F-17 Academy Mourns The Loss Of Ameer Ryyan

It is with deep regret and sadness that we report the passing of one of our own, Ameer Ryyan.

Ryyan was a well- behaved boy, loved by all who knew him. The affable Ryyan was one of our promising budding talents.

To his parents, he was the perfect son who never disappointed. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family during this difficult period.

Our thoughts and prayers are also for the other deceased & missing in Kinabalu. Our condolences to families who lost their loved ones in the Kinabalu tragedy.

F-17 is in a state of mourning.

When Wendy and I first heard that there were children missing on that mountain after the earthquake, we hoped and prayed that they would return back to their parents safely. I then found out that one of my own football students, Ameer Ryyan was on that mountain. I immediately tried to contact his parents and asked my F-17 team to keep me updated.

And when news broke that he was one of those who lost their lives, I was devastated. I had really hoped to witness Ameer Ryyan’s rise in football. He had all the right ingredients, a good attitude, fitness, discipline, skills and parents who loved him dearly and really supported his dreams. It is truly a sad day for me and my F-17 team. We lost a child. We lost one of our own.

I would like to extend my deepest condolences to Ameer Ryyan’s parents, Sanjay and Anita. Great supportive parents. My team is in contact with his family and we are doing all we can to assist them in this very difficult period.

To all who lost their loved ones in this tragedy, may you be given the strength, patience, peace and love required to take you through this most difficult ordeal.

I mourn with you.
