Great team spirit at event to honour Gengan
THE Joe Gengan Invitational Tournament was held at the Northdale Stadium in Pietermaritzburg in honour of the former Pietermaritzburg and District Soccer Association (Padsa) chairperson.
Gengan was pleased with the action in the Over 50 Veteran’s Cup, a competition played in his honour.
The event drew four teams and also comprised past players.
The teams were named in honour of four former local legends of the game, who served with Gengan in various roles over the past decades.
“The event was the brainchild of my sons Adrian and Bremner to honour me while I am still around, instead of waiting for a memorial event like everyone else,” a delighted Gengan said, while expressing his deep appreciation.
“It was very successful and we are hoping to do it bigger and better next year.”
He said he and his family would like to thank the following sponsors: Safeway Safety & Industrial Supplies; F3 Enterprises; Asian Trading; The Ronnie Naidoo Family; Haffejees Service Station; Duggie Chetty; David Pillay; Fayaz Ismail; Newholmes Catering; Fusion lounge; EMS Designs; Gengan Enterprises; and Arctic Amanzi for making the tournament possible.
