Cricket

Cricket has been offered at the College since 2007 and our 1st team took to the field in 2009. Currently seven teams are fielded; three senior teams and an A and B team in the junior age groups.

Cricket has grown immensely since 2007. During the first and third terms the teams play in the Northerns Cricket Union’s leagues. The 1st team started their journey in the F-league and has done exceptionally well by progressing to the B-league in 2017. The u/14A and u/15A sides currently also play in the B-league. In 2018 the u/15A side won their league by winning all their matches. We are confident that they will soon compete in the A-league.

In 2015 the College produced its first provincial player with Olebogeng Buffel representing the Northerns Titans u/15 side. Nathan Jooste also made the Titans u/15 side in 2016. Olebogeng also represented the provincial u/17 team in 2016 and 2017. We are also very proud of Merrick Brett who represented the Northens u/17 in 2018 national week.

The annual inter-house cricket festival between the three houses is a highlight.

Few schools have the facilities we are blessed with. They include modern nets and four top class fields. We are also fortunate to have well-trained ground staff who prepare the fields and pitches. Furthermore our coaches are skilled and dedicated. We are in the privileged position that Pierre de Bruyn and NBYC will be running our high performance programme from the start of 2019, looking after our top players.
