The West Indies Cricket Board recently announced that St. Kitts will host this year Regional Under-19 Cricket Championship from July 17 to August 21. This will be the third time St. Kitts will host the Regional Under-19 Championship.
According to Statistician Charwayne Walker, the only time Guyana departed Basseterre without the Regional Under-19 trophy was 1977, that was the first time the competition was held in the Leeward Islands, the Guyana Captain on the occasion was DCC Mark Harper. Sixteen years later, July 1993, Guyana led by Port Mourant’s Andre Percival returned to St. Kitts and brought home the Northern Telecoms trophy, Walker noted.
Please find below the first National Under-19 team that won a Championship in St. Kitts:
