The Special Events and 75th Anniversary Committee of the Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) headed by Hilbert Foster have announced some minor changes to its Diamond Jubilee programme for the month of September.
The awards presentation and dinner which was scheduled for September 20 will now be held on August 31. The BCB is also asking if all its ex-test cricketers, national junior and senior cricketers and ex-administrators can take note of the change of date. The awards ceremony is being sponsored by overseas based Guyanese Bobby Deonarine of Tenelec, Motie Phanisnaraine of Golden Arrow Sports Bar and Jameel Mohamed from City Bias Stitching Company.
The month of celebration will be launched with a religious event on the evening of August 30 which will be followed by two T20 matches on August 31st, the first match commencing at 9:00hrs will include Under-19 players while the second, which starts at noon, will involve the senior Berbice cricketers.
The dinner and awards ceremony commences at 6 pm later that day at the St. Francis Training Centre.
