Johann Myburgh, Head Coach of South East Stars CC remarked;

“It’s been really good, the girls have found the time very valuable to prepare for the season, it’s a great place to come out and work hard and train.

To end up playing games on a pitch like this is really good with fantastic facilities in terms of the outfield and surface we played on made for really good cricket.”
