Meanwhile, Andrew Galloway, a former player and provincial captain who has been playing cricket in the province for 23 years, was honoured for his commitment and service to the game with the Long Service Award as he bid the gentlemanâ€™s game farewell.
Guest speaker and Titans Cricket Team player, Ethy Mbhalati congratulated the winners and urged them to work hard in order to realise their full potential as cricketers.
Congratulating the winners, the President of Limpopo Impala Cricket, John Mogodi said they are proud of all the recipients and thanked them for their contribution to the sport.â€œIt was yet another successful season and the introduction of timed cricket meant that our cricketers had a lot more cricket this season. More than ten centuries were scored with standout performances by Isaac Senetla, Bradley Pieterse, Pieter Haasbroek and Acasio de Sousa who each had a splendid season scoring several hundreds between them.
â€œIt is because of you and stakeholders that cricket in Limpopo keeps going from strength
