Marketing Manager of Gizmos & Gadgets Ewart Sampson handing over the uniform to CEO/Secretary of the RHTY&SC Hilbert Foster
The Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club (RHTY&SC) Gizmos & Gadgets first division team last Friday received a major boost for the remainder of 2013 season when the official sponsor handed over new cricket uniforms, worth over $300,000.
According to a release from the club, the city based company Gizmos & Gadgets, has been sponsoring the RHTY&SC first division team over the last four years.
Secretary/CEO of the RHTY&SC Hilbert Foster expressed gratitude to the management of the sponsor, especially CEO Ravi Mangar and Marketing Manager Ewart Sampson for their continued support, describing the relationship as a “highly successful” one.
The club under the company’s support produced its only Test player Assad Fudadin, while Shemaine Campbelle plays for the West Indies female team. Others like Rajiv Ivan, Delbert Hicks, Dominique Rikhi, Clinton Pestano Loyydel Lewis, Shawn Pereira, Shailendra Shameer, Arif Chan, Askay Homraj, Phaffiana Millington, Daniel Lewis, Brandon Prashad and Erva Giddings have all represented Guyana at different levels.
The donation of the uniforms is in addition to the annual cricket sponsorship of $250,000 which aids in youth development.
The RHTY&SC will, over the next few weeks, be restructuring its first division team with special interest in the younger. The club will also for the first time be playing guest players from Demerara under a special arrangement with Alfred Mentore of the Demerara Cricket Club. These players include West Indies 20/20 star Christopher Barnwell and Trevon Griffith.
Meanwhile, Sampson expressed the company’s satisfaction on the way the club represents its brand. Sampson noted that he was pleased to be associated with the RHTY&SC and will continue to do so in future. He also wished the management of the club the best of the future.
