Bruiser Thomas

Cecil Bruiser Thomas made his first class debut for Guyana in 1946, against Barbados at Bourda. He made his highest first class score (78) and only first class half century on debut. He played his last first class match in 1956, against Jamaica at Bourda, in which he had his best bowling figures (4-42) in first class cricket.

Bruiser Thomas became a newspaper and radio journalist in Guyana after retiring from first class cricket.

Clement Neblett

Clement Neblett, the third of five male siblings, was a tall all-rounder and an integral part of the Guyana Police team that won four straight Case Cup first division titles from 1971 to 1974.

Saranga Baichu

Saranga Baichu was a medium pacer with a big off-cutter and occasional leg-cutter. He had a very short run and bowled wicket to wicket.

Wilfred Edun

"Sonny", as he was known to everyone, attended Bourda Roman Catholic Primary School where he participated in soccer, boxing and cricket. From there he went to Modern High School, during which time he represented Bookers Sports Club in cricket. He later played for Everest Cricket Club for almost sixteen years, and was club captain for some time.

Randolph Latcha

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.

Richard Hector

Richard Hector started his first class career in sensational style when he quickly dismissed England batsmen Len Hutton (0) and Peter May (9), with just 21 runs on the scoreboard, on the first morning of the "colony" match. His first class career never really took off, however, and he played only two matches for British Guiana.
