Sports Roundup, Week Ending 19 April 2018

WBHS Sports Support

Friday 19 April 2018, Wynberg Boys' High School: After the euphoria of the Bosch weekend under clear skies, we enter a precarious weekend on wet fields for hockey and rugby against Paarl Boys’ High, and soccer against St Joseph's - all at home.

The 1st XI hockey side will be confident ahead of their fixture at 19h00 on Friday 20 April on the Wynberg Astro. We look forward to seeing as many spectators as possible. Although this is not an all-in weekend, we do expect all hockey players to be out in force to support our teams, and that all rugby players change back into uniform on Saturday 20 April after their matches to cheer on the 1st XV. This is our Wynberg Way for all sports fixtures in the winter months ahead.

A courteous reminder to parents and old boys not to sit in the stands traditionally reserved for our Wynberg boys for home and away matches. A big part of our Wynberg Spirit and the impressive singing and cheering (as displayed last week) is dependent on all Wynberg boys massed together, and not diluted.
