WBHS 175th anniversary 6-a-side festival

Posted on by Willem Steyn

In a memorable day for all who were lucky enough to be at PPC Newlands Stadium on Sunday January 31st, Bishops won the WBHS 175th anniversary six-a-side cricket festival.  Having won their two preliminary matches against RBHS and then Paul Roos earlier in the day the Bishops team played in the final against hosts WBHS.  After a thrilling match Bishops triumphed by 23 runs to win the gold medals. There were some exceptional performances from our boys as well as from the two ODs who made up the squad of eight players. It was a real privilege for the boys to run out at Newlands and they performed exceptionally well. We are also grateful to the two ODs for playing.Wynberg 6-a-side winners
