GCA action resumes this weekend


FOLLOWING an unscheduled break that was caused by the inclement weather and the country’s 43rd Republic celebrations, cricket action, which is held under the auspices of the Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA), will resume this weekend in both the first and second division categories respectively.

Hadi’s World Incorporated is the sponsor of the GCA’s two-day first division competition and four matches will be played in this tournament, commencing at 09:30hrs each day.
At Eve Leary, Hortence Isaacs and Cyril Garnath will call play in the action between Police and Guyana National Industrial Corporation, former first class umpire Eddie Nicholls and Ryan Banwarie will be the men in charge of the Everest Cricket Club/Demerara Cricket Club contest at Camp Road.
At the Malteenoes Sports Club ground on Thomas Lands, where the game will be making a return following the renovation of that ground, the home team will take on their neighbours Transport Sports Club, under the supervision of Montgomery Chester and Matthew Kissoon.
The Noble House Seafoods-sponsored second division tournament will see two matches played from 11:00hrs each day, with Everest looking to resist an arrest from Police, with Randolph Rose and Zaheer Mohammed being the officials to this contest which takes place at the Gandhi Youth Organisation ground.
At the Muslim Youth Organisation ground, Linden Matthews and Clyde Layne would look to restore order when Georgetown Cricket Club and Guyana Defence Force face each other.
