Walvis Bay Salt Refiners u/11 & u/13 Festival
The Annual junior cricket festival caters for the U11 and U13 age groups, the tournament has been hosted every year in August for past 20 years, this year will be no different. This tournament was previously also known as the Spur Week and the sponsorship was taken over by the Salt Refiners to be renamed to what we know now as the Salt Refiners Tournament.
U13 Tour to Port Elizabeth 2017
The U13 team also toured with the U11 team to Port Elizabeth, where they took part in the Cricket South Africa U13 B week.
This squad is the group that came through the rankings from the initial U11 tour last year, and one could see that the experience was showing dividends.
Under the experienced coach, Dickson Vambe, and the leadership of the outstanding captain, Divan la Cock, the team had had a steady tour and might not have won all their matches, but the matches that they did lose all went down to the wire, and if one or two balls had gone differently could have changed the result.
After the match against Eastern Province rained out, the team managed to beat both Boland and Western Province 2, before succumbing to Western Province 1, Western Province 3 and Free State.
