WELCOME CLAREMONT CRICKET CLUB
We would like to welcome Claremont Cricket Club to Pirates this weekend for the inaugural Pirates vs Claremont pre season tour.
This weekend promises to produce some great inter-provincial club cricket, with 50 overs being played on Saturday and the 20/20 matches being contested on Sunday!
The Claremont cricket boys are really keen for this tour so it should be a phenomenal weekend.
We encourage you to pop in this weekend and enjoy good cricket, banter, food and beverages!
THE 2016/2017 LEAGUE IS UPON US
All the best to the SUNDAY PRESIDENTS XI, who will be taking on UJ this weekend. They will be playing away at the Orban oval. #weplaycricketanywhereinafrica

CONGRATULATIONS KEATON JENNINGS 
Well done to our very own Keaton Jenning, who has scored his 7th century of the Specsavers County Championship. Keaton is top of the list with over 1500 runs for the season.
