After an absence of two years, The Young Warriors Cricket Club of Cumberland Village, East Canje, Berbice, has recently launched its major fundraiser – Mash Cup 2019. This year’s event, even though a fundraiser, will be used by the Club to reconnect with its friends, supporters, sponsors and generally, the community.
Over the years, proceeds from this event have gone towards improvements to the Club’s facilities and cover the cost of the day-to-day functions. Many schools, places of worship and other charitable organisations also benefited. The
tournament will be played on Saturday, February 23 (Mashramani Day) and will involve second division teams from the area. No first division cricketer will be allowed to participate. Cash incentives and trophies will be up for grab along with lots of gate prizes.
Since the 2016 edition was deemed a success, the Club was quite appreciative of persons who made it possible. They are ANSA McAL, Attorney Mursalene Bacchus, Prakash Mahadeo of No 19, Ashiek and Son Motor Supplies and Auto Sales, Waqar Sahid of A Ally and Sons, the New Building Society Limited, Mortimer George, Jim Bacchus Travel Service, Republic Bank (Guyana) Ltd, Memorex Enterprise, Danzie’s Clothing, Footwear and Auto Sales, Lilboy Rice Complex, Extreme Trucking Service, Price is Right, Sharple Furniture Establishment, Kris Jagdeo General Contractor, Ahmad Mundal Satar, A Mahabir and Sons, Massy Distribution, Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club, Sukhpaul Business Enterprise, J’S Printery, Roshan Satar Supermarket, Rafeek Kassim, Suresh Persaud Auto Sale, Zai Permaul, Hand-In-Hand, Office Express, Anirudh Ramcharitar, Balram Shane and others.
The Club is encouraging parents and young kids to join the Club in an effort to return it to its former glory and produce talents, such as young flourishing West Indies batting star, Shimron Hetmyer. Anyone who wishes to support the event can make contact with Suresh Sripal on telephone numbers 644-7772 or 618-5770; Suresh Dhanai on telephone number 685-3101 or any other member of the Club.
