Murray, who played for Grenada, Windward Islands and West Indies, is spearheading a series of initiatives under the Junior Murray Brand, including an academy, according to Made In Grenada, the strategic partner responsible for the overall management of the brand and its activities.

“Since Saturday November 23rd, introductory and registration sessions have begun at the Roy St John Playing Field and will continue every Saturday until the end of this school term,” said a statement from Made In Grenada.

“The Academy resumes in the new school term and Teachers and Parents are encouraged to ensure the attendance of those young ones interested in learning the game or improving their skills”.

Preparations have also started for the staging of the first annual Junior Murray/Made In Grenada Celebrity Cricket match in February.

The inaugural match will form part of the festivities to celebrate Grenada’s 40th anniversary of Independence.

The match will feature local personalities from the sporting and entertainment fraternities along with regional and international cricket friends of Junior Murray.
