Blackburn recalls McCarthy, Mokoena’s glory days on trip down memory lane

BLACKBURN, England, November 6– English football club Blackburn Rovers recalled the goalscoring feats of former SA players on their facebook page as they took a trip down memory lane over the weekend.
 
Blackburn staged their Remembrance Day commemorations ahead of their FA Cup first-round clash against Barnet on Saturday at Ewood Park.
 
Benni McCarthy (109 appearances) and Aaron Mokoena (101) were mentioned as scoring memorable goals in FA Cup matches – McCarthy against Arsenal in 2007, and Mokoena against Sunderland in 2009.
 
As a mark of respect, the two teams formed a guard of honour and a minute’s silence took place prior to kick-off.
