The presentation ceremony was done in the office of the Officer in charge of Sub Division No. One New Amsterdam/Canje East Bank and East Coast Berbice, Deputy Superintendent Guy Nurse at, Couburg Street and Strand, New Amsterdam, Berbice.
King, a resident of Canefield East Canje, is a student of the Tutorial Academy Secondary School. He recently joined the Young Warriors Cricket Club which is headquartered in East Canje. King received a bat, a pair of batting gloves, helmet, and batting pads.
Nurse in remarks expressed gratitude on behalf of the Commissioner and Commander and officers and ranks of Police B Division. He stated that the force is extremely pleased to be in a position to hand over the set of gear to young King. He said that it is commendable for King at a young age to be focused on a future career. He stated that from information garnered King has shown tremendous dedication, talent and promise. As such the Police Force had no hesitation in assisting him.
Nurse noted that youths are our future and the Police Force will endeavor in every way possible to assist them in their development, as long as it is beneficial to the society.
Nurse stated that, “I know how difficult it is at times for young athletes to make it to the top. It is our desire to always assist those who are willing to make a positive contribution to society.”
”The gear donated should go a far way in helping King achieving his goal.” He urged him to, “inculcate good discipline, be smart, listen and place your education first.”
King is an all-round player who bats up the order and also bowls off spin.
In responding both King and his mother, who is also a member of the Guyana Police Force, expressed heartfelt thanks to Commander Assistant Commissioner Ian Amsterdam, Superintendent Lyndon Hyles, Deputy Superintendents Nurse and Marlon Taylor and the rest of the Guyana Police Force for assisting with the much needed gear. King in addition stated that he is very thankful for the assistance which will give him a much needed boost in his cricketing career.
