The Enmore Community Centre Cricket Club (ECCCC) has benefitted from the benevolence of one of its members, who on Sunday last donated a mobile scoreboard with the aim of to keeping spectators up to date with scores at the venue.
At a simple presentation ceremony, managing director of Tiger Sports of Enmore Old Road, Sheik Mohamed, presented the piece of equipment to club captain Bheermaj Ramkellawan in the presence of several young members of the club.
Mohamed, the former national wicketkeeper/batsman, is a long-standing member of the club, and the left-hander said he saw the need for such an equipment since it will help to keep spectators abreast with scores of games being played at the Enmore Community Centre ground.
He expressed delight at being able to give back to the club, where he grew up harnessing his skills many years ago.
Responding on behalf of the club, Ramkellawan thanked Mohamed for his kind gesture, adding that the former national cricketer has always been supportive of Enmore cricket, moreso since the club was resuscitated in February this year.
The presentation was done immediately after the ECCCC won the GT&T 35-over cricket competition by beating Fairfield by 83 runs, and according to Ramkellawan, there is a high level of talent in the club at the moment.
The mobile scoreboard was used for the first time at last Sunday’s final, and it will be in use again this Sunday when the Enmore lads take on the visiting Ontario cricket team in a specially arranged match at the Enmore Community Centre ground.
