Hymie Kloner (23 May 1929 July 2010).  Kloner was a was a South African professional footballer who won four caps for his national team and who played in the Football League for Birmingham City.  He played as a right half.  Kloner was born in Lithuania, the son of Jewish parents. The family emigrated to South Africa when Kloner was a boy. Though his parents were not keen on his playing football, the principal of the Jewish Government School encouraged him, and he eventually played for the Marist Brothers club.  In June and July 1950, the 21-year-old Kloner played four matches for the South Africa national football team against a touring Australia team.

Later that year he came to England as he was taken on by Birmingham City, and played once in the Football League, on 2 December 1950, standing in for Len Boyd in the Second Division game away to Leeds United which Leeds won 30. Kloner returned to South Africa that same month, and continued his football career domestically. He played representative football for Southern Transvaal, and in 1954 played against a touring Israeli team.

The Yiddish word for circle is kikel. Before long the immigration inspectors were calling anyone who signed with an O in place of an X, a kikel or kikeleh or kikee or, finally and succinctly, kike.
