After reading the ‘letter to sports Editor’ column in last Friday’s edition of your newspaper, I would like to respond to Hakim Khan’s letter which captioned ‘North Essequibo condemns the silencing of Mr. Holder by the ECB’. The letter stated that “An Under-15 player who is a relative of the ECB Under-15 Coach was selected for the County and subsequently for the Country in 2013. A Senior Coach of the ECB knew that the player was over-aged based on his records but the ECB, including the junior coach who also is a selector thought otherwise. He subsequently had to be withdrawn from the national team after he could not have produced his birth certificate”.
Sir, as a senior coach attached to the ECB and the only one on the Essequibo Coast, I am unaware that any player was over aged who represented the county in any age group tournament of recent. I would like the public to know that I do not share players’ profile with any unauthorized individuals. I only share such information with officials of the board. So what I would like Mr. Khan to do is indentify the coach because my interest is to do what I am being paid for, which is to develop the skills of the cricketers in Essequibo.
