Bernard Broens dies on 24th birthday

It is with great sadness that we take leave of Bernard Broens. Bernard, one of the Stellenbosch club’s best players, and a member of the club committee in the past year, committed suicide on his birthday on Wednesday, by jumping off the Gourits river bridge. At this stage, I have no information on what prompted his action.

I believe I speak for all the club regulars when I say he was a popular and valued player at the club, and that this event causes a great sadness among us. Our deepest condolences also go out to Bernard’s family.
