Former National Cricketer gives back to Cricket Featured

Former Grenada and Windward Island middle-order Batsman Kester Sylvester has given back to cricket by outfitting the Grenada national under-19 Cricket Team. After a successful run in 2012, Sylvester who now resides in the United States, and once wore the national outfit as an under-19 cricketer, decided to continue his support for the national team by providing them with a complete kit, which includes warm-up shirts and sweat suits for the duration of the tournament.

The Grenada team is now engaged in the Windward Islands Tournament taking place here in Grenada. The uniforms were handed over to the management of the Grenada under-19 team at the La Sagesse playing field last week Thursday by Kester’s brother - John Sylvester, himself a former national cricketer.

Team Coach and former national wicket-keeper-batsman - Raymond Duncan, who initiated the move to securing the sponsorship, complimented Kester for what he dubbed a timely gesture and assured him that this will go a long way in restoring confidence and pride in the young cricketers. Coach Duncan said although Kester might not be that big businessman, he took a bold decision to assist the young cricketers and ensured that they did not find themselves in the same situation that he found himself while playing for Grenada. Duncan also took the opportunity to thank the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Sports and the Grenada Cricket Association for the role they played in getting the uniforms into Grenada.

Receiving the uniforms on behalf of the team was team Manager Frank James, and like the coach, he thanked Kester for his contribution and all who contributed in one way or another in getting the uniforms into Grenada. James is of the view that having a uniformed team goes a long way in getting players to have the correct mindset prior to competition.
