WICB praises Guyana's Under-19 double success
Published on August 19, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

KINGSTON, Jamaica -- All round praises are in store for Guyana as two weeks after winning their 3-Day title, they were just crowned Regional Under-19 One-Day winners.

President of the West Indies Cricket Board, Dave Cameron is urging every member of the winning team to chase their dreams with lots of effort and passion.

“The dominance of Guyana at this level is encouraging and we are hoping these players will grow into becoming some of our better players at the senior level,” said Cameron.

The president, in congratulating the team, praised winners of individual awards and emphasised the importance of the tournaments of this kind as they help towards identifying players that may have the ability to play at the highest levels of the game and help restore the rich legacy of West Indies cricket.

“On behalf of the directors, management and staff of the WICB, congratulations to the Guyana Under-19 team at this wonderful moment of success,” said Cameron.

“We commend each member of the team for their personal commitment and sacrifice to play their part in this memorable achievement. May this success inspire you and other young players to push for greater accomplishments in time to come.”

Cameron also took the opportunity to thank the Guyana Cricket Board for their sterling work organising the tournament without major incident.

“There is always an additional responsibility when you are entrusted with the care of young people and the GCB has shown enormous vigilance in ensuring that they were safe, comfortable and were able to focus on the purpose for which they came,” said Cameron.
