BLAIRMONT Centre Cricket Club (BCCC) held its AGM last week Monday, where incumbent president Shabeer Baksh was re-elected unopposed to serve for another year by the confident electorate body.
Baksh will be assisted by Angad Ganesh who was elected first vice-president and Nanrandranauth Boodram the second vice-president, with the secretary being Richardo Bachan, while Shizad Ali will occupy the treasurer’s position and Kevon Jawahir will serve as the assistant secretary/treasurer.
The elected executive will meet today to appoint three other executives and form the various committees to manage the club’s business.
BCCC, which was once very active, was resuscitated on May 26, 2010 and has since been moving from strength to strength, with its administration being very active with many on- and off-the-field programmes.
Before the election, Baksh summarised last year’s performances by the club and deemed it another progressive year.
Although cricket has been unstable in Guyana, the club has stayed focused on its aim to create opportunities for youngsters and prepare them to elevate to higher heights, hosting several coaching sessions, food sales, summer academy and an outreach charity programme.
The club awaits its participation in all respective junior levels quarterfinals which are on hold because of the rainy weather.
To date, BCCC have won the Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) Under-21 and the Western Berbice Association Under-23 titles respectively, while the first division team have qualified for playoffs in the BCB/Carib Beer 20/20, having topped their zone.
In addition to the above-mentioned accolades, the first division team have to date won three of their four matches in the 2012 BCB/Tenelec competition.
The club participated in all cricket competitions run under the auspices of the BCB and saw a few of their players representing Berbice teams in all the age groups – Under-15, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 levels.
The club wishes to express special thanks to Banks DIH, Universal DVD and Universal Solutions, Berbice Cricket Board, Sterling Products, Baksh Travel Service, Basil and Son’s CD and DVD Store, Chowramottoo Construction and the various media houses for the support and cooperation given during the year, as the executives strive for added success in 2013.
