RIP Mark Byrne

The South African football fraternity was hit hard by the sad news of the passing of former player, respected coach and Hellenic club president Mark Byrne on Sunday.

Mr Byrne, the son of the legendary Budgie Byrne (and brother of David, and brother-in-law of Gavin Hunt), was someone who contributed immensely to the local game, playing a role in the development of many young footballers, and current professionals.

From @iDiskiTimes we would like to send our condolences to the Byrne family, friends, the Hellenic community, and the entire football fraternity on the passing of Mr Byrne. His contribution to football has been immense, as a player, coach, mentor and friend.
