The parents cooked boere rolls and all the boys had lunch together. he players in the Alex team all received new cricket equipment sponsored by one of the Dads. Niels Momberg from CSA organized shirts and caps for the boys and DJ Coaching gave away 5 vouchers to 5 boys from Alex to receive 2 terms of free small group private coaching which is to the value of just over R14000. The other players that came to watch all got a new shirt and sweet packs. A special thanks must go to one of the DJ Coaching coaches Francis Nkuna for putting the whole day together with the help of the Alex coaches and Jason.
