By the mid-1930's, soccer clubs in the Sudbury area were importing talent in order to compete against the reigning Falconbridge champions.  The Frood Mine Tigers were the most zealous recruiting team, managing to secure enough players to create a strong club that could challenge the Falconbridge Falcons.
