The Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club in 2009, 2010 and 2016 also received the Guyana Cricket Board Club of the Year Award under the sponsorship.
Foster stated that Gizmos & Gadgets had provided the Club with comfort to play at the Under-21 and First Division levels without worrying about the financial cost and this has responsible for its success story on the field of play.

The team won the Busta Cup in 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016.
Special thanks was extended to CEO Mangar for his continued confidence in the two teams, which over the years have successfully completed over 500 personal development programmes under the Sub-headings of Sports, Culture, Charity, Education, Youth Development, Social, Religious, Anti-Crime, Anti-Alcohol among others.
Manger, in brief remarks stated that he was delighted to have his business brand associated with the RHTY&SC noting that they have represented the brand well over the years. Gizmos & Gadgets he stated would continue its support to and for the club which he said was a pacesetter and role model for others to emulate.
Despite the slowdown in business, the sponsorship, the RHTY&SC is top priority for Gizmos & Gadgets and Mangar expressed confidence that the relationship would be strengthened in the future.
The RHT Gizmos & Gadgets Under-21 Team is being led by Kevin Sinclair while Shawn Pereira is the skipper of the First Division Team.
