There are no words to describe the humanity, passion and dedication of a man that has literally given his life and soul to this club. Players, coaches and staff come and go over the years, but Mr A remained loyal no matter the changes at the club.
He has seen young boys grow into men over and over again, always giving each one a piece of advice of what they needed to do, to succeed in life and in their careers.
He has not only served the club but football at large on South African soil. Every football lover in the country, young and old, know Mr A.
It was not an exception but a rule to see Mr A working through all hours of the night to ensure our team was always well prepared for match day. Such was his pride in what he did, that every shirt and sock would receive his attention. He always cared about the detail, never wanted a finger to be pointed in his direction. Packing the containers for our away trips, started 2 or 3 days prior to our travelling, often packing extra kit just in case something went wrong.
It is one area at the club that needed no attention from management as everyone knew that all was clockwork in that department.
It is with sadness that we all wish Mr A farewell. We all hoped that this day would never come but time doesn’t stand still.
We, the current management, staff and players and on behalf of all those he served at the club in the past four decades, wish Mr A, a happy and healthy retirement. We will miss you but we know that your spirit will forever be present at Ikamva.
Thank you, Mr A, we salute you!
