Derby Day in PMB between Maritzburg College and St Charles College

The two Pietermaritzburg boys’ high schools dating back to 1863 and 1875 respectively meet on the cricket fields and basketball courts plus the water polo pool Saturday, 29 January.

Maritzburg College (1863) and St Charles College (1875) have a longstanding association in the KZN capital and those ties are sure to be strengthened on the playing fields tomorrow.

The first XI cricket match at Maritzburg College’s premier Goldstones ground starts at 9am. The 50-over format is the order of play. Derby matches can throw up the unexpected and it may well be that cometh the hour cometh the cricketer to tilt the odds one way or another.

The longstanding basketball rivalry continues unabated and the 1.30pm first team clash in Maritzburg College’s cavernous Alan Paton Hall will provoke much interest.

The 2021 fourth term “stayers” match at St Charles went College’s way but St Charles will reflect on many a points-scoring basket that went astray.

The first team water polo match is at 10.30 in the Maritzburg College pool.
