Stellenbosch FC have announced the untimely passing of promising young defender, Oshwin Andries.
“The Club is not in a position to provide further information at this stage and asks that his family’s privacy is respected in this difficult time of bereavement,” read a statement from the club.
“Andries was a gifted young footballer who graduated from the SFC Academy to make his professional debut at the age of 18.
“He later became the Club’s youngest-ever goalscorer in the DStv Premiership and captained South Africa at the recent U-20 AFCON COSAFA qualifiers.
“His presence, both on the pitch and off it, will be sorely missed. The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Stellenbosch F.C. are with his family, friends and loved ones.”
Meanwhile, the Premier Soccer League (PSL) has announced that the League will observe a moment of silence at this week’s DStv Diski Challenge, DStv Premiership, Motsepe Foundation Championship, and Nedbank Cup fixtures commencing on Sunday.
“The League sends heartfelt condolences to the Andries family, Stellenbosch FC, and the football fraternity at large,” read a statement from the PSL.
