Kaieteur News – “Kildonan has a special place/tradition in the history of Berbice Cricket and as the present representatives of the village, all of you have a duty to make sure that the tradition lives on. To do so, you need to unite as a group, develop a culture of discipline and invest in youth cricket,” stated Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) President Hilbert Foster as he addressed attentive executives and members of the Kildonan Cricket Club. The meeting was the continuation of the President’s outreach programme to member clubs of the Berbice Cricket Board.
Foster, reminded the members that when the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club was founded in 1990, Kildonan was very active at all levels of Berbice Cricket including junior cricket. The club had even reached the finals of an Under16 tournament, but over the last few years has only participated at the Second Division level. He urged the members to believe in themselves as the village had a lot of talent to return to the top. He spoke broadly on the need to invest in youth cricket as this would ensure that the club continues to exist in the future.
Foster disclosed that in 2021, the BCB would be hosting junior tournaments at the Under13, Under15, Under17 and Under19 levels and urged the club to play in at least one.
Foster, who is also the Secretary/CEO of the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club MS, handed over a financial donation to the Kildonan Club from the Basil Butcher Memorial Trust Fund. The donation would be used to purchase balls for matches and practice sessions. He also committed to assist the club with more balls, scorebooks, cricket equipment and to seek sponsorship for the cricket team.
As he always does, Foster urged the members to make a positive difference in their community by organising programmes to assist the less fortunate, elderly and youths. In his capacity of Secretary of the RHTYSC, he also committed to donate three special prizes for the hosting of a fundraising raffle. The prizes would be handed over tomorrow when the members are expected to meet to elect office bearers for the 2021/2022 period.
Region 6 RDC Councilor Colin E. Moore expressed thanks to Foster for his efforts to return Kildonan Cricket to the top of the field and urged the members present to be more committed. Kildonan resident and Vice President of the Berbice Cricket Board, Qualis Winter, was also present and stated that the Village proud cricketing history should be the motivating factor for members. Winter, spoke on the importance of discipline as it was the foundation for success.
