The VCC v Hong Kong Taveners / Hong Kong CC 40 over match 4th March 2008

At the end of the final match of The VCC’s Far East Cricket tour in 2008, having beaten Hong Kong Taveners at the famous Hong Kong Cricket Club, the losing side made a generous donation to The Liwa Primary School project by fining their players for poor performance on the field and for just about anything else off it !!

We would like to thank George Lamplough, Captain of the Hong Kong Taveners, for his teams generous efforts in supporting our project by the fines imposed on his players. It was a most sincere gesture of goodwill and one that will be much appreciated by all those at Liwa Primary School in Gugulethu township, South Africa.

For those remotely interested in cricket - below are the details of The VCC’s historic first overseas 40 over match win after 22 years by 65 runs !!!
