It is an announcement tinged with sadness that 1st XI coach and OD, Eric Lefson, will be leaving his role, next month, to take up a full-time teaching and coaching opportunity at Hamilton Boys' High School in New Zealand. Eric, having also coached the Wynberg Boys' High School 1st XI for a record 828 games, is an unequivocal legend of Cape Town and South African schoolboy cricket and Bishops has been the (fortunate) beneficiary of his wisdom, dedication and sheer passion for the game as, first, 14A coach (2018-2021) and, as of the start of the year, 1st XI mentor. Bishops is sorry to see Eric go but also excited for him as he begins a new (ad)venture on the other side of the world.
