On Friday afternoon we welcome eleven teams from around the country for our 3rd annual Shaun Pollock Cricket Festival. With a number of matches and different formats of the game to be played over the festival, it definitely means that some exciting cricket awaits us. A warm and early welcome to our invitational side, consisting of boys from around the province that will be joining us in Grade 8 in 2016. This festival, has been for many, a great introduction to the Northwood schooling experience, so enjoy it. To our sponsors, PhotoNote, Flya, Barcelos, Kookaburra, Growthpoint and Ola, thank you for your contribution to this festival and to Northwood cricket as a whole. Our appreciation for your involvement in the sport at Northwood is difficult to do justice in a few short words, but THANK YOU. I wish safe travels to all the teams coming from afar. To all boys representing their school at this festival, enjoy it, play hard but in good spirit, make friends and create great memories.
