Guyana’s largest bakery Bakewell, on Thursday last renewed its sponsorship of the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club Under-17 second-division teams for the 15th successive year. The sponsorship would cover the two teams’ participation in the Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) tournament.
Hilbert Foster, Secretary/CEO of the club at the presentation said that Bakewell has been one of their official sponsors since 2000 and has played a major role in its development into Guyana’s leading youth and sports organization.
The second-division team has won four titles and the Under-17 team, three titles under the Bakewell sponsorship. The company has also played a major role in the development of players including Esuan and Royston Crandon, Assad Fudadin, Dominic Rikhi, Jason Sinclair, Khemraj Mahadeo, Akshay Homraj, Eon Hooper, Shemaine Campbelle, Erva Giddings, Clinton Pestano, Murphy La Rose, Shevon Marks, Plaffina Millington and Shailendra Shameer among dozens of others.
Bakewell, Foster stated should be proud of the role it has played in the growth of Fudadin, Royston Crandon, Shemaine Campbelle and Erva Giddings who have all played for the West Indies.
The veteran cricket administrator disclosed that as the club prepares to celebrate its silver anniversary in 2015, it has started to restructure its cricket sections under the supervision of Cricket Manager Moonish Singh and Coach Winston Smith.
Special emphasis is being placed on the development of new talent at the junior level and to ensure that they fully understand the club’s formula for success; discipline, commitment, faith in God and hard work.
Foster informed Bakewell that the Under-17 team earlier in the week had reached the final of the BCB Under-17 tournament while the second-division side has commenced play in the NBS tournament.
The Under-17s will be captained by national player Brandon Prasad with Berbice Under-15 Captain Kelvon Anderson as his deputy. Shailendra Shameer is captain of the second-division unit with Prasad as his deputy.
Moonish Singh assured Bakewell that every member of the two teams were grateful for its support and has committed themselves to representing the company’s brand with pride and passion this year. Singh also stated that while the Under-17 team is confident of continuing its dominance at this level, club management has decided that the second-division team would be used to blood the younger players to a higher level in an effort to develop their talent.
Bakewell’s General Manager, Rajin Ganga expressed his company’s pleasure to be associated with the club as it is without doubt the most dynamic and productive youth and sports club in Guyana.
Bakewell, Ganga stated was satisfied with the clubs’ representation of its brand and noted that the company would continue its support in the future. Ganga also handed over $40,000 worth of trophies for the club’s 24th annual awards ceremony scheduled for May 18.
