JULY 29, 2016

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, together with the rugby fraternity in Uitenhage, will be hosting a combined programme ton Saturday to honour one of the founding members of the Gardens Rugby Club and a former Ward Councillor for the area, Derrick Ferreira.

The Rosedale Sportsfield will now be known as the Derrick Ferreira Sportsfield. Gates open at 10am and the first match between Eagle Stars and Khayelitsha Rugby Club starts at 11:30 followed by a clash of the reserve sides of Gardens and Spring Rose.

The official programme, led by Executive Mayor Dr Danny Jordaan, takes place before the much anticipated EP Rugby sanctioned Grand Challenge match between Gardens and Spring Rose.

Please note that no glass bottles will be allowed at the stadium.
