Gen­er­ous donation of cricket kits by su­per sup­porter

Talk of the Town - - Sport - ROB KNOWLES

THE smiles on the faces of the Pineap­ple Crick­eters as they re­ceived a donation of cricket kit would have warmed the heart of Ad­vo­cate Ndlovu Ngum­bela who, once again, showed his gen­eros­ity and com­mit­ment to the game he has en­joyed for many years.

Ngum­bela is the founder of the ru­ral cricket tour­na­ment in Heald­town which is named af­ter him, and is played at the im­pres­sive Ngum­bela Sta­dium. He is a lover of the sport and gen­er­ously do­nated six cricket kits to coastal area teams through the pres­i­dent of the Pineap­ple Cricket Tour­na­ment, Wal­ter Biggs.

Biggs handed out five kits to teams at the Port Al­fred Coun­try Club last Thurs­day, namely Rain­bows, Early Birds, Tiger Ti­tans, Ken­ton and Sta­tion Hill. Biggs said the sixth kit would be used for cricket de­vel­op­ment at the Port Al­fred Coun­try Club.

“He’s a true al­tru­ist and we are grate­ful for his gen­eros­ity,” said Biggs as he handed the kit over to the re­spec­tive teams who, in turn, thanked Biggs and Ngum­bela.
