Ex- Flying Eagles Goalkeeper Raymond King Is Dead

A former Flying Eagles goalkeeper, Raymond King, is dead. He died on Monday after suffering a partial stroke which lasted for some days.

Before his death, the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria, SWAN, Ogun State Chapter, was trying to raise funds for his treatment.

The deceased was a goalkeeper trainer for Gateway FC of Ogun State, but his appointment was terminated alongside other technical crew members of the club, following poor performances. He has since remained jobless over eight years after the sack.

King was a goalkeeper for the Flying Eagles between 1979 and 1980.


  1. This is so sad. I was there when one of his sons received the news, he was just rolling on floor and cried like a baby. Couldn't help but cried too. May God rest his soul

  2. Rest in peace. Your country failed you
