The South Essequibo T20 tournament is set to be launched on Sunday at the New Opportunity Corps ground and the organisers are calling on the business community to lend support as they seek to develop the game in the area.
According to Debra Daniels of the Organising Committee, they continue to face challenges in gaining sponsorship and they are seeking support in raising $150,000 more for the successful staging of the competition.
Sunday launch will take the form of the teams competing in different skill activities and a seven-over knockout competition; this activity is sponsored by the Fredericks brothers, Norman and Norwayne while South Essequibo Cricket Committee President Andy Ramnarine will deliver the opening remarks.
All matches will be played at the NOC ground on February 2, 16 and 23. The winning team will take home $60,000, runner-up $40,000, third place $30,000 and fourth place, $20,000.
During the final, the organising body will be honouring several former cricketers and cricket administrators who have made lasting impressions on the game; they are Cyril Drakepaul, Linden Daniels, Rawdo Persaud, Boodnarine Ramnarine, Terry Paul, Garfield Paul, Sewlall Sookdeo, Carl Brandon and Jeff Jones the first Essequibian to score an inter county century.
The organisers have decided as to give the females and Under-15 male cricketers in the area much needed practice before the Essequibo inter county trials which is set to start shortly. They will be included in the teams taking part in the competition on Sunday.
As the organisers battle to attract sponsors, they are grateful to R. G Mining, Builders’ Hardware, Mr. Carl Brandon and Norman and Norwayne Fredericks for their support. As expected it would be the first time sixteen past and present cricketers will be involved in a competition in South Essequibo and they have been placed in the various teams.
