Guyana Chronicle article.
Georgetown, Guyana - The Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) with sponsorship from the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club last Saturday donated 16 Christmas hampers to the Berbice Cricket Umpires Association (BCUA), making it the fifth successive year that the two organisations have joined hands to bring cheer to the BCUA.
Recently reappointed BCB Special Events Committee Chairman and RHTYSC Secretary/CEO, Hilbert Foster, in handing over the hampers worth $70 000, praised the umpires for the professional way they operated and for the high standard they bring to cricket in Berbice.
The BCB, Foster stated, was very satisfied with the outstanding relationship it shared with the Umpires Association and he urged them to always strive for excellence and to never lower their standards.
Cricket in Berbice, Foster disclosed, would see massive progress during 2014 with the Special Events Committee back in action after a six-month absence due to his health and he wished the umpires and their families a Merry Christmas, a very productive and peaceful 2014.
He also expressed the wish that the cordial relationship between the BCB and the BCUA would be strengthened in the future.
President of the BCUA, Roshan Moakan, expressed gratitude to the BCB for its kind gesture and he pledged that all umpires in Berbice would work hander in the new year so that Berbice cricket would be taken to a new level.
The BCB would also be donating toys to children’s homes in Berbice and will also be visiting the Children’s Ward at the New Amsterdam Hospital today.
