Young Warriors CC acquire Lawn Tractor
In an effort to maintain and further improve the outfield of the Young
Warriors Cricket Ground, Cumberland Village, East Canje, Berbice, the Club recently acquired a Craftsman Lawn Tractor from Sears Miami at a cost $340,000.
The Club is the first in Berbice and one of the few in Guyana to own such equipment. However, funds have to be raised to pay for the Lawn Tractor which was bought by a friend of the Club who has to be refunded.
The Club is calling on their corporate friends and supporters to assist in acquiring the necessary funds to repay the loan. Over the years, despite the many challenges, the Club has persevered to ensure a top class ground is provided for their players.
The Club Management is once again calling on members of the community to care the facility since it is the only ground in the New Amsterdam/Canje area that can host cricket finals and Inter County and Under-21 matches etc.
Young Warriors CC has over the years produced many national players at all levels including the likes of Damodar Daesrath, Gajanand Singh, Richard Ramdeen, Paul Wintz, Balram Samaroo, Quesi Maltay, Seon Hetmyer, Kevin Ramdeen, Linden Austin and Shimron Hetmyer among many others.
They continue to fulfill their mandate of helping to keep young people positively occupied and to stay away from drugs and alcohol abuse. Gratitude is being extended to Mr. Buddy Seunarine of Caribbean Dry Cleaners of Miami, Mr. Avinash Bhagwandin Managing Director of Laparkan, Mr. Sarabdial and Mr. Dharmendra also of Laparkan and Guyana Revenue Authority.
Presently, YWCC is in the process of building another pavilion whilst among some of their future plans they will develop a parking lot as well as purchase floodlights for the venue so that night activities can be held.
