Durban City Maestro

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He plays in the middle
like it’s June on the reef
with a touch as light as lemon drizzle,
feet which glide upon a thermal
and defenders left in disbelief



As a Fulham fan, there’s one player above all others that I’m likely to write about, but this is at one remove having chatted with a South African friend who regularly watched him.

Interesting to note that his one winner’s medal was for Durban City: overdue, richly deserved and a testament to his loyalty
