The Albion Community Centre Cricket Ground, would be a hive of activity this weekend as the Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) continues its effort to ensure players potential is fulfilled on the field.
The BCB would be hosting Coaching Clinics for spinners and batsmen as part of the comprehensive Dr. Tulsi Dyal Singh Countywide Coaching Programme. The spinning clinic for left arm spinners, leg spinners and off spinners would be held tomorrow while the batting Clinic would be held on Sunday.
Level III Coach Winston Smith would conduct the Clinics after earlier conducting similar clinics for wicket-keepers and fast bowlers. Board President Hilbert Foster who is spearheading the coaching programme, is urging all spinners and batsmen to take advantage of the clinics.
