[*1] in 1968 reported to have been founded on Aug 14, 1927 by some members of
     existing club Rozendaal (then in difficulties) and to have been the third
     oldest club on Aruba after Wilhelmina and Vitesse (both from Oranjestad);
     other sources list the foundation date as Feb 18, 1938, but this is
     apparently a confusion with the day the clubs' statutes were approved by
     the gouverneur, on Feb 18, 1928.
[*2] founded as A.B.C. (Aruba's Beste Club); changed name to R.C.A. in 1937.

    (also from Curaçao, on May 21), losing both matches 0-2.
