KES Old Boy elected CSA Vice-President!

Congratulations to King Edward VII School Old Boy, Thabang Moroe, Class of 2001, on his new appointment as CSA Vice-President.

THE Gauteng Cricket Board (GCB) has commended the contribution that President of the GCB and Chairman of the bizhub Highveld Lions, Thabang Moroe, has made for cricket in Gauteng and the bizhub Highveld Lions franchise after his election as Vice-President of Cricket South Africa (CSA) during the CSA AGM over the past weekend.

Moroe’s deep love for cricket that started at KFC Mini-Cricket level and progressed through his high school cricket career at King Edward VII School (KES) as well as his involvement at Dobsonville Cricket Club, saw him pursue the best interests of cricket as Sport Administrator when the opportunity came.

After being elected to the Board in 2012, Moroe was elected as the GCB representative on the CSA Board after the CSA appointed Administrator, Ray Mali, had stepped down. In August of 2013, Moroe was elected to head up both the organisations at the young age of 31.

During his time as the Non-Executive Head of the two cricket bodies, Moroe’s leadership has been characterised as being fair and keeping the best interests of cricket, as a whole, at heart at all times. He took over the leadership of the Company after a turbulent time and together with Chief Executive Officer, Greg Fredericks, they led the GCB to stability and renewed confidence in the organisation.
