SOCCER - THE late Manzini Sea Birds Manager London Dlamini will always be remembered for helping his side climb all the way to the MTN Premier League from the fourth tier of local soccer.

This was revealed by Manzini Sea Birds Chairman Sicelo Mkhonta during the late manager’s funeral yesterday morning in Lobamba.

Mkhonta said they had lost one of their longest serving members, who treated the team like his own family. “London started as a player for the team back in its promotion league days, where he was the captain for many years.

He was with us when we got promoted to the Super League then First Division where we decided to make him the Public Relations Officer (PRO).

This was due to his great interpersonal skills and love for the club.” “He continued to serve as PRO until we were promoted to the Premier League and relegated after five seasons. He never left us until our promotion, where he was now team manager and a huge cog in our well-oiled machine.

We wouldn’t’ have made it this far as a team without his unwavering support and dedication to the club. Football has suffered yet another cruel loss,” he said.

The ex-Premier League of Eswatini executive member, who also spoke on behalf of Dlamini’s employers SwaziMed, said he the organisation had suffered a huge blow as well.

“London was a hard worker and was always in a jolly mood, which made everyone around him enjoy working with him.

The board of directors sent me to share their condolences to the Dlamini family. He has left a huge void in the organisation,” he said.

Dlamini is survived by his wife and three children, having been part of Sea Birds family for over 15 years.
