WBCA and Young Achievers congratulate Johnson


WHEN CHAIRMAN of Selectors Rayon Griffith handed the six-foot five Raun Johnson his debut cap last Friday afternoon, he confirmed the former national Under-19 fast bowler as the third player from within the West Berbice Cricket Association (WBCA) and Young Achievers Youth and Sports Club within the last decade to play for Guyana at the senior level.Yesterday, both the WBCA and AYSC extended congratulations to Johnson for his selection, saying in a press release, “Over the years Johnson has proved his ability with the ball and it is no surprise that the national selectors have recognised his abilities and put him to the test.”
Johnson has played for the AYSC for a number of years and over that period of time has given lots of commitment to the game at all levels and stages and is considered to be another role model for the youths in West Berbice, Berbice and Guyana at large.
The Association is calling on all the other youths in West Berbice to follow the example of this young man who last year was named Cricketer-of-the-Year for AYSC and aim for the top with strong commitment to the game.
Both the WBCA and AYSC wish Johnson all the best in the future and hope that he will continue to show the commitment and passion for the game in the most positive way as he normally does and that he will continue his good performance.
Congratulations once more and best wishes!
