Upper Corentyne Cricket Association benefits from scorebooks donation
The Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club, MS continued its unmatched reputation of assisting other Clubs and Cricket Associations to fulfil their mandate by making a donation of scorebooks worth ,000 to the Upper Corentyne Cricket Association (UCCA).
Club Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster and Executive member Mark Papannah visited the upper Corentyne area to make the presentation to UCCA President Dennis De’ Andrade and Vice President Sydney Jackman.
Foster in brief remarks stated that the RHTY&SC, MS over the last twenty years has shared out over M worth of sport gears to schools, Non-Governmental Agencies, churches, youth and sports organisations across Berbice. He stated that the RHTY&SC was pleased to assist the UCCA as the body was without doubt one of the most active cricket association in Guyana with the hosting of cricket and cricket development programmes.
The RHTY&SC, MS Secretary/CEO blasted some cricket administrators in Guyana who seems only to be interested on holding on to power or seeking to gain power without devoting any energy or effort to make a positive difference to the game of cricket. He lambasted some cricket administrators at the Club level who seems only interested in blasting others on Facebook and noted that progress like those at the RHTY&SC, MS is only achieved through hard work, vision and a strong desire to assist others to develop.
The long standing Secretary/CEO also disclosed that the RHTY&SC was currently working on several proposals to assist numerous young cricketers and Clubs with equipment. The Club would also be targeting cricketers along Berbice in a massive Say No to Drugs campaign which would be unveiled shortly and the UCCA is invited to submit the names of ten Clubs for the “Say No to Drugs Cricket tournament.”
Foster also pledged that teams in the Upper Corentyne area would be invited in the proposed cricket tournament that the Club would be hosting later in 2016 including the RHTY&SC/Ministry of Health Say No to Suicide Under 17 inter Club tournament which will begin shortly.
UCCA President Dennis De’ Andrade hailed the RHTY&SC, MS for its continued assistance to cricket in the Upper Corentyne Area, noting that the Club has assisted several times in the past. The donation of the scorebooks was important, he stated as several Clubs were observed soring in exercise books and reassured the RHTY&SC executives that the scorebooks would be used for their intended purpose. The UCCA President also committed his executives to working harder to promote cricket in the sub-association in an effort to return Berbice to its rightful place in Guyana’s cricket.
