Cape Town - The Wanderers Stadium is proud to announce the appointment of Bethuel Buthelezi as the Head Grounds Curator.

Buthelezi, who has been acting in this role for the past month, has been working at the Bullring alongside his predecessor, Chris Scott, for more than 20 years. During this time, Buthelezi played an integral role in producing quality playing surfaces that has produced numerous world records including the 438-game and the Pink Day Massacre of the West Indies at the Wanderers in February of 2015.

Chris Scott will continue in a consultative role for the 2015/16 season to support Buthelezi in his new role.

Chief Executive, Greg Fredericks, is proud of the fact that the stadium has been able to retain and will continue to benefit from this level of experience and knowledge of the playing facilities at the Wanderers Stadium.

“We are extremely excited by the fact that we have been able to appoint an individual with extensive knowledge and experience specific to the Wanderers Stadium,”

“Bethuel has proven his worth time and time again and his work has been a clear indication of his ability in this area of expertise. I am confident that under his leadership, this stadium will remain the world-class cricket facility that it is. I wish him and his team the best of luck for the task at hand,” Fredericks said.

Buthelezi is relishing this new opportunity.

“I have enjoyed working with Chris and have learnt a lot from the experience at the Bidvest Wanderers. I am also happy that there is so many experience amongst the staff that will be working with me and I think this is going to be a big benefit. My appreciation goes to the Gauteng Cricket Board for the confidence in me,” Buthelezi commented.

Fredericks also sees this as part of the strategic focus of the Gauteng Cricket Board.

“We remain committed to empowering and developing our own staff so that we become an organisation that is increasingly maximising the value of its own human capital.”
