Johnny Sitharam presents soccer legend, Russia Naidoo with the lifetime achievement award for his contribution to soccer in Isipingo and Durban South.

The South African Football Association in Isipingo, under the presidency of soccer legend Russia Naidoo, staged a successful soccer Knock Out Cup finals, recently.

The competition was sponsored by Hollywood Bets who paid homage to the contribution made by  Naidoo in ensuring that football thrived in Isipingo, even after the collapse of the Mid-South Coast in the 1990’s.

Many of the residents remember the Isipingo Districts Football Association which served the community of Isipingo for over 75 years.

Naidoo kept the football flag flying high during this dark period and remained dedicated towards his love for the game. He was honoured by the LFA and sponsors with a commendation award.
