To Minsk "Dynamo" - 85 years!
In February 1923 the group of military men of armies GPUof the Moscow district has started working out of the project of the organisation of a sports society which has been founded on April, 18th, 1923 and has received the name "the Moscow proletarian sports society"Dynamo". On July, 16th the same year MPSO"Dynamo"has received the legal documents confirming, that the society will cultivate all kinds of sports. In Moscow work on involving, basically security officers and military men, in members of a society has begun.
By an example of Moscow, a society "Dynamo" began to be created in other cities of RSFSR and sister republics. For activity coordination the organisations of "Dynamo", in Moscow Main board "Dynamo" which became supervising body of a society on October, 8th, 1924 has been created.
"The Belarus proletarian sports society" Dynamo "is organised in March, 1925 and totals now to 500 members. Branches" Dynamo "are available in all district cities of Belarus. In" the Dynamo "there is also a football section. Members of the unions and Red Army men" can be members of a society "Dynamo" only. (The newspaper "Звязда" from 27.11.1925)
From other documents (the report of session VSFK at SNK BSSR, September 1923) it is visible, that representative BPSO"Dynamo" took part in work of a high council of physical training.
It is now difficult to establish exact date of creation of the Belarus proletarian sports society "Dynamo", after all practically archival documents has not remained.
Not easier to establish and exact date of the basis of a soccer team of Minsk "Dynamo".
Very long time in various football directories and books year of the basis of a command named differently. 1928 when the first official championship of republic on football in which commands "Dynamo" from Minsk have taken part, Gomel, Orsha has begun, Vitebsk, Mogilyov, Bobruisk, Мozyr and Polotsk was considered as the most widespread variant.
But at work with archival materials it was revealed, that else in 1927 the soccer team of Minsk "Dynamo" held meetings with commands of other cities.
"On July, 18th in Smolensk the football match between commands" the Dynamo "Minsk and Smolensk has taken place. The match has terminated in favour of the Minsk command with the account 2:1. In the first хавтайме Minsk has played 2:0, in the second 0:1. From a technical aspect the match has passed безукоризнено". (The newspaper "Звязда" from 23.06.1927)
And here that has placed "Чырвоная змена" on the pages about this match: "After a four-year-old break Minsk has again started to practise football games with commands of other cities. The first soccer team Minsk" the Dynamo "left to Smolensk for a meeting with a soccer team Smolensk" the Dynamo ". A result - 2:1 in favour of Minsk".
Apparently from avaricious newspaper reports, even in the summer of 1927 Minsk "Dynamo" led football matches.
As acknowledgement it is served also by other note published in "Звязде" from July, 1st: " On June, 26th at stadium in Orsha the match of the best command of Gomel (Залинейной) with a command "Dynamo" (Minsk) has taken place. On a match was more than 1000 spectators. From the very beginning the initiative at the Minsk command. On 25th minute the first ball is hammered into gate of Gomel. All diligence of Gomel to make even the account broke about fine protection of Minsk. It is necessary to note game in defence back, havbacs Makliayev and Loveyko, the attacking Tikhomirov, Grigoriev and Savich (which has hammered in two goals into gate of Gomel) and beautiful game of the goalkeeper of Minsk Kuzmin. The second time has begun vigorous attacks of the Gomel gate. As a result to Gomel it has been hammered three more balls. In the course of all game advantage in the technician and teamwork of the Minsk command was visible. At the same time, it is necessary to note beautiful and exact game central хавбека Gomel Labkovsky and back Poliakov. The goalkeeper of Gomel easy and confidently played. The match has made on spectators favourable impression ".
On July, 9th 1927г. The big long-distance football matches have taken place. And responses about game of Minsk "Dynamo" were far not flatter. "Minsk" has lost to Gomel two matches. "The loss reason - bad interaction of the Minsk command" - such heading decorated in "Star" (from 12.07.1927г.) reports on these games.
"The match Minsk (" the Dynamo ") - Minsk (Залинейный р-н) has taken place in Gomel at railway stadium. Both commands played the first time with equal success and has ended with the account 1:1. In the second time, the initiative of game has completely come over to the side of football players of Gomel. In a command" the Dynamo "was observed bad interaction of players which was expressed in individual game of everyone. Protection of Minsk has badly played. The second time has terminated with the account 4:1 in favour of Gomel. In the Gomel command beautifully played an attack. Result of a match 2:5 in favour of Gomel".
"On 10th of July at city stadium there was a match" the Dynamo "(Minsk) - a city command (Gomel). The city command of Gomel played collectively and amicably. By beautiful combinations to gate of Minsk already in the first time it has been spent two balls. Protection of Minsk strongly limped. In a current of the first minutes the Minsk command managed to win back one ball. Further the second ball has been hammered into gate of Gomel. By the end of game players of Gomel managed" to present "to Minsk the third and last ball. Thus the match has terminated with the account 2:3 in favour of Gomel. It is necessary to note full impreparation of the Minsk command". ("Звязда" from 17.07.1927г.)
Remains a riddle - as for 12 days минчане have lost all game potential, and have lost both matches.
In the end of July 1927. On platform "Profintern" in Minsk, within the limits of the Minsk district holiday of physical culture Minsk "Dynamo" accepted command N-skoj of a cavalry division. In persistent struggle "Dynamo" has conceded with the account 1:3.
"The football match of the best Minsk commands on July, 26th has taken place:" the Dynamo "- N-skaja a cavalry division - 1:3 (0:0). The first time the beginning a vigorous attack" the Dynamo ", which all time "sat " on divisions collars . Only thanks to good protection of soldiers the first time has ended in a draw 0:0. In the second time the initiative at first too was at" the Dynamo "and on 49th minute they have opened the account. Next minute the command of a cavalry division has gone over to the offensive and almost with equal intervals in gate" Dynamo "have been hammered three balls. From players it is necessary to note the goalkeeper of soldiers Barbe, who has shown beautiful game and Мorozov. On a match was more than 1000 fans". ("Звязда" from 28.07.1927г.)
And here is how "Savetsky Belarus" has described on the pages this match: "Dynamo" (Minsk) a-cavalry division - 1:3. On 4th minute of the second time "Dynamo" opens the account. There and then the cavalry division takes game in hand and conducts it up to the end, having hammered in three goals. The referee of a match - Urul".
On III Vsebelorussky Games which were passing in August, as a part of a national team of Minsk on football eight players of "Dynamo" have gone. This fact says that at that time in Minsk "Dynamo" was the strongest command.
The football season of 1927 has come to the end in September when Minsk "Dynamo" accepted clubmates from Smolensk. "Чырвоная змена" before the match beginning so "has advertised" this meeting: "On Sunday on 11th of September in Minsk there will be last game in this season. There are" Dynamo "(Minsk) and the best command of Smolensk. The match result will show superiority on football in the Western edge".
Game "Dynamo" (Minsk) - " Dynamo" (Smolensk) had companionable character. In the first time visitors had some moments when in collars of Minsk there was no goalkeeper, and still have not hammered. Smolensk shows good teamwork, but cannot show good game in a pass. Have rescued a match some class players who have extremely well held a meeting. At owners it is necessary to note defender Gorshmana who in the most difficult moments well defended gate. As always keeper Kuzmin beautifully played. The first time 1:0 in favour of Smolensk. The second time goes under continuous a pressure of visitors which score the second goal. It is necessary to notice, that Smolensk has shown roughness in game (a ball on a tribune, pushes etc.). In the end of a time owners have hammered in one reciprocal ball. Smolensk has won 2:1".
Such report on last game of a season has placed on the pages "Чырвоная змена" (from 13.11.1927).
