The President of Limpopo Impala Cricket, John Mogodi gave thanks to all the people who played a vital role in making sure that LIC is where it is.

“A lot of achievements have been acquired. Congratulations, you have worked hard. Cricket is a very expensive sport and for the winners to have achieved what they achieved means that somebody had to sacrifice, be it the school, the parents or the vision of LIC, so I would like to thank every single person for their contribution to cricket. We have seen lots of sporting codes suffer and decline, but we have seen cricket going from strength to strength.” he said.
