2020 Graeme Day Fixtures

Graeme College of Grahamstown well again host its excellent Graeme Day, this time on 14 March 2020.


There will be a total of 30 matches (60 teams, over a thousand players) on the day, using the three Graeme College fields with overflow at Kingswood and St Andrew’s – a great day for schools rugby in Grahamstown (officially Makhanda).

The cream of Eastern Cape’s rugby schools will be taking part – from East London, King William’s Town and Queenstown, from Cradock, Humansdorp and Uitenhage.

Most focus will be on the Somerset A Field at Graeme College where the first teams will be in action. There will be eight matches – 16 top Eastern Cape schools in action in full rugby matches, starting a eight in the morning when Cambridge High School of East London play Mary Waters High School of Grahamstown whose most famous rugby Old Boy is Allister Coetzee.

The three big Grahamstown schools have tough opposition. Kingswood meet Selborne, St Andrew’s Framesby and hosts Graeme Marlow of Cradock. When Graeme and Marlow meet, matches on the other fields will be over and interest should be high.

The day is sure to draw great crowds yet again.
