Kaieteur News article.
Georgetown, Guyana - The Guyana Tractor & Equipment (GUYTRAC), dealers in all heavy duty machinery and spares and the home of HYUNDAI machines of Lot 215 Cross Street, Mandela Ave, Alexander Village, Georgetown, has come on board with the Upper Corentyne Cricket Association (UCCA) to sponsor their first division team.
The sponsorship is to the tune of $300,000.
The formalities were done at a simple presentation ceremony held last Friday at Crabwood Creek the birthplace of proprietor of GUYTRAC Mr. Haresh Narine Sugrim, well known as ‘Chiney’ and his son Mr. Shamnarine Narine (Shaiyo).
At the ceremony the cheque and 20 GUYTRAC branded shirts were handed over to president of the UCCA Mr. Dennis De Andrade.
De Andrade in accepting the cheque thanked the GUYTRACT and stated that the Upper Corentyne 1st division cricket team is at the moment going through a rebuilding process and the kind hearted gesture by the businessman and his company could not have come at a better moment.
He said that they are in need of all resources available and welcome others to follow the path set by Mr. Singh.
Mr. Vicky Bharosay, treasurer of the UCCA took the opportunity on behalf of the association to thank Mr. H. N. Sugrim & his family for the much needed sponsorship and hopes that others can follow the path they have set for cricket development in the Upper Corentyne area.
He further noted that it has been over 10 years that the UCCA 1st division team had played in any BCB fixture until recently. He also expressed the hope that “this is a start of bigger and better things to come.” The UCCA first division team will be called “GUYTRAC UPPER CORENTYNE”.
