THE oldest New Brighton-based club, Jendamark United Cricket Club, proved beyond any doubt that they are a major force to be reckoned with when they became the first township club to win the Premier League title.According to Jendamark United Cricket Club administrator Stan Mosia, their players worked their socks off during the previous season. The club’s senior and reserve teams are currently the league winners. Mosia added that Jendamark, their major sponsor and effective and strong united management, had motivated and encouraged the players and lifted the spirit of the entire club. “The injection of the major sponsorship to the tune of R500 000 has contributed towards our club’s success. “The sponsorship is used for transport, kit for playing, as well as for warming up, tracksuits, meals and general administration. “The sponsorship has been renewed this season and it is now R560 000. All these things have boosted the players’ confidence, team spirit and unity. I think our capable, qualified and experienced head coach, Riaan Jeggels, has also added value to the entire club.“His expertise has indeed been phenomenal to the club. Our team manager, Monde Nogaga, has also worked very hard.”Mosia stated that some of the players with Level 1 coaching qualifications did sterling grassroots’ cricket development work in New Brighton primary schools. He said that Monde Qumana was the head of the hub and highlighted that their chairman, Mongezi Majola, was also instrumental in the success of the club. “This season we will incentivise the best players after the game.”Jendamark Cricket Club won their game against SA Home Loans Union Cricket Club by seven wickets and got a bonus point. Jendamark’s next match will be against NMU Madibaz Cricket Club 1 at Dan Qeqe Stadium on Sunday at 10am.
