I have to remind myself sometimes that these boys are still in primary school,” said Japie “The programme came about after we teamed up with North West Cricket in 2006 and launched The Senwes Spinners, which has become the flagship programme in Farm Schools Cricket Development in the country,” Northwest Cricket and Senwes have hosted the Spinners tournament annually from its inception. Ten schools participate in the programme and the children and coaches receive training. The schools also receive equipment and clothing.
