Football is full of cliches but today the football community truly has lost one of its pioneers! Cyriĺle Regis paved the way for so many black footballers playing today. He endured racial taunts and overcame them so much so that many playing today couldn’t even fathom; rising to the top of his profession, representing his country at a time when even a section of his own fans booed him.
Cyriĺle truly was a gentleman that paved the way. We at Continental Star benefited from his support over the years and we are both grateful and thankful.
All those involved at Continental Star send out our condolences to the Regis family.
