Glasgow / Jairam win Silvina’s Variety Store Beach Volleyball Classic
Former national Captain Seon Glasgow teamed up with former national Under-19 player Naresh Jairam to win the Silvina’s Variety Beach Volleyball Classic Trophy when the Berbice Volleyball Association (BVA) held its pair’s competition, at the Eglets Sandcourt in Reliance, East Canje.
The pair of Adriel Moore and Creston Rodney (current national U-19 players) and female players Cynthia Harris and Yogeta Ramkissoon, also performed creditably to win their respective categories.
The competition which was played in blistering sunshine attracted 19 pairs (16 male and 3 females) and was played in different categories due to the late arrival of most of the male players from the Corentyne and the standard of play under the new Beach Volleyball rules was described as impressive by BVA Secretary and Chief Referee – Yannick Chase.
At the presentation ceremony held in fading light immediately after the conclusion of the competition, BVA President, Gregory Rambarran complimented the players from West Berbice for being punctual and berated those from East Berbice for being very late.
He also took the opportunity to congratulate the respective winners, thanked the sponsor and officials and formally welcomed new affiliates – 3 Door Starters of D’Edward into the Berbice Volleyball fraternity.
Describing the event as a success, the Rambarran urged the players to have more respect for time and to raise the level of their performance. Trophies and cash were presented to Glasgow and Jairam – male winners, Ricky and Azeer – second place.
Female winners Harris and Ramkissoon also received trophies and cash as did Moore and Rodney for placing first in zone 2 and Glasgow and Jairam for being second in zone 2.
The mixed pair of Choomani Khan and Jason Johnny also received trophies and cash.
Trophies and medals were presented to Robin Rampersaud, Moore and Harris for outstanding performances, while Rodney received the Most Valuable Player trophy for being the best player on show.
The trophies and cash prizes were presented by female spectators present and officials of the BVA -Levi Nedd and Yannick Chase, in the absence of the sponsor who is currently overseas.
Meanwhile affiliates of the BVA who were absent from the Referees Course held on Sunday, April 29th were disciplined for their non attendance and informed to seek registration with the BVA before the next scheduled competition.
