St Kitts - The Proteas' Test squad celebrated South Africa's national youth day by holding a coaching clinic for local youngsters at Warner Park, St. Kitts, on Wednesday.

The clinic was led by fielding coach Rob Walter with assistance from Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Ashwell Prince and Morne Morkel.

"The youth are the future of our country," commented Proteas' captain Graeme Smith. "And, from a cricketing perspective, they look like providing a very bright future.

"It was only a couple of years ago that Wayne Parnell and David Miller were in our under-19 ranks and now they are playing for the Proteas.

"There are so many opportunities available these days for our youngsters to live their dreams."

After a morning practice the Proteas donned their Bafana Bafana soccer shirts to support the national soccer team and watch the Soccer World Cup match against Uruguay on television.
