Nomads mourn former English mentor Eddie May

Mighty Wanderers  have mourned the death of its former English Coach Eddie May who  is dead.

“We are saddened that we lost one of our mentors. He was a true Nomad,” Wanderers official George Chamangwana said.

Nomads supporters have sent their condolence message to the May family through local radio.

Mighty Wanderers became the first club to hire a white coach under the sponsorship of Malawi Telecommunications Limited which aborted the club two seasons ago.

Meanwhile, Wanderers have postponed their Golden Jubilee celebrations which were scheduled for April 28, according to the club’s general secretary David Kanyenda.

May: Dead

May among other clubs coached Cardiff in England which was playing in the division 2, Highlanders of Zimbabwe and other clubs in South Africa and Kenya.

During his football career, he played for South end, Chicago, Welsh and Swansea among other clubs as a defender.

On 2 October 2000 he was appointed as coach to the South African side Bush Bucks.
He had previously coached the Zimbabwean side Jets and a side in Kenya.

He quit the Bucks on 14 November, the reason cited being problems with his work permit, although it followed a confrontation with his assistant Mlungisi Ngubane which led to Ngubane resigning.

He later became manager of Ugandan side Express, but was sacked on 14 May 2001 after a poor start to the league season.

In July 2001 he was appointed manager of Zimbabwean side Highlanders. He won two league titles with Highlanders.

He has died at the age of 68.
