Bongile Mfunelwa has been called up to the Western Province under-13 A team.
The youngster who hails from Khayelitsha and attends Impendulo Primary School is mentored by his uncle and GKF coach, Sivuyile Mfunelwa.
The CSA Level One accredited coach is incredibly proud of his nephew’s achievements.
“Bongile comes from humble beginnings,” Mfunelwa said.
“He grew up watching me playing cricket. That is when his passion and love for the game started to grow in his head” he added.
Mfunelwa says Bongile’s call up to the provincial team will inspire many around him.
“We are so happy to have a boy like him, he is the first one to make a provincial team in our family. His progress will motivate his teammates, family and the Khayelitsha Township as whole,” Mfunelwa said.
