The Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) continued their tradition of recognizing members who have performed credibly and have gained selection to the Guyana and West Indies teams with a simple ceremony last weekend in
the Fred Wills Pavilion in Queenstown.
Kevin Boodie, Keemo Paul and Tevin Imlach will be leaving for various cricketing assignments overseas and were recipients of gifts from the cub that has nurtured their talents.
Boodie, is on his maiden trip with the Guyana Jaguars team that will take part in the West Indies Cricket Board’s NAGICO Super 50 Tournament; he received a bat from Mr. Brian Gladsford on behalf of Caribbean Clothing, a longstanding sponsor of DCC.
Imlach and Keemo Paul had outstanding performances in the Regional Under-19 tournament last year in Jamaica where they helped Guyana retain the Under-19 title, and will be heading off to Bangladesh with the West Indies Under-19 team for the International Cricket Council’s Under-19 World Cup from 22nd January to 14th February. Keemo Paul has played with the West Indies U-19 team previously while Imlach is on his first tour; both received a pair of batting gloves and US$100 each.
Among the attendees at the simple ceremony were Guyana’s Honourable Minister of Business Dominic Gaskin, Member of Parliament Trevor Williams, President of DCC Alfred Mentore, former test player Travis Dowlin and Christopher Barnwell.
Minister Gaskin said it was an honour to be at the “Home of the Legends” with such rich history in Guyana’s and West Indies cricket. Gaskin commended the club in preparing and producing players for the national and international teams and took the opportunity to congratulate the young players. He told them that they must be honoured to represent the respective teams and put their best foot forward. Trevor Williams, Dowlin, Barnwell, Lynden Lyght and Mark Griffith all wished the players well and reminded them not to be complacent while having fun and representing the club, the country and themselves proudly.
The players thanked members of the club for their support over the years.
