The Riverton Suites Under-19 50 overs cricket competition bowls off on Saturday in the Upper Corentyne with three first round matches, organised by the Upper Corentyne Cricket association (UCCA).
The competition features seven U-19 teams in the Upper Corentyne area.
At a presentation ceremony, held earlier this year, Dr Pooran Seepersaud, proprietor of Riverton Suites, handed over the trophies and sponsorship cheque to the president of UCCA Dennis D’Andrade.
The UCCA president, in receipt of the items, praised Seepersaud, founder president of UCCA, for coming on board with the much needed sponsorship.
The first place trophy will be in memory of the late Dr Bud Persaud, father-in-law of Seepersaud, and the team that wins the trophy for three consecutive years will keep it. The trophy was described as a “masterpiece”.
First round matches for Saturday involve No 58/59 playing No 70 Young Stars at the No 59 ground, No. 72/73 taking on Skeldon Community Centre at Skeldon and Crabwood Creek Rising challenging Young Royals at Crabwood Creek; Corriverton Technical Institute have drawn a bye.
