WITH our ever worsening water crisis and electricity problems local business’s are under a lot of pressure. This however, has not stopped businesses from taking the initiative and giving back to the community. A number of businesses got together and sponsored Greytown Junior School’s first cricket side with a new kit. The side has been preparing for their upcoming cricket tour and this generous sponsorship will ensure that the players are well equipped and look smart. Greytown Junior School and parents would like to thank the following sponsors, BSB Enterprises, Greytown Auto Paints, ET Security Systems, Supa Quick Greytown, Forsdickworks Wear and RTS. A special thank you must be made to Mr and Mrs Beckett and Mr Stanczyk for their efforts. The continued support of the community is what drives sports development and aids pupils in discipline and encourages hard work.On Friday 16 October the U13 A side travelled to Dundee accompanied by Mr Stanczyk, Mr Nel and Mr Goosen. This tournament is an well established event in northern KwaZulu-Natal and is reputed as being a well organised weekend of action-packed cricket. All teams play an eight over game which ensures it is fast paced and exciting. Greytown Junior School played two games on Friday. the first against Glencoe. Greytown lost the toss and batted first making a total of 65 runs for the loss of one wicket. Glencoe made a total of 32 for the loss of five wickets. The second game was much more intense Greytown played against Reits Primary. Greytown made a total of 62 runs, but were unable to catch up to the 75 runs. Reits won by four wickets. On Saturday Greytown played against NRS and, although appling early pressure, NRS made a total of 48 runs. Greytown struggled with the batting and made 39 for the loss of three wickets. The last game was against a very determined Hutten Park side. Greytown fielded first with Faizaan Hoosen taking two wickets early in the game. Hutten Park made a total of 64 runs for the loss of four wickets. Greytown batted and made a total of 64 runs for the loss of four wickets. The nerve-racking last ball saw Greytown and Hutten Park draw. Well done to all the players who, throughout the weekend, played exceptional cricket. - Mrs Boshoff.
