The Berbice Cricket Board has presented financial stipends to nine national U19 female cricketers through the Dr Puran Singh Incentive Scheme.


The Berbice Cricket Board (BCB), on June 24, handed over financial stipends worth $10K each to nine Under-19 players who gained selection to the national team at the St Francis Community Developers Centre.


They will be competing in the Cricket West Indies Girls Under-19 Regional Tournament slated for July 3-14 in Trinidad and Tobago.


"We at the Berbice Cricket Board are very proud of each one of you. Our decision to invest heavily into female cricket is one of our best ever and each one of you are proof that it was a wise one. Go out and make sure that you represent the legacy of Kanhai, Butcher and Kallicharran with pride, passion and dedication. You are following in the footsteps of Shemaine Campbelle, who without doubt is the best female cricketer Guyana has ever produced- do not disappoint her," BCB President Hilbert Foster said to the girls.


The cricketers who benefitted are Captain Ashmini Munisar, Trisha Hardat, Priya Mahadeo, Leah Kamalall, Jamie Campbell, Niveena Ramnauth, Crystal Durant, Darshanie Subrammie and Realeanne Grimmond.


These nine players will leave Guyana shortly to participate in the Cricket West Indies Under-19 female tournament in Trinidad and Tobago.


The $90K in stipends were handed out under the BCB/Dr Puran Singh Financial Incentive Scheme. Under this initiative, the Board provides $10K to every Berbice player who gains selection to the national team at the Under-15, Under-17 and Under-19 levels.


Foster also urged the players to follow the basics and to remember what they would have learned from their cricket coaches during the numerous coaching sessions organised by the BCB.


Over the recent months, cricketers in Berbice would have benefitted from training with Sir Andy Roberts, Sir Curtly Ambrose, Jimmy Adams, Dr Desmond Haynes, Roland Butcher, Courtney Walsh, Nolan Mckenzie, Clyde Butts, Reon King and Sheik Mohamed.


Captain of the team Ashmini Munisar expressed thanks to the BCB and Dr Singh for their support and she committed the players to making the ancient county very proud.
