Since its resuscitation the club’s administration has been very active with its many programmes on and off the field. In summarizing, Baksh stated that 2012 has been another progressive year for the club. He mentioned that although cricket has been unstable in Guyana during the year the club has stayed focused on its aims and objectives to create opportunities for youngsters and prepare them for elevation to higher heights.
During the year also there were several coaching sessions, food sales, cricket summer academy and outreach charity programmes which helped to boost and rebuild the image of the club.
The club participated in all Cricket competitions run under the auspices of the Berbice Cricket Board, had representatives in the Berbice teams in all the age groups including Under-15, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 levels.
