St David’s has evolved into one of South Africa’s leading cricket schools, under the watchful eye of Mr Dave Nosworthy, an internationally acclaimed coach who serves as Director of Cricket at St David’s Marist Inanda.
Mr Nosworthy is the former head coach of Somerset County Cricket Club, Lions Cricket, Titans Cricket and SA U19s. During his own school years at Grey High School in the 1980s, Mr Nosworthy broke Graeme Pollock’s record for most runs in a season.
The College cricketers also work with our two cricket professionals, Mr Jeff Levin and Mr Jethro Mawudzi, in addition to their regular age group coaches.
Among the St David’s cricketing alumni is Temba Bavuma, who became the first black African to score a century for the Proteas, against England in 2015. Bavuma has scored more than 2 000 international runs and captained the Lions at first-class level. In March 2021, he was appointed as the new captain for the One-Day and T20 Protea teams, becoming the first black African to hold this position.
In 2019, Jacob Miltz and Jarred Jardine represented South Africa at U19 level, while Westley van der Spuy played alongside these two for the Lions U19 team.
