GCA aims to resume city competitions on January 27

Cricket action in the City is set to take shape January 27 as the Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) aims to conclude a number of tournaments that would have rolled over from 2017.

This is according to Chairman of the Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) Competitions Committee, Shaun Massiah.

Massiah, when contacted, indicated that the GCA, providing that the weather holds up, aims to have the GISE/Star Party Rental/Trophy Stall first-division, two-day tournament, the Noble House Seafoods second-division tournament and the New Building Society second-division, limited overs tournaments concluded.

City fans, however, will most likely pay keen interest to witness the highly-anticipated Carib Beer, first-division T20 final between archrivals, defending champions Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) and the Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC).

Both clubs, if at full strength, should present a treat for fans with the likes of Christopher Barnwell, Keemo Paul, Sherfane Rutherford and Kemol Savory expected to turn out for DCC while GCC will look to dethrone their rivals with strong performances from national skipper Leon Johnson, Anthony Adams, Ronsford Beaton and Robin Bacchus.
