When Andrew told us that James had been selected for his district team to take part in the first round of the Under 11 Western Province trials we were delighted, as any grandparents would be. Saturday saw us on the way to Cape Town, via the Getaway Show at Lourensford and on Sunday morning we were ready and waiting for the game to start at 09h00. Unfortunately the match officials were a bit late, but things got underway at 10h00. Jamie was asked to open the batting for his side. After surviving an early dropped catch, he went on to make 19 not out before being retired so that his teammates could also show their skills. We will only find out later whether he has been included in the next round or not, but are happy to have seen him perform and wish him every success. Lets hope that next time he also gets a chance to bowl, as that is his favourite discipline.
