THE soccer fraternity in the metro has been saddened by the sudden death on Tuesday of one of the leading Northern Areas administrators, Gerald Korkie, 57.
Korkie captained Swallows in his playing days and then turned to administration. He was the chairman of the club when he died.
NMB soccer secretary Phakamile Daca said: “Gerald will never be forgotten for his tireless efforts, commitment and dedication to build the careers and future of players in the Northern Areas.”
He is survived by his wife Charmaine, three children and two grandchildren. The funeral will take place at the Audrey Renecke church in West End at 11am tomorrow.
