The inaugural Acres Spar-JCB u9 Youth Day Festival, held on 16 June, was immensely successful. The schools who participated were Bethelsdorp Road, Charlo, Bonzai, Clarendon Park, Summerwood, West End and Westering. The players thoroughly appreciated the “goodie-bags” they received and enjoyed the festival matches.
We would like to thank our generous sponsors, Mr Chris Heyns of The Acres Spar and Mr Marinus Rautenbach of Kemach JCB. The “Herbie Carnival and Fun Run” which took place on the hockey had a number of food trucks selling various items. This, in conjunction with the live bands, created an awesome atmosphere, which set the tone for the whole day. The spectators were treated to awesome tries and great entertaining rugby.
