He is urging all clubs to ensure that their grounds are in playable condition so matches can be played in the various competitions. Clubs are reminded to ensure that all new members are registered with the GCA as well as players who were transferred during the window period that ended on July 31st, 2019, and to make certain that a copy of the transfer letter is being given to him; failure to comply will result in a breach in the GCA Rules and Regulations.
Speaking with Kaieteur Sport yesterday, Massiah said that after they had resumed cricket in January of this year, challenges were minimal when compared to last year. “I must say most of the clubs co-operated with the GCA in terms of making their grounds available and I would like to single out the Guyana Defence Force for allowing us to use their venue on a regular basis.”
“Currently we have the Toucan Distributors Under-15 competition to complete, the GISE, Star Party Rental and Trophy Stall 1st Division 2 days as well as the Noble House Seafoods 2nd Division two days. We are also working on sponsorship for a 1st Division 50 overs competition, Under 13, Under 17, 1st and 2nd division T/20 and 2nd division 40 overs completions. Potential sponsors are urged to come on board.”
Massiah pointed out that they also have the NBS Champion of Champions to run off. “This competition will see the winner of the NBS 2nd division 40 overs tournament in Georgetown playing the runner up of the Berbice competition, and the Berbice winner facing Georgetown runner up; the winners will battle in the final under lights at DCC.”
The chairman stated that he is also hoping to use the Transport and General Sports Club, Queens College and YMCA grounds during the new season, stating the use of these grounds will ease their challenges going forward.
“This season will run until December 16, weather permitting and we will very much appreciate the continued corporation from all Executives, Coaches and players from each club as well as the umpires and members of media,” he posited.
