Georgetown, Guyana - The Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) and Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club (RHTY&SC) on Sunday last joined hands in another major programme to honour nine (9) outstanding cricket coaches in the Ancient County.

The RHTY&SC over the years has co-sponsored numerous programmes with the BCB and the Tribute to Coaches Programme was held to honour Coaches whose contributions to the development of talent in Berbice were vital to the county’s successes.

Those honoured were presented with special hampers donated by Managing Director of Ansa McAl and Patron of the RHTYSC Ms. Beverley Harper. They are Albert Smith, Tremayne Smartt, Andre Percival, Winston Smith, Renwick Batson, Michael Franco, Floyd Benjamin, Julian Moore and Hubern Evans.

RHTY&SC Secretary/CEO and former Chairman of the BCB Special Events Committee Hilbert Foster described the Coaches as pillars of Berbice cricket and noted that they worked hard to develop talent in the Ancient County.

Foster noted that the Club was the first to retain a paid Coach in Berbice cricket and several others are now following in its footsteps. He urged the Coaches to not only work harder but that they would continue to maintain their remarkable personal standard.

The long serving Secretary/CEO recognized the support of Ansa McAl describing it as extraordinary whilst also highlighting the cooperation of BCB Secretary Angela Haniff in making the programme successful.

Foster also disclosed that the RHTY&SC and the BCB would shortly be making donations to eight clubs in Berbice. They will receive items including water pitchers, dustbins and score books while a massive Coaching programme would soon be launched to assist youth players. The Coaching Programme would involve four three-day clinics for fast bowlers, spinners, batsmen and wicket keepers.

The RHTY&SC is unselfishly committed to the development of the game in Berbice and would continue to support the BCB in all of its programmes.
