GCA looking to start season by month end – CC Chairman Massiah
Chairman of the Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) Competitions Committee, Shaun Massiah told Kaieteur Sport yesterday that they are looking to resume their competitions by this month end weather permitting.
He is asking that clubs put their grounds in shape and make it readily available since there are three tournaments to run off namely the Hadi’s first division 2- day, Carib Beer first division T\20 and the Noble House Sea Foods second division 2-day.
Massiah stated that one of the problems they were faced with last season was the unavailability of grounds. “Clubs were hampered somewhat last season by not being able to play on the better grounds on a regular basis, this also prevented us from playing more matches”, he added.
Massiah informed that the GCA is planning to run off a number of clinics and will be looking to get more sponsors on board to assist. He is urging the players to keep themselves fit. “Our main aim is to produce talented players who can represent their county, country and the region with distinction”, he said.
The chairman indicated that he is satisfied with the 2013 season, but feels the players could have done a lot better. “There is always room for improvement and that is why the players must stay in shape”, he explained.
Massiah stated that he is pleased with the way the clubs co-operated with each other in 2013 and is hoping that they continue in the same vain.
Demerara Cricket Club (zone B) and Georgetown Cricket Club ( zone A) are currently leading the point’s standings in the Carib Beer first division t\20 with 52 and 36 points respectively, while Transports Club (zone A) with 38 pints from two games and Gandhi Youth Organisation (zone B) with 43 points from two matches head the second division points table.
