ON Wednesday 8 March a combined cricket side travelled to Hermannsburg accompanied by Mr Stanzcyk. 
Greytown won the toss and selected to bat. Although losing three early wickets, a tremendous partnership from Christopher Nunan (U13) and Ameer Nabee (U11) of 84 runs raised Greytown’s score. 
Christopher made 54 runs from 29 balls and Ameer 35 runs from 19 balls, bringing Greytown’s total to 115 runs for the loss of 6 wickets by the end of the 20th over.  Greytown then fielded and applied early pressure taking early wickets. Yaseen Nabee took 6 wickets.  Hermannsburg made 65 runs for the loss of 10 wickets. Well done to all our cricket players.

On Friday 10 March Greytown Junior’s U13 side travelled to Pietermaritzburg for the final round of the Ralph Caewood Day/Night series. Greytown played two games.  In the first against Midlands Development, which proved to be tough competition, Development scored 3 tries.  Greytown came back scoring twice, but was unable to catch up leaving the end score at 27-12 in Development’s favour. 
Our second game was against Clarendon. Greytown took control early in the game and scored 5 tries leaving the end score 31-0 in our favour.

Greytown Junior’s U11 cricket side travelled to New Hanover on Thursday 16 March accompanied by Mr Goosen. The boys played a well structured game, but the batting side lacked some depth and the boys stumbled for 38 runs for the loss of 9 wickets. The boys enjoyed them thoroughly and a good lesson was learnt not to underestimate your opponents. New Hanover won the game with 120 runs for the loss of 7 wickets.
