“It has been 17 months since we dumped our first load of soil on what was then nothing less than an open field. Much progress has been made since then, ”explains cricket chairman Shaun Kruger.

“Three thousand cubic meters of sand and a lot of manual work later, that field starts to look like a cricket field.”

Sheldon Kruger, U-12 Impala League for the United Cricket Club, now known as Old Benonians Cricket Club.

While lockdown was certainly not ideal for the newly established cricket club, it was a bit of a blessing in disguise for their new field.

“There is still a lot of work to be done to get it to the desired standard, but this is a process and we will continue until we reach the end goal.

“The United Cricket Club started out as a junior club 11 years ago and now, under our new name Old Benonians and with our own home-grown field, the first match played on it will be by a junior team. I think this is appropriate and I am very excited for the day, ”he said.

Des Gamble, vice president of Old Bens, said this project is a dream come true for him and an absolute success story.

“If we all work together, with the right attitude to achieve an almost unthinkable goal, we can achieve it. There are so many people who thought we could do this and many more have contributed in many ways to make this possible that no amount of thanks is enough. “

In July, the cricket club committee was elected. They are Shaun Kruger (chairman), Mark Kitching (vice-chairman), Madelyn Kruger (club captain), Jenny Gamble (treasurer), Mariet Combrinck (marketing), Hannelie Riekert (fundraising), Lulu Hand (secretary) and Henk van der Kruit (premier coach).

As we got into lockdown level one and with the restrictions relaxed, the newly elected committee started to work to get the players on the field.

With the planned start of the club season in January next year, registrations took place on October 17 in the Old

Benonians football club from 10am to 12pm. Their annual golf day is October 21.

“The money we raise on golf day will go towards building our new cricket nets in Old Bens,” said Kruger.

Tasting will take place on November 7.

“We aim to play at least three warm-up games per team before the official season starts in January next year,” Kruger concluded.

To celebrate their new field and the official opening, Old Bens invited Laerskool Rynfield’s first XI cricket team to play in an inaugural exhibition game on November 21.
