5 Grenadians on Windward’s under-19 team

Five Grenadian under-19 Cricketers have been selected to represent the Windward Islands in the upcoming West Indies under-19 cricket tournaments to be played in St. Kitts later this month.

They are reserve Windward Islands’ batsman Keone George, middle-order batsman Roland Cato, fast bowler Preston Mc Sween, Shirman Lewis and debutante Kishon Mitchell. Players were selected following their outstanding performances in the just-concluded Windward Islands under-19 tournaments, which was held in Grenada last week.

The Windward’s team, which will be captained by St Lucian Larry Edwards, left Grenada yesterday for St Kitts following four days of preparation under the guidance of coach Raymond Duncan and Manager Ervin Warrickhan. The rest of the Windward’s team comprise: from St Vincent and the Grenadines: Ray Jordon, Gidron Pope, Denson Hoyte and Darius Martin; from St Lucia: Larry Edwards, Taryck Gabriel, Dorman Edwards and Tonius Simon, and from Dominica Giam Benjamin. The reserve players are Anson Latchman from St. Vincent; Davon George, Chad Phillip from Dominica; and Deron Hypolite from Grenada.

Meanwhile, St  Lucia captured the championship title in the competition, which ended on the weekend. The St Lucia team played unbeaten throughout the one-week event, losing only in the first inning to host and defending champion Grenada, who had to settle for a joint second place with St Vincent and the Grenadines. St Lucian Larry Edwards was named player of the tournament and Grenadian Keone George topped the batting with the most runs, which included a top score of 116 against St Lucia.

In a presentation ceremony to bring the curtains down on the tournament, President of the Grenada Cricket Association Garvin Taylor complimented the participating countries for a keenly-contested tournament, demonstrating to the rest of the region that Windward’s cricket is in good hands.

Taylor extended special thanks to all who have contributed in making the tournament a success. High on that list was the Ministry of Sports who was responsible for the grounds and also assisted in transporting the teams.

Head Cricket Coach in the Ministry of Sports Raphael Croney spoke on the Ministry’s behalf and thanked the Management of the various teams for accepting the conditions under which the teams were accommodated, and pledged the Ministry’s full support and commitment to cricket in the future.
