Promising St Francis College cricketer, James Beckley scored the top score of 60 not out in the first of two under 13 matches but it was not enough to clinch the match. The Allrounder Cricket Academy scored 208 in 30 overs and KPCC scored 199 to lose by only 9 runs. Fellow College cricketer, Brennan Landman contributed competently in the under 13 matches with his bowling and fielding.
KCPC also played a warm up match against Nico Malan’s U14 team where James top scored again with 40 runs not out. Although KCPC lost both Under 13 matches, coach Ralton Fortuin regards these as important season warm up matches for the College cricketers.
