Cricket

When you walk across the fields of Glenwood on a summer’s afternoon it’s easy to see why cricket is the main summer sport at the School. With over thirty cricket teams, cricket at Glenwood keeps going from strength to strength.

Glenwood has produced a number of International and provincial representatives:

  • David Thomas Drew-Test Umpire
  • Robert James ‘Bob’ Williams- 1935
  • Lawrence Anderson ‘Fish’ Markham-SA Schools 1941
  • John Cecil Watkins 1949-1957
  • Kenneth Neil Hoskin SA Universities 1971-1977
  • Keith Mervyn Hosken- SA Universities 1972-1973
  • Trevor Madsen 1989/90, Steven Jack 1994-1995
  • Jade Winston Dernbach- England (current)
  • Colin Munro – NZ (current)
  • Mthokozisi Shezi – SA ODI Team
  • Andile Phehlukwayo – SA A

Cricket is played during the first and fourth term. The boys play at least seven fixtures against all the top schools KZN can offer per term. Every team is coached by an individual coach and practices take place during the week. Emphasis during practices is not just focussed on the experienced players but also on the beginners to develop them to their full potential.

At Glenwood we pride ourselves on playing cricket in the right manner by playing hard but also respecting the game, umpires and opponents.
