NCBL to be completed in November
The National Community Basketball League (NCBL) will be completed in November according to a press release the Coordinators issued yesterday. The full text of the release read:
“The National Community Basketball League wishes to inform basketball fans that we have reached the semi-final stages of the tournament that was originally scheduled to play on July 15, 2012, but there was some breakdown in communication with the Executives of the NCBL and the National Sports Commission (NSC) and as a result, play was further rescheduled to July 21 & 22, 2012.
Those dates were however threatened with the unforeseen shootings and unrest that occurred in the Mining Town of Linden; the Central Mckenzie and Wismar teams were unable to travel for their semi-final appearances at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
The NCBL continued negotiations with the NSC to secure dates to complete to NCBL tournament, but has only been able to confirm November 11, 18, 26 & 29 due to the unavailability of the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall, which is fully-booked for a Science Fair then the Inter-Guiana Games training sessions.
The NCBL extends sincere apologies to all the fans and supporters for any inconvenience caused due to the lengthy delay; it was beyond our control.
We would also like to take time to thank our sponsors, Gift Land Office Max, White Castle Fish Shop, Guyana lottery Company, Western Union, Pamco mining, Impressions, Hits and Jams TV, BTV ch2, Gizmos and Gadgets, Digicom Computers, Nigel Hinds & Associates, Sculpture Kraft, Antartic Maintenance and Star Party Rentals.”
