One World of Sport is proud to announce the signing of three young players, Heath Richards, Nicholas Keevy and Gerhardus Fourie.
Richards is an 18-year old allrounder from South Western Districts (SWD). He is a right0handed middle order batsman and right-arm fast bowler. He made his debut for SWD earlier this season while still at school and has since played five first-class, four List A and five T20 games. He already has a first-class fifty behind his name. His all-round abilities came to the fore at the Khaya Majola Coke Week in December when he won the award for Bowler of the Week.
17-year old Keevy is in matric at Grey High in Port Elizabeth. He scored the second most runs at the Khaya Majola Coke Week in December and on the back of this impressive performance was selected for the SA Schools team. Keevy is a right-hand opening batsman and off-spin bowler. He captained the Warriors team at the annual Cubs Week in Stellenbosch in January (an impressive achievement at his age) and is also the captain of his school’s first team.
Like Keevy, Fourie too is still in matric at Merensky High School in Tzaneen, Limpopo. He made his debut for Limpopo in September in the CSA Provincial T20 Cup. He has since represented his province at the annual Khaya Majola Coke Week in December in Pietermaritzburg and was also recently selected to represent Limpopo at CSA’s annual Rural Week. Fourie is a right-arm fast bowler.
We wish all of them well for the rest of the season and look forward to walking the road with them as professional cricketers.
