RHTY&SC congratulates female team on U-19 Championship win

first_imgTHE Management of the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, MS, would like to offer congratulations to the Guyana Under-19 Female Cricket Team for their championship victory in Trinidad.Special mention must be made of our eight members who made up more than half of the team while we must acknowledge the outstanding leadership of our member, Ms Shabika Gajnabi, who led by example on and off the cricket field.The Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, MS, has always instilled in our members that success only comes through hard work, dedication and faith in God. The girls have done all of us proud and together they are the result of a carefully planned cricket development programme which allows them to fulfil their true potential.The Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, MS, is the only cricket club to have a female cricket team and it is simply unbelievable that ten years after the team’s formation, no other cricket club in Guyana has been able to do the same. Talking about the development of the game and doing something about it are two different things. One is left to wonder what would happen to female cricket in Guyana if the Rose Hall Town Metro Female Cricket Team ceases to exist. The Guyana Cricket Board has to do more for female cricket apart from hosting a sub-standard Inter-county tournament and holding a one-week camp.Special effort must be made to have at least a dozen female cricket teams in Guyana and this must done by investing heavily into clubs and the school system. To Shabika Gajnabi, Sheneta Grimmond, Plaffiana Millington, Mariam Samaroo, Rashana Lynch, Uma Matadin and Sleema Arokium a big congrats and we salute you for being outstanding representatives of our cricket development programme, which is led by our hardworking head coach Delbert Hicks.Congrats are also extended to Mandy Mangru who had an outstanding series. Mandy has been registered as a Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club member but to date has not played a match. A big congrats to Gajbaibi for becoming the first Guyana female captain to win a regional tournament!The Management of the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, MS, would like to also express gratitude to Ms Avia Lindie and Metro Office Supplies for their investment into the female team which has produced a huge pool of Berbice, Guyana and West Indies female cricketers.As a club, we would continue and even expand our investment in female cricket. The Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club would also be honouring our eight female members also Junior Sinclair, Kevlon Anderson, Sylus Tyndall and Kevin Sinclair who represented Guyana at the junior level during 2017.last_img read more
