Sanlam Hall Of Fame

Hlongwane, Sono, or Johanneson?

The Sanlam My Choice Hall of Fame keeps rolling and tumbling and we keep respecting our legends week by week.
 
Here are this weeks nominee's for the Sanlam My Choice Hall of Fame:
 
Eric Sono.
"Scara" is a nickname that has been afforded to a number of footballers through the years, however, one of the originals was Jomo Sono's father - Eric. He was one of the most iconic figures in the 50's and 60's as the captain of Orlando Pirates.  He was said to be one of the most loved and famous figures to have ever played football in South Africa. "Scara" Sono tragically died in a car accident in 1964 at the age of 27. Reports from the wake of his funeral state that his funeral was the most highly attended in the history of the greater Johannesburg area up until that point.
 
Albert Johanneson 
Another player who put South Africa in the history books and on the map was Johanneson. He was the first black man of any nationality to play top flight football in England, as well as the first African player to play in a FA Cup final. He was born in Germiston but died in Leeds. He spent the majority of his career with Leeds United, and the remainder in York City. 
 
 
Thomas Hlongwane 
“Who’s Fooling Who” is a name that will forever remain the hearts of any die-hard Moroka Swallows fan. Born in Hammanskraal, he was signed by Swallows from Arcadia Shepards in 1982 for a record breaking R22 000. He won the Golden Boot award in 1986 and is one of the original players to be part of the 100 goal club. Who’s Fooling Who was coaching Mamelodi Sundowns development when he died of Leukemia in 2006.
