Randolph Latcha started playing for the famous Port Mourant Cricket Club, in Berbice, before becoming a teenager. He recalled being spotted while playing a game in the nearby village of Hampshire. He was selected for the Berbice Under-19 team while still thirteen, in rather fortunate circumstances.

Randolph toured Trinidad with the Port Mourant team in 1986, and was a member of the club team that won the Bristol Cup (for the nationwide first division limited overs knockout competition) for three consecutive years. He also represented Albion for several years, and Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club from 1992.

In 1988 Randolph was selected to tour Barbados with the Guyana Under-19 team, but hours before the team departed he was forced to pull out due to illness and his place was taken by fellow Berbician Devendra Deola. He represented Berbice at the Under-19 level for 5 years as well as the senior Berbice team from 1989-1998. He was Berbice senior inter-county captain in 1995.

In 1996 he played in the national trials to represent Guyana in the Red Stripe Bowl. Though included in the 24-man squad he did not make the final team.

Randolph Latcha has been a member of the Development Committee in the Guyana Cricket Board and a Junior Selector in Berbice.
