Paarl Boys’ High Cricket Festival set to launch 2024 season with a bang

By Willem Louw , in Cricket | News , at 2023-11-21

The 2024 cricket season will roar into action on the 11th of January next year at the annual Paarl Boys’ High Cricket Festival. With 28 first teams and 24 u15 teams competing over the four days, it is one of the largest festivals of its kind in South Africa.

With strong competition travelling from all over the country to face some of the Boland’s best over the course of four days, it promises to be an action-packed introduction to the new season.

The hosts begin the proceedings with a timed cricket match against Hoërskool Outeniqua, from George, on the first day.

On the second day, Boishaai face Garsfontein in a 50-overs showdown before taking on Noordheuwel on the Saturday.

They end their campaign with an exciting fixture against St John’s College, from Johannesburg.

With a selection of 26 games available each day, there will undoubtedly be an abundance of high-quality cricket to enjoy, and after the 2023 festival, expectations are high.

After Boishaai’s first match against Garsfontein ended undecided at this year’s event, despite a massive innings of 182 by Johan Wege, they went on to beat Noordheuwel and Westville Boys’ High before coming up tantalisingly short against St John’s College on the final day, losing by just 14 runs.

The locals will have a shot at redemption when they again face St John’s on the final day of the 2024 event.
