The Guyana Amazon Warriors team in keeping with tradition, recently paid a special visit to Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo while presenting a cheque to the youths of the ongoing Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) Summer Camp.
Team Manager Omar Khan on behalf of the team, presented Prime Minister Nagamootoo with an autographed cricket bat, bearing the signatures of all the players who represented the franchise in this year’s Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
Khan said that it was the norm for senior government officials to receive such a token as it is a way of saying thank you for the support given to the team through their journey in the CPL. The Prime Minister also congratulated the team for playing the way it did and told the players not to be deterred by their loss in the finals, as Guyanese were still proud of them.
Over at the DCC Summer Camp which is into its final week of activities, Khan presented the club along with a cheque for an undisclosed amount on behalf of the franchise who for the second consecutive year showed its support for the camp which has produced numerous National and West Indies players at all levels including two Amazon Warriors, Chris Barnwell and Paul Wintz.
President of DCC, Alfred Mentore accepted the cheque on behalf of the Club and said that the donation was timely and will help to further sustain the camp over the duration of its final week of activities.
Guyana played well throughout the CPL, managing to reach the finals for a record third time before bowing out to the side which seems to be their boogeyman as of late, Jamaica Tallawahs who also etched their name in the competition’s history books by becoming the first team to win the title, two out of the four editions.
