Free State Stars have paid an emotional tribute to their late former player, Richard Henyekane, on the day he would have celebrated his 32nd birthday.
Henyekane passed away in a car accident in April. He was on the books of Ea Lla Koto at the time of his passing.
“The late Free State Stars striker Richard Henyekane would have turned 32 today. It’s five months since Henyekane perished in a tragic car crash, robbing the club of a talented and dedicated professional.
“A very popular figure in the Stars dressing room, the Kimberley Express, as he was affectionately known, was taken away from us too soon.
“Gone but never forgotten. Richard Henyekane, forever in our hearts!,” Stars wrote on the club’s official website.
