Wakenaam Had Fruitful 2012
The Wakenaam Cricket Committee (WCC), for the first time in the history of cricket organized by the Essequibo Board, managed to win a senior competition. The island was victorious in the ECB 40-overs tournament in 2012.
The WCC managed to run off two Twenty20 tournaments, which were sponsored by Safraz Sherifudeen (Mac) and Feroze Amin, with Sans Souci Jaguars winning the former and Sans Souci SC winning the latter. The other tournaments which were planned for 2012 had to be postponed due to the inclement weather.
Several players from the island were selected to the various ECB inter-county teams and some went on to represent Guyana. Kemo Paul was the captain of the Under-15 team, while Ricardo Adams recorded the first century by an Essequibian at the regional Under-19 level. Additionally Wayne Osborne and Adams were selected to represent the county in the GCB Twenty20 competition which was not played due to rain.
The Committee is expressing many thanks to its sponsors, Safraz Sherifudeen and Feroze Amin. Secretary of the WCC Nazeer Mohamed, in a brief remark, said the Committee is looking to organize more competitions in 2013.
