"Rivalries" . that's the title of the thread that a fan named Wellington_sc started on the Charleston Battery's forum located on It was a dark and stormy night in mid-April 2000. Well, actually, it was in the morning and the temperature in Charleston was probably already near 80 and the mosquitoes were out in force looking for some breakfast. That first modest post spelled out an idea that 3 teams; the Atlanta Silverbacks, Charleston Battery and Raleigh Express should play each other in a series of matches and the resulting winner be awarded a cup. It would "generate interest in soccer and the A-league in these communities". It was, as Wellington said in that conceptual post, "Just an idea". Yes, only one fan with one idea. 'Ol Wellington .. just bumping up his sizeable post count. Thrown out into the electronic compost pile we call the internet. However, his one idea took root and grew quickly. Within a week and 15 or so posts, the groundwork was essentially laid and the details agreed to. The Southern Derby baby was born.
