Hockey: PRG Coach Gives Thumbs Up to CT International Festival

The highly regarded Paul Roos Gim boys' first team coach Neville Rothman gave high praise to the Cape Town U18 International Schools/Clubs Hockey Festival in a telephonic interview Tuesday, just a few hours before the annual event's 4pm opening ceremony at Hartleyvale Hockey Stadium.

Neville RothmanRothman is also the head coach of the SA U18 team, who were recently edged 2-1 in a three-Test series against Australia U18 in KZN as well as being integrally involved in the sport at that great hockey institution, the University of Stellenbosch.

"The organisation of this festival is world-class," said Rothman, a man hugely experienced in the game. "It is well-communicated, well-managed and an absolute pleasure to play in."

Rotham added another interesting point or two.

"The international schools festival also offers our boys the opportunity to experience different styles of hockey; the festival is a great refresher after the July holidays and something we always look forward to.

Paul Roos lost an exciting final 2-1 to reigning champs Rondebosch Boys' High in 2013 and there is no doubt that they would like to go one better this time round, come Finals Day on Sunday.
