Soccer Laduma - - Siyag Bhoza -

The South African foot­ball fra­ter­nity has been dealt yet an­other blow, fol­low­ing the death of Er­rol Burg­ers, a re­spected foot­ball ad­min­is­tra­tor.

In con­firm­ing Burg­ers’ pass­ing last week, the South African Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (SAFA) an­nounced that the 71- year- old passed away on Tues­day morn­ing at the Chris­ti­aan Barnard Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal af­ter suf­fer­ing from stroke.

Burg­ers had been the Pres­i­dent of North­ern Suburbs LFA, while he also served on the Western Prov­ince Foot­ball Board, dur­ing the many years of his foot­ball ad­min­is­tra­tion work.

As con­firmed by SAFA, Burg­ers had been awarded a Life­time Achieve­ment Award by the Re­gion in 2016, while he had also been handed Hon­orary Mem­ber­ship in 2017, be­fore be­ing awarded a Life­time Achiever Award by the Cape Town Sport Coun­cil this year for his con­tri­bu­tion to the game.

SAFA Pres­i­dent, Danny Jor­daan, is one of the top foot­ball ad­min­is­tra­tors in the coun­try that re­mem­bered Burg­ers for his con­tri­bu­tion to the lo­cal game when the news of his death broke last week.

Soc­cer Lad­uma send our heart­felt con­do­lences to Burg­ers’ fam­ily dur­ing this dif­fi­cult time of be­reave­ment.
