Four Jeppe cricketers get CGL contracts

Levert Manje

Jeppe is well represented in the list of Central Gauteng Lions cricketers who have been contracted for the 2020/21 season.

Levert Manje, who played for the South African Schools and SA under-19 teams at the end of the last season, has been included in the CGL Senior Provincial Men’s Contracted Squad – the Strikers team that plays one level below the Franchise competition.

Three Jeppe boys – Zach Sibanda, Cian Robertson and Shaveer Kahn – are in the new intake of players into the CGL Academy, the union’s elite player development programme. Eight new players were chosen and Jeppe’s three is the most from any one school.

Congratulations to all four. You have done Jeppe proud, we will be watching your progress eagerly.

In the mean time, we have learned that Kgaudise Molefe will be playing at Easterns next season and that Linda Ndlovu is on a full bursary, studying and playing cricket at the University of Fort Hare.
