Since its formation in 1990 by three times Guyana and Commonwealth Youth Service Awardee, St. Francis Community Developers, the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club has assisted over one hundred rival cricket clubs and hundreds of young cricketers with millions of dollars worth of cricket gear and equipment.
