Heinrich 'Heiner' Stuhlfauth was a familiar and formidable figure in German football in the 1920s. The 1 FC Nuremberg goalkeeper played 606 first team matches for the club. He won five German titles (1920, 1921, 1924, 1925 and 1927) and also took part in the remarkable 1922 final in which SV Hamburg and 1FC Nuremberg could not be separated over 4 hrs of football (no winner that year!)
Stuhlfauth also played 21 games for Germany (from debut against Sweden on 27.06.1920 to his finale v Italy on 02.03.1930- including 2 appearances at the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam). Germany won 8 drew 5 and lost 8 with Stuhlfauth in goal.
