Kirstenhof Primary School proved themselves worthy winners as both their teams took top honours at the 9th annual Wynberg-Sporting Chance Cricket Super Skills held at Wynberg Boys’ High School on Friday.  The school, which believes in the importance of sport to teach about teamwork and healthy competition, saw their u11 and u13 teams outclass the opposition bearing testament to being capable batsmen, bowlers and fielders, on a day when ideal weather conditions complemented the fantastic day out.

Several familiar faces were spotted as some of the boys were making a repeat appearance.  Their eager expressions told a tale, as they enjoyed being back at the Jacques Kallis Cricket Oval.  Another recognisable face was that of Wynberg Old Boy Richard Levi, who took time out to impart some of the magic that has seen him become an instrumental figure in SA cricket to the players.

For the cricketing enthusiasts, there were superb prizes from Nelco Cricket, with bats, gloves, helmets and bags on offer to the winning teams in the respective categories.  Kirstenhof certainly scored big in the prizes stakes, all worth it for calming their nerves to triumph in their tense finals!  The Hi-Tec Inspirational minute proved popular, with spot prizes given at random times during the afternoon.  Parents and teachers enjoyed the afternoon from the comfort of the Tribakery and Rockets tent, while the kids enjoyed their Powerades and reading between stations provided by SA Cricket magazine.

It showed itself to be a day bigger than the cricket, with many friendships forming as children from the respective schools and clubs were seen interacting with each other as the afternoon wore on.

Thanks to NS Cricket, Hi-Tec, Tribakery, Rockets Compression Sportswear, SA Cricket magazine, Peninsula Beverages and Supersport Let’s Play for their support as we celebrated school boy cricket.
