Overall, I say we were robbed of a young prospect, a football beacon, and a promising player who played with much discipline, vigor, and determination.
“He always put maximum effort into his playing and was always a winner, as he yielded more success in the field of play.
He was a striker of high magnitude who always received selection ahead of others; he had the stature to boast in any situation, the skill to torment opponents, the instincts to shoot, and really enjoyed his game.”
He added that it was a day of mourning, a day where a dark cloud hung over their league as they received such bad news. “Today, we are just unlucky to be mourners rather than joyous as a family. Lewis Kundai Magasu, affectionately known as Magasu in football circles, is currently committed to CUT FC in Division 2 and Gunners Social League Club in the Seven Heroes’ Nest. ” Now it’s all memories.
