Home Sports Mc Gill Super Stars Sports Club urges adherence to COVID-19 safety guidelines
The Canal #1-based Mc Gill Super Stars Sports Club, which has been absent from competitive cricket for approximately 4 months because of the COVID-19 pandemic, has issued an earnest appeal to its active members not to participate in any illegal competition hosted by any private individual.
This is because the club wants to play its part in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. The club further desires to educate its members and those of the community in which it resides about the dangers of the novel coronavirus, and how to stay safe from the deadly virus.
In terms of the players keeping fit, everyone is doing independent work. The club aims not to hold any large gathering like practice or meeting and such like. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a halt to cricket being played countrywide, but members of the club are doing independent work to keep themselves fit and ready for the soon anticipated resumption of cricket.
On 24th April 1992, the now popular Mc Gill Super Stars Sports Club was founded by members of the agricultural village of Canal #1, located on the West Bank of the Demerara River. The Club was named after the Mc Gillivary Primary School in Canal #1 which most of its past and present members attended.The club has produced three national athletes over the years: right-handed batsman Travis Persaud, who captained the Guyana Under 19 Team to back-to-back regional titles in 2015 and 2016 in Jamaica and St Vincent respectively; left-arm spinner Kheshram Seyhodan; and left-arm seamer Daniel Basdeo, who was part of the Guyana Amazon Warriors Franchise in the inaugural season of the CPL.
