They say that teams which look like a team, often play like one. In these times of difficulty, every little bit of help that vulnerable clubs can get is appreciated.
Recently, four clubs in the Northerns Cricket Union region were handed a generous gift of playing shirts across the board.
“The aim was to ensure that teams from previously disadvantaged clubs looked presentable and looked like a team,” Northerns Cricket Union (NCU) Services Manager Charlotte Serwadi explained.
Enter Mr Trevor Bhebhe, the CEO of Kamoso. Having had a conversation with NCU President Mr Tebogo Siko, Mr Bhebhe and the Kamoso group stepped up and said they would ensure that clubs in communities with challenges would receive some assistance.
“Mr Trevor Bhebhe is passionate about uplifting sports in black communities,” Serwadi added.
“He offered to assist after Mr Siko indicated challenges we face in our hubs.”
Mr Siko also expressed his gratitude at the gesture.
“There is a wonderful saying in our culture that one hand washes the other. To these clubs, that sense of unity and pride provided by this generosity means a whole lot. It also reiterates the fact that their efforts are watched and appreciated. I thank Mr Bhebhe, on behalf of the clubs. And on behalf of those communities, ” the NCU President said.
Playing shirts with their respective club logos were sponsored to the following clubs:
Mamelodi Cricket Club
Soshanguve Cricket Club
Atteridgeville Cricket Club
Hammanskraal Cricket Club.
