The Assuria Insurance Company on Friday last handed over a cheque for $170,000 to the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club for the RHTY&SC/Assuria Insurance 5-overs cricket tournament scheduled for Sunday June 28 at the Albion Cricket ground.
The presentation was held at the Suriname based company’s newly opened sub-office in Williamsburg, Rose Hall Town in the presence of General Manager Yogindra Arjune and RHTYSC Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster.
The RHTYSC/Assuria 5 overs tournament would be contested by twelve teams: Rose Hall Town ‘A’, Rose Hall Town ‘B’, D ‘Edward, Blairmont, Young Warriors, Albion, Tamarind Root, Port Mourant, Yakusari, Whim, Courtland and Block 4 Tain.
The winner takes home $70,000 and a trophy, runner-up $30,000 and a trophy and the losing semifinalist $20,000. The main aims of the tournament are to promote the game across Berbice at the Second Division Level, to promote the club’s Say No to Drugs and Yes to Education message and to inform the general public about the work of the newly established Assuria branch in Berbice.
Foster also disclosed that the tournament would be dedicated to the memory of the club’s late Assistant Organising Secretary, Simon Budhoo who died recently at the age of 41. Foster stated that the club is unmatched in its promotion of cricket in Guyana and even does more work than some other cricket boards.
He expressed confidence that the relationship between the club and the Insurance giants would grow stronger and most importantly would make a positive difference in the lives of the less fortunate and youths.
The tournament will bowl off at 09:00hrs on Sunday next and teams are only allowed two first division players in their squads. Players debarred by the Berbice Cricket Board and other County Boards in Guyana would not be allowed to play.
