Post - - SPORT - DHIRSHAN GOBIND

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.
