Surinam 1960

Hoofdklasse

At the beginning of May, military side M.V.V. (nicknamed "De 
Beer") withdrew from the league because of having lost a number
of players who had moved to the Netherlands.

In the second week of May, Robinhood, Coronie Boys, Sonny Boys
and Leo Victor withdrew because the S.V.B. refused a discussion
on raising their share of the ticket receipts, halting the
league for some weeks.  After these clubs returned, Voorwaarts
requested the S.V.B. deduct these clubs 2 points for each match
they did not show and refused to play league matches until 
receiving an answer to that request.

    of Leo Victor's 2-2 draws); total goal difference +1 (due
    to error with match between Robinhood and Sonny Boys)

Coronie Boys     1-0 Sonny Boys

On August 26, the S.V.B. decided to annul the 1960 league
championship on the request of the four bottom clubs, Coronie
Boys, Transvaal, Voorwaarts and Sonny Boys, who had no realistic
chance to finish first or second, and against the wish of the
two leading teams, Robinhood and Leo Victor.  As a consequence,
no relegation took place, and M.V.V. were allowed to enter the 
Hoofdklasse in 1961.
