It has come to my attention that we have tragically lost one of our number. Michael da Costa, who posted on the site as “Miguel”, tragically lost his life in June this year after being hit by a car in Port Elizabeth.
Michael was a lovely guy and a hugely passionate Sharks supporter. He lived in Welkom and was the chairman of the local Sharks Supporters Club there, going down to Durban to attend games at the Shark Tank as often as he could. He wasn’t a very frequent visitor here at Sharksworld, but contributed a number of articles to our cause over the last few years.
Michael worked in Welkom at a local church and was widely respected within the local community for his Christian outreach programme. He was hit by a car after attending the Portugal v Ivory Coast match in the Football World Cup on 15 June 2010 and passed away a few days later. Michael would have turned 21 years old today.
Our sincerest condolences go out to the da Costa family and to all of Michael’s many friends and loved ones. He will be missed and my sincerest apologies for the lateness of this tribute.Tweet
