Cape Town- Cape Town has lost one of its gifted young soccer talents with the death of Ajax Cape Town defender Cecil Lilo, Mayor Patricia de Lille said on Sunday .

He was one of two men killed in a head-on collision just before midnight on Saturday.

“I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of this young man,” De Lille said in a statement.

“This is a great loss to his team and he will undoubtedly be missed for his contribution to soccer.”

She also extended her sympathies to the family of the other man killed in the incident.

Western Cape emergency services spokesperson Robert Daniels said a VW Golf GTI collided with a bakkie on Spine Road, just off the N2 highway near Khayelitsha.

“It is with great sadness that we confirm the passing of our brave warrior Cecil Lolo this morning. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Lolo,” the club said on its Facebook page.

The club said it would release an official statement later. Lolo had been with the club since 2010.
