Thirty-five U-15 players benefit
The Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) on Sunday last unveiled its Junior Elite Training Programme for 2011 which saw thirty-five Under-15 cricketers drawn from across the Ancient County attending the activity held at the Albion Community Centre Ground.
The aim of this programme is to ensure that the county’s best Under-15 players are kept in the best of shape – physically and mentally as they prepare for the defence of its Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) Under-15 Inter County title.
Public Relations Officer and Chairman of the Berbice Cricket Board Special Events Committee Hilbert Foster at the official launching challenged the young players to be disciplined at all times; to show commitment and most importantly to be prepared to work hard as it is the only way to success.
The BCB, Foster noted, has been pro-active since the rainy season has been affecting on field activity. As such the Board was using the opportunity to get players prepared for the upcoming tournament. He warned them that no form of indiscipline would be tolerated and urged them to work hard to impress the coaches and selectors during the programme.
Board President Keith Foster reminded the cricketers of the huge investment that the Board was making in their future and urged them to dedicate themselves to the task at hand. The President challenged the players to practice what they have learnt from the coaches at home in order to ensure development at a faster rate.
Junior Selection Committee Chairman Leslie Solomon informed that the final selection for the Cellink Berbice Under-15 team would be based on performances at the upcoming trial matches, past performances at the BCB Under-15 Inter-club level, discipline, attitude and potential for the future. The players after the official launching were involved in an intense four hour physical session with the coaches.
The programme continues this Saturday and Sunday, at the Albion Ground from 13:00 hours under the supervision of coaches Julian Moore and Winston Smith.
