Albion cricket academy a huge success

first_imgPRESIDENT of the Berbice Cricket Board (BCB), Hilbert Foster, urged the 43 graduates of the Albion Community Centre Cricket Club’s annual cricket academy, last Saturday, to uphold the high tradition of the prestigious club.The club, which was founded over 60 years ago, has a very high reputation of producing top class players for Berbice, Guyana and West Indies.Foster spoke at length of the importance of education and pleaded with the attentive cricketers to stay in school, to obtain an educational background, since in today’s modern world, all sportsmen and sportswomen are expected to deal with the media, sponsors, agents and the general public.“National talent would only take you so far while an educational background would open doors of opportunities off the field,’ he stated.Foster also urged them to develop a culture of hard work, discipline and dedication, respect for the elderly and a love of making a positive difference in the lives of those less fortunate.He pledged the full support of his administration for the development of the game at the junior level and announced that in 2019, the BCB would host tournaments at the Under-13, U-15, U-17, U-19, U-21 and U-23 levels.
