On behalf the NSL Executive Committee and all member clubs, Premier Soccer League (PSL) chairman Dr Irvin Khoza has paid tribute to the late former football administrator Mr Anthony Reeves and former footballer Mr Mark Byrne.

Reeves, a former Safa Executive Committee member and former President of Safa Johannesburg died of a heart attack on Saturday morning, while Byrne lost a long battle with cancer.

Byrne, Hellenic president, was born in a passionate and committed football family and made a major contribution in enhancing the stature of the local game.
