Cape Town Stalwart Calls It Quits

After 37 years of being behind-the-scenes, Cape Town Spurs kit manager Albert Hendricks has retired.

Hendricks has been involved in South African football for almost four decades, working at Spurs since 1984. He was the kit manager of Ajax Cape Town through their entire 21 years of existence.

The club’s CEO Alexi Efstathiou also announced that he will be inducted as an honorary life member of the club.

“It is the end of an era, I never wanted this time to come. You always feel like there is more time left but that isn’t the case,” Hendricks told the club’s website.

“It is a heartbreaking moment for me, but it is the reality of life and I have to accept that. I have to make way for the younger generation.

“The next few weeks will be difficult. Sometimes we think we will live to be 100 or 200 years old, but the body doesn’t allow you to go that far.

“I will miss the club, I will feel emotional but I’ve prepared myself for this day.”

iDiski Times wishes ‘Mr A’ the best in retirement, and thanks him for his service.
