Tapeball cricket has lost another great warrior
Only last year November the Tarmac Sports Club lost Patrice Welcome their inspirational Captain by accident on Aubrey Barker Road. Now the former National Tape Ball Champions is mourning again, this time for the charismatic fast bowler Garfield Morris. Morris passed away Monday 10th July 2012 after a brief illness. Known more for his exploits for Police Sports Club in Division one cricket, he also had the distinct honour of representing Demerara several times at the Senior Inter County level.
In 2005 Morris was appointed Captain of the First Demerara Inter County Tapeball Team, and at the helm he ensured Demerara won both matches against Essequibo in 2005.
Sleep on Champ.
