|The English club side Chelsea toured Australia in May and June 1965. Fresh from the 1964/5 English First Division season, Chelsea came to Australia with a full strength side that included the likes of English international Barry Bridges and a 22 year old Terry Venables who would go onto be Australian National Team coach for the ill fated 1998 World Cup campaign.|
