Secretary of the Guyana Cricket Board, Anand Sanasie, visited Berbice last Sunday and donated cricket gear kits to Rosehall/Canje Cricket Club and “B” Division Police Cricket Club.
Sanasie charged the young cricketers and representatives of Rosehall and Police Clubs to make good use of the gears. He promised the clubs to help them with red cricket balls as well. The GCB Secretary said that these two clubs have shown an interest in the development of young cricketers and the Guyana Cricket Board will continue to pay keen attention to those administrators and clubs that can produce young talent.
Safraz Ali, Industrial Welfare Officer and Committee Development Officer of Rosehall Estate, thanked the GCB for remembering their club in this venture. He added that they are in the process of rebuilding the stands through the Government of Guyana, and re-establishing the cricket club back to its glory days. He said the gears would assist them in getting back on the map. Ali assured Sanasie that they would care and cherish the donated equipment.
Michael Newland, Station Sergeant, First Division,Central Berbice, thanked the GCB for seeing it fit to assist Police Cricket Club. He said the cricketers would use them fully. Newland stated that the kit would help a great deal as the Police Club continues to grow, with over 50 young cricketers at the moments. Recently the Police First Division Club has been performing creditably in all the BCB Competitions.
This contribution is the continuation of the GCB country wide cricket development outreach programme which the Board started this year. Other cricket clubs in Berbice will receive gears and funding for facilities development soon.
