Assad Fudadin and Jonathan Foo named MVP’s
“We at the Berbice Cricket Board are very proud of you and your success and it is our hope that Berbice with your support would continue to dominate cricket in Guyana. The most important advice I want to share with you is that we must be satisfied with success in 2009 but that we must work harder and be more committed in 2010 so that we remain the best”.
Those were the words of Berbice Cricket Board President Keith Foster to members of the Berbice Under-19 and senior teams at a special luncheon hosted at the Annex Restaurant in Rose Hall Town to honour both teams for their successes in the Guyana Cricket Board Inter County competitions in 2009.
The luncheon and presentation ceremony was organized by the Board’s Special Events Committee whose Chairman Hilbert Foster updated the large gathering of players, officials and supporters on the progress of Berbice cricket during the past year.
A total of 14 tournaments were organized and off the field, over 50 programmes were held under the sub-headings of Education, Social and Public Relations, Charity, Tribute to Heroes, Coaching and Community Development.
Foster, who also serves as the Board’s Public Relations Officer, told cricketers that they are the Public Images of Berbice Cricket and must strive at all times to be positive Role Models to all.
President Keith Foster outlined his vision for the Berbice Cricket Board in 2010 while stating that cricket would be played at all levels, more coaching would be done at the junior levels while several more exciting off the field programmes and projects would be undertaken during the year.
Secretary of the Guyana Cricket Board and Director of the West Indies Cricket Board Anand Sanasie, speaking on behalf of the National body congratulated the two teams on their successes while urging them to be disciplined and hungry for more success.
Sanasie who is also a Demerara Cricket Board Vice President stated that he would love for members of both the Demerara and Essequibo Cricket Boards to be present to see how hard work and dedication can lead to success.
General Manager of the East Berbice Sugar Estate Peter Persaud in his feature address spoke on the importance of self-discipline and commitment in the pursuit of excellence.
Mr. Persaud, a passionate cricket fan, hailed the Inter County Champions on their performances but challenged them to be hungry for more success and to set the standard even higher in 2010.
He warned the Players that in this modern era success tends to leave youths’ complacent and reminded them that discipline is the key to success and would open doors for them.
Each of the players received a Certificate of Appreciation from the Board for their contributions to the teams.
