In a small ceremony at the Georgetown Club Cricket (GCC) pavilion Saturday afternoon during the Demerara and Essequibo clash, Uiniversal Sports Club donated cricket equipment and items to National Under-19 cricketers Ronsford Beaton, Amir Khan and Chanderpaul Hemraj.
The donated essentials included three cricket T-shirts, three bat rubbers and three cases of tennis balls.
Universal Sports Club Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Budhan, in presenting the items to the players, said he did it with the simple aim of giving the players motivation as they strive for greater fortunes in the game of cricket.
He encouraged them to be role models on and off the field and said he wished Beaton and Khan especially all they best in the upcoming West Indies Uder-19 tour to India, where they will play against the hosts, Sri Lanka and Australia in a quadrangular tournament starting from September 27.
Beaton and Khan were also promised that for every four wicket haul that they take on the tour, cash incentives awaits them.
