Members of the Bishops 1st XI cricket squad and Coach Neil Carter visited Ukhyano primary school in Masiphumelele. Vince van der Bijl has done some amazing work in developing cricket at the school. So it was wonderful to have the Bishops boys visit and help out for the morning's cricket program. These boys, and girls, have only been playing cricket for a few months, mostly only in the nets. Time was spent working on their skills as well as taking them out onto the field to show them how a match scenario would work. It was great to see how much fun they had, as well as the competitiveness in the little games they played. The Bishops boys noticed, that due to the language barrier, the way they learnt and understood the best, was by demonstrating everything to them. A big thank you to Vince for arranging the visit and Bishops looks forward to continued support of Ukhyano primary school.
