R.I.P George Hadjidakis 26/06/04
Former Hellenic owner George Hadjidakis has passed away at the age of 59.

Hadjidakis, who was in Greece at the time of his death, had been at the helm at the Cape Town side for over 20 years, before selling the club earlier this season to Dumisani Ndlovu of First Division side Premier United.

Hadjidakis was one of the true characters of South African football, and will be sorely missed by the soccer fraternity.

Hellenic were formed in 1958 and entered the professional league in the late 1960's.

In their early years they played their games at the Hartleyvale and Green Point Stadiums and a number of overseas stars, such as Bobby Moore, Gordon Banks, Ian St John, Walter da Silva and Pat van den Hauwe all made appearances for the Greek Gods.

The team enjoyed one of their most successful spells when they were coached by Budgie Byrne, never finishing lower than eighth place in his almost 20 years in charge.

It was during that time that some of the club's best players emerged, with the likes of the Das Neves brothers, Reggie Jantjies, Mark Williams and Grant Young making a great impression on the league in that time.

Our condolences go out to the Hadjidakis family.
