bred Jo'burger!

Plan is to move closer to Kruger - perhaps Malelane or Komatipoort - when we both retire in a couple of years.

At least the Prem trophy was loaned briefly just across the city, and not stolen by Londoners, and even worse, the scousers.

DHL has already been sent to bring it back home. :wink:

Born in SA - grew up in Jhb and then went to Cape Town after university to do my accounts training.
While in Cape Town i met a potential Mrs Yoda. But that ended badly. So i came to he UK for what i thought would be just a few months to clear my head.
14 years later...... I am married with 2 kids, and my life is here now.


BB, btw, the premiership trophy does belong in London. If only Mr Wenger would spend some £££££

I am also a London-living Arsenal fan! Wenger is a legend - I reckon his hands are tied by the board...

I was born in Port Elizabeth, grew up in Rome, Bangkok, Bath and Birmingham and I am married to a Brit. We found out that her Great great grandfather was a Xhosa from PE, so it is a small world! We thought she was English as they come...

I am officially a dual citizen and one day we will move to South Africa I am sure, although it probably won't be PE!
