Sep 22, 2012 Sports Comments Off on Members disappointed with state of T&GSC ground
One of the factors affecting the development of sport in Guyana is the lack of proper training facilities. Recently members of the Transport and General Sports Club, Thomas Lands, caught up with Kaieteur sport and expressed their disappointment with the state of the ground.
They said that they cannot use the facility because the outfield is rough and the grass has grown tall over the years. One of the members stated that they have to ask neighbouring clubs to use their grounds to prepare for cricket competitions which put them at a disadvantage since the other clubs have to use the ground as well and that they are frustrated with the situation.
They further stated that a senior official from the Ministry of Sport told them, during the launching of the current NBS\GCA second division tournament, that the Ministry have already allocated funds for the upgrading of several grounds in the city and encouraged clubs to apply which they (TSC) did a long time ago and are still awaiting a response.
Currently the ground is fenced and has two sightscreens. The members are calling on the Minister of Sport and the executive of the club to fix the facility as early as possible.
When contacted, Mr. Alfred King, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Sport said that a number of clubs who fulfilled the requirements have already benefitted and the committee will be meeting next week to review another set of applications. He also said that as long as clubs submit their estimate the money will be paid.
