Sukhpaul Business Enterprise on board for Upper Corentyne 20/20 cricket
The previously postponed Mohabir Baljeet Sukhpaul (Beto) Memorial 20/20 cricket competition organised by the Upper Corentyne Cricket Association (UCCA) and sponsored by Mr. Swarendra Sukhpaul (Suren) and Mr. Rajendra Sukhpaul, sons of the late Mohabir Baljeet Sukhpaul, will be replayed on Sunday 1st September at the Skeldon Community Centre Ground. The tournament, which was scheduled for earlier in the year, was postponed due to the inclement weather. With a change of the weather pattern the organisers and sponsors have taken the opportunity to make use of the seemingly favourable turn in the weather pattern.
The day’s activity will be played in memory of the late businessman
who passed away on March 29, 2012. The teams involved will be the four zone winners in the Upper Corentyne area from the current 40-over competition now being played.
The Trophies and sponsorship cheque to the tune of $155,000 was handed over to the President of the UCCA Mr. Dennis D’Andrade at a simple presentation ceremony held at the Sukhpaul’s Gas Station in Corriverton recently.
Starting time 9:00hrs, the winner and runner up will receive a substantial financial reward and trophies. There will also be trophies for man-of-the-match in all the games.
All proceeds from activity including gates, drinks and food rights will go towards the development of cricket in the Upper Corentyne Area.
The executive members of the Upper Corentyne Steering Committee which was formed December, 2012 are: Mr. Dennis D’Andrade, President, Sydney Jackman -Vice President, Winston Roberts – Secretary, Vicky Bharosay Treasurer, Mr. Krishna Rengasammy assistant Secretary/Treasurer.
The committee members are Mr. Chatrapaul Lionel, Ramnarine Dowlat, Lynden Murray, Aftab Aliahmad and Krishnand Jaichand. (Samuel Whyte)
