Wynberg Boys’ High School Cricket – 1st XI

A sincere thank you to everyone involved with Wynberg Cricket during the course of this season.

Wynberg Cricket remains strong due to your commitment, dedication and support: our loyal fans, at matches and online, our sponsors, the hours spent by coaches, managers, umpires, selectors and Wynberg Families travelling, coordinating, hosting, supporting, maintaining, photographing, filming & marketing … truly a Team Effort!

Wynberg Boys' High School Cricket: Social MediaThe most telling stats for the season are perhaps summed up by our results – across the board – against SACS last week: Played 14. Won 13. Drew 1.

And the 1st XI will – at some stage – get to take its rightful place at Nationals as the Cobras’ representative. It sounds as though we’ll try again in October.

Well done to the 1st XI; 3rd XI and 14As for completing Triple Crown-winning seasons.

In terms of plans for the off-season:

The Jacques Kallis Oval turf nets and structure in general are being redeveloped as of 1 April 2014 and Jaco Stofberg will coordinate the third instalment of his Winter Programme.

Six of our U15s are off to Malaysia next week to represent a composite team, while a Wynberg XI will likely travel to Gauteng in July for a week’s winter tour.

A myriad Wynberg cricketers remain in the hunt for selection to provincial sides too (trials will continue for the remainder of this month).

Special thanks to Feedem Pitseng for taking care of Saturday lunches and Servest for maintaining our grounds and preparing our pitches.

Wynberg Cricket express our appreciation and grateful thanks to Anthony Selley who takes leave – for now at least – of his position as a member of the Wynberg cricket staff. He coached the 17As and 14Bs and managed a 1st XI Cape Schools’ Week tour with wholehearted enthusiasm and total dedication during his tenure.

The season recommences in September with confirmed 1st XI (Cape Schools’ Week at Selborne in East London); 15A (Grey High Festival in Port Elizabeth) and 14A (Hilton College Festival in KZN) pre-season tours as well as a likely 17A festival at Glenwood in Durban.
