Dejonge said, “The Screw Richmond organisation has decided to honour those three children, who were successful at the National Grade Six Assessment examinations or Common Entrance Examinations, and we are hoping what we are doing, would inspire them to grab these opportunities with both hands.”Every year the Edward ‘Screw’ Richmond Foundation organises a Linden Under-18 Schools football championship in memory of the former top national footballer.last_img
