BUCO Uitenhage has announced its sponsorship in one of the oldest rugby rivalries between high schools in Uitenhage namely John Walton vs Uitenhage High.

Buco branch manager, Joel Katz, is extremely excited to be involved in this occasion.

“We are really pleased to be able to invest in the future leaders of our country, be it in business or on the sporting front,” said Katz.

Earlier, over the Freedom Day long weekend, classic match host John Walton High School celebrated its 45th anniversary.

Unfortunately, during these celebrations, they had to bow their heads losing in the dying moments through a converted try by their old rivals Uitenhage High.

The “Buco Classic Match - Lets Build Together” will be held on Saturday, 28th July and will grant John Walton an ideal opportunity to gain revenge on Uitenhage High.

The game will be played at the Derrick Ferreira Stadium in Rosedale and the 1st team kick-off is scheduled for 11:00.

Both schools’ leaderships expressed their happiness that a local and national business like Buco saw the opportunity to invest in school sport.

They also expressed that Buco’s motto, “Let’s Build Together” will go a long way in building relationships between communities, schools and children themselves and are also very thankful Buco have identified the need to invest in their youth.

A carnival atmosphere is expected and learners, parents and the Uitenhage public are all invited to come and support this inaugural event. – HEILIE COMBRINCK
