GCB/Dave Narine to launch Dave’s West Indian Imports & Exports Educational Trust Fund
The Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) will, next Friday, April 23, launch the Dave Narine Educational Trust Fund for 15 young cricketers across Guyana.
Under this initiative, each county would submit the names of 5 Under-17 cricketers who would each benefit from a grant of twenty thousand dollars ($20,000).
Two of the important criteria to qualify for the grant are personal discipline and school attendance.
The current GCB executives are cognisant of the constraints imposed on players by the COVID-19 situation; in particular, the present rise in recorded cases, and the financial impact on families, and will continue to monitor the situation to establish a time frame – based on professional advice – in which GCB competitions can recommence.
The GCB Cricket Development Committee (CDC) would continue to focus on the requisite programmes that are geared at on-field and off-field developmental activities.
The Guyana Cricket Board wishes to express immense gratitude to Mr Dave Narine, proprietor of Dave’s West Indian Imports and Exports, for his continued support of the development of youth cricket.
Mr Narine has expressed his intention to again donate a large quantity of exercise books for distribution to youth cricketers, and to renew his sponsorship of the Under-15 Inter-County Tournament.
Each county is being asked to submit, by Tuesday, April 20, their list of 5 players who would benefit from this initiative.
