Fixtures versus Paarl Boys Sat. 14th AprilApril 13, 2016
We have a full load of fixtures this weekend. Please note that it takes about 45-50 mins to get to Paarl.
You may be wondering why our teams other than As and U16s and above are playing a team down. Paarl have 7 sides in most age groups suggesting their depth of players is a tad stronger than ours. Their B teams are loaded with ex U13 provincial players where only our As may include one or two. Pride and Premier League dictates our As play their As. Interestingly we become more and more competitive, and bigger, and faster and more skilled as we move up the ranks so our seniors do battle team on team. Mostly losing but battle they do. And that’s all we want – through life our boys are unlikely to have to fight it out with the heavies where odds are severly stacked against them. These are essential lessons requiring dollops of grit and resilience. That’s all we want- True Grit.
