Cricket will be played at all levels and will include all clubs who come under the UCCA.” He thanked Mr. Baijnauth for his support of the Association, and for his sponsorship of the competition. This he said, will definitely boost the morale of players in the area, and encourage them to forge ahead with their cricketing careers. He is appealing to members of the business community and to the general public to support the UCCA, and help to mould the young and aspiring cricketers in their game.

Mr. Sugrim is asking all Clubs to prepare their list of 14 players who will represent them in the upcoming competition. He further stated that plans are in place for an Under-17 competition in January 2018, which will seek to shortlist players for trials in the Berbice Under-17 team.
