Moroka Swallows FC extends a word of appreciation to the Maseko family for having allowed Andries “Six Mabone” to serve The Birds and entertain Millions of Football followers during his lifetime. Maseko joined Swallows at the age of 17years in 1972 and played for the club until 1983 when he moved to Benoni United at a record transfer fee of the time amounting to R25,000.
Moroka Swallows family will always remember him as one of those who have contributed to rich history of the club and that of South African Football in general. During his carreer at Swallows, the club lifted four trophies: in 1974 Ohlsson’s Challenge Cup, 1975 and 1978 BP Top8 and the Mainstay Cup in 1983. He has left us with a record still to be broken of having scored 8 of the 13 goals in a game against the now defunct Umlazi Citizen at Sinaba Stadium in 1974. We are proud of his contribution and we will always honour and remember him.
We send our warm and deepest love to the Maseko family during this time of bereavement and we say to them it can only be God almighty who can heal and restore their broken hearts. MAY HIS SOUL REST IN EVERLASTING PEACE .
