The ten (10) first division cricket clubs in the Ancient County
of Berbice on Wednesday last received $240,000 worth of white cricket balls compliments of GT&T and the Berbice Cricket Board during a simple ceremony at the BCB Office, New Amsterdam.
The Clubs are West Berbice, Blairmont, Edinburgh, Police, Memorex Bermine, Young Warriors Universal DVD, Albion Community Centre, Rose Hall Town Gizmos & Gadgets, Port Mourant and Skeldon Community Centre.
Chairman of the Board’s Special Events Committee, Hilbert Foster at the presentation ceremony disclosed that the donation was part of the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company’s sponsorship of the Berbice Inter County teams.
The sponsorship caters for assistance to clubs as part of the Board’s effort to assist their affiliates to fulfill their mandate of playing at all levels.
Foster noted that in 2012 they have committed to assisting most of the clubs in Berbice, and to date clubs have received over $5M worth of items. The Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club Secretary/CEO stated that every Berbician should be proud of the outstanding work of the Berbice Board while noting that the GT&T Inter County sponsorship was the first of its kind in the history of the sport in Guyana.
BCB Treasurer Anil Beharry praised GT&T for its investment in Berbice and urged the representatives of the different clubs to not only take advantage of the opportunities provided by the Board but to work along with them to make sure that Berbice cricket continue its upward movement.
Board President Keith Foster recalled the state of the sport there one decade ago, pointing out that it was due to the consistent, committed work of every executive member of his administration that the standard is at its highest level ever.
The President pledged that the work of the BCB would expand even more in 2012 especially in coaching and assistance to clubs.
Representatives of the clubs expressed gratitude to GT&T and the Board for their assistance.
