Joburg Cricket club harnessing talent in the inner city

Chairman of the Joburg Cricket Club (JCC), Indran Govender, says the aim of the club based in the inner city is to introduce lay a foundation for children to play.

The club in Bertrams attracts over 130 children every Saturday through their feeding scheme.

Speaking to John Robbie at the club, Govender said the JCC is inspired by the Barcelona Football Club.

The theory behind this is that 80 percent that go through the programme don't actually become football players but when they get older they sit in the stands and become staunch supporters.

After 24 years we are now a premier league club and it's been a bit of a journey... we are one of the clubs doing well.
