Plans by the Executives of the Berbice Cricket Board to return Berbice Cricket to its glory days were boosted by a donation of cricket gears to the Berbice Cricket Board on Tuesday last. The gears would be distributed to several Clubs who are making a return to the game after a period of inactiveness and other reasons. The donation of the gears was done at the Festival City Head Office of Food-for-the-Poor after a request was made by newly elected President of the Berbice Cricket Board, Hilbert Foster to Mr. Paul Chan-a-Sue, Chairman of the Group.
Foster stated that the Berbice Cricket Board was committed to assisting all Clubs in Berbice over a period of time and this is the first step in a long journey to make sure that every Club fulfills their mandates to members.
The donated gears would be given to Blairmont, Mount Sinai, Rose Hall Canje, Police, Mental Hospital, Whim, Kildonan, No.73 Cricket Club, Upper Corentyne, Tucber Park and Young Warriors.
Foster stated that efforts are also being made to obtain cricket balls and scorebooks for some Clubs as the Berbice Cricket Board is determined to assist as much as possible. Foster urged Clubs to organise fundraising events so as to secure funds for themselves as 2018 promises to be busiest year in Berbice Cricket. With such a work load of tournaments, Clubs would be hard pressed to obtain cricket equipment, balls and other cost associated with transportation, uniforms and meals. The Clubs, Foster stated could organise events such as Raffles, Bar-B-Que, 20/20 Tournaments and Bingos.
Foster expressed gratitude to Food-for-the-Poor, especially its Chairman Paul Chan-a-Sue, Chief Executive Officer Kent Vincent and Senior Manager Jimeel Davis for their co-operation. Food-for-the Poor, Foster noted is a Champion of Berbice Cricket as it has assisted numerous times in the past under the leadership of the late Leon Davis. The Berbice Cricket Board President expressed confidence that the gears would be used properly and noted that he is delighted to observe that Clubs like Guymine, Mount Sinai, Kildonan, Mental Hospital and Police are back on the field playing cricket. These Clubs, he stated would find it difficult at first but the Berbice Cricket Board President stated that with encouragement and assistance they would soon return to their former status of being among the best in Berbice. The Berbice Cricket Board, he stated wants more Clubs to be reformed as it would only assist Berbice Cricket to get stronger.
Senior Manager of Food-for-the-Poor Jimeel Davis in handing over the gears, hailed the work of the Berbice Cricket Board, which he has been following in the Media and stated that his organisation was pleased to assist after the request was made by the Berbice Cricket Board President.
