By Dries Badenhorst – Vaughan Visagie, a learner at Curro Durbanville Independent School, scored his maiden 50 this past Monday.  He achieved this feat in a u/10 cricket match between Curro and Fanie Theron.  Curro won the game with more than 90 runs.

When Vaughan was 8 he was discovered by the late Cliffie Adams.

Cliffie gave him an opportunity of a lifetime when he made sure that Vaughan played cricket matches every Saturday.  The little 8 year old boy had to play for the u/11’s.  These games gave Vaughan invaluable experience and gave his cricket a boost from a young age.

Henco Bornmann, Head of Cricket at Curro Durbanville, took Vaughan under his wing 4 years ago.  Under his mentorship “Vaughannie”, as he is passionately referred to by his peers, is continually improving as a player – both in batting and bowling.

Vaughan was a member of the Curro u/13B touring squad to Mossel Bay, this past holiday.

This young man is a talented prospect to keep an eye on in the future.
