Cricket club is pride of region

Robertson Cricket Club is the Boland and Western Cape T20 champion of last season. It competes in the Premier League of Boland Cricket.

According to Cecil Fielies, chairperson of Robertson Cricket Club, it has three senior men’s teams and one women’s team. The competition in the league comprises Maties, Victorians, Stellenbosch and Districts, Piketberg, Van Der Stel, Paarl Cricket, Worcester United, Wellington and Vredenburg.

“We are actively involved in coaching at Robertson High and in future we will support all other schools in the Langeberg area,” Fielies said. “We are aware many youngsters would like to join our club, but due to the high unemployment rate in our town they are unable to afford even the membership fee of R250.

“The most important factor to consider is that most of our town’s population are seasonal workers and active economically only in summer, when the canning factories are operational. Since sport is the main entertainment here, we believe and know it is our duty to reach out and assist in capacity building in the area. As a club we also believe strongly in giving them the chance to realise and fulfil their dreams.”

He adds that the club is currently fixing its taxi to take care of the many players needing transport to and from the games, including the women’s cricket team that must walk to the practice sessions.

“The cost of transport is very high, and if we can fix the taxi it will assist us a lot,” says Fielies.

If a company can sponsor or wishes to help fix the taxi it is welcome to contact club secretary Dawid Rossouw at 072 876 6248 or the club captain Heinrich du Plessis at 072 883 7900.
