Stephen Bamfield was Milton Pydanna's main competitor for the wicketkeeper position in the Guyana team in the 1970s and 1980s. Pydanna was considered a better keeper, but Bamfield was a somewhat better batsman. In the end Bamfield could not successfully displace Pydanna.

Carlton Clive Reece

Carlton Reece was the main rival to Clifford McWatt for the wicketkeeper job for Guyana after World War II.

The fact that both men often played together on the same team for Guyana suggests that they were highly valued players and that the competition must have been very keen when one replaced the other.
