St. Matthew’s was a U.S. soccer team which played the 1937-38 season in the St. Louis Soccer League, winning the league title.

History[edit]

In 1937, the St. Louis Soccer League was quickly declining. Of the four teams from the previous season, three had left the league. As a result, St. Matthew’s, St. Patrick's and South Side Radio joined Burke's Undertakers, the 1936-1937 champion, for the upcoming season. [1] According to Bob Corbett, an SLSL player with St. Patrick’s and Burke’s, “There seemed to be little interest in the season, only in the cup play.”[2] St. Matthew’s won the league title, but fell to Burke’s in the league cup. At the end of the season, three of the top four scorers came from St. Matthew’s.
