Community Clubs in the Little Diamond to Herstelling area on the East Bank of
Demerara benefitted from the receipt of three Kiddy Cricket kits from the Scotia Bank Kiddy Cricket Programme Friday at the Farm Community Centre ground. This Programme is been carried out by the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) throughout Guyana.
President of the East Bank Cricket Association, Anand Kalladeen, said he is happy to have the gears as they would help to promote cricket on the East Bank. He thanked Scotia Bank and the GCB for recognizing that Clubs on the East Bank are in need of these kits, adding that he would like all clubs in his Association to eventually have at least one kit.
Overseer of the Little Diamond/Herstelling NDC, Diane Barath, also thanked Scotia Bank and GCB for remembering them in this venture. She stated that the Farm ground has recently been resuscitated after a number of years and people are noticing, especially little children who are turning out in large numbers everyday to play cricket. She said the gears would be extremely helpful in developing these young aspiring cricketers.
Also present at the ground during the handing over of the kits were East Bank Cricket Association Vice-President, Rohan Sarjoo and the Little Diamond/Herstelling NDC
Works Chairman, Wilfred Bassant.
GCB Territorial Development Officer, Colin Stuart, highlighted the Scotia Bank Kiddy Cricket Programme to the East Bank Cricket Association. Stuart, who is tasked with administering the Programme in Guyana, said the involvement of Scotia Bank Kiddy Cricket Programme cannot be underestimated. It is seen as a meaningful development initiative. This collaboration between the GCB and Scotia Bank in Guyana is very critical as the equipment used, assist in the development of young talents who would be exposed to the technical aspects of the game in a fun related environment, and at the same time ensure that they learn the laws of the game. The TDO noted that once they learn correct methods at an early age, it will be easier for them to focus on game situations later on.
