The members, executive and staff of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) is deeply saddened by the passing of senior sports journalist, Calvin Roberts. Calvin played an important role in highlighting the works of the GCB over the years. His love for cricket cannot be debated; he was willing to partake in any event to promote the development of the game.
We could have called on Calvin at any time; he never hesitated to get words of our undertakings, issues and other news out to the public. He was also a qualified electronic scorer whom the Board relied on for Regional and International Tournaments.
We admired his deep passion, dedication and positive personality. We considered it a privilege to have known him and worked with him. He was our ‘Sports Journalist of the Year’ in 2013, an award he earned through his excellent work. He has surely left a high standard for his peers to follow.
We knew that Calvin was sick but was hoping that he would recover; the news of his death floored us all, we can only imagine the depth of grief his family members are in at the moment. The GCB would like to express our deepest sympathy to his family, friends and colleagues; they are in our thoughts and prayers.
