History

Introduction

The name - Linhill - was derived from the border suburbs, "Linmeyer" and "The Hill".

Linhill was created for the community of Southern Johannesburg to play, enjoy and develop football in a safe environment.

Football at Linhill has always been conducted in a mixed environment with equal opportunities for all communities.

Football development and assistance to children from financially disadvantaged backgrounds has always been a feature of the club.

Over the years, this support has been made possible by the generous help from parents and sponsors.
