During the past season, the Kovsie teams performed well in the competitions and leagues that they participated in.

Early in the season, we had the T20 competition. Both the first cricket team and the Peshawars performed well in this, and played against each other in the final of the competition – truly a great achievement, considering that strong teams such as CUT and Bobbies also took part in the competition.

During the MCA Premier League (the first team as well as the Peshawars compete in the league) both Kovsie teams performed very well.

The Kovsie first team won this league, while the Peshawars ended third. With this win, the first team is going through to the play-offs in order to qualify for the National Club Championships. This match was against the Yorkshire Cricket Club in Kimberley (the Northern Cape league champions).

Raynhardt van Tonder: He represented the South African Under-19 team at the World Cup. During the tournament, he scored two centuries and was named captain of the Tournament team.

After the USSA tournament, Raynhardt was selected for the National Student Team. He also received a contract from the Knights.

Shaun Whitehead: After the USSA tournament, Shaun was selected for the National Student Team. He was also offered a semi-pro contract from the Free State.

Beyers Swanepoel: After the Academy week, he was selected for the South African Colts team and also received a semi-pro contract from the Free State.
