During the winter holidays Merensky’s hockey boys were everything but idle. 10 Players were chosen for various provincial teams.
Top of the crop was JJ Davis, who was selected to play at the Bokkieweek. JJ represented the Far North team for the past four years and will be touring with the u.19 SA Bokkie team overseas during November/December.
Novice, Stefan Prinsloo also participated in the Bokkieweek, representing the Far North team. His skill on the field presented him with an opportunity to be included in the u.19 Gazelle team, thus reaping the rewards of five years training whilst playing for Limpopo.
Three players: Samuel Modiba, Jordan Stevens and Donovan van Tonder also qualified for the u.18A Limpopo team. During the tournament this team did the best ever, ending in the 7th position overall.
The u.16B Limpopo team players: Dillon de Lange, Itumeleng Makhubela, Masilo Mabilo, Ryan Jackson and Luann Botha gave their all, with their team ending in the 5th position – also the best performance ever.
