Paarl Gim and Paarl Boys’ High resume their rivalry this Saturday in a Premier Interschools clash.

The 104th match between the two schools is set to kick off at 4pm and take place at the Faure Street Stadium in Paarl.

The competitive nature of the derby is reflected in the average winning margin between the two schools which is only five points in over 100 games played. There have been 11 draws between them and three of those ended 0-0, the last one coming in 1986. Both teams will have to fight for victory and Paarl bragging rights.

However, the Paarl Interschools is not the only big derby taking place on Saturday, with Grey High set to host Grey College, while DHS take on Northwood, Affies face Waterkloof and KES clash with Jeppe.
