Over 950 budding cricketers had their talent sharpened during the Free State leg of the KFC Festival held at the Martie du Plessis LSEN in Bloemfontein on 26 October.

The one-day event afforded teams of youngsters in the province the chance to showcase their talent competing and getting training.

It not only introduces them to cricket, but also allow them to play and have fun. Most of the participants are still in primary school.

Jonathan Draai, who represented Free State and the Free State Academy, said the festival was important to get children active to gradually have their talent nurtured.

The youngsters participate in mini-cricket programmes as part of their development programme aimed at producing future star players capable to represent South Africa.

This year the programme celebrates ten years in partnership with Cricket South Africa.
