Under 19 Inter-parish Cricket Tournament begins

For the 3rd consecutive year, Republic Bank has demonstrated its commitment to the Grenada Cricket Association (GCA) by contributing $13,000 to ensure the GCA/Republic Bank RightStart Under 19 Inter-parish Cricket Tournament is successful.

The Bank’s contribution covers the cost of trophies, transportation and refreshment for the teams. The tournament runs from 18 to 26 April 2017.

GCA Secretary, Norman Gilbert, plans to have the finals broadcast live on GIS TV. He also cited the importance of the tournament from which players are identified to represent Grenada at external competitions, as well as transition to the senior National Team.

Republic Bank’s Management Associate Aesia Worme, indicated that the “… tournament is strategically aligned with our RightStart Savings Account product, which is specially designed for young persons from birth up to the age of 19. The joy that we feel when we see our youth savers grow their savings each year is mirrored by the pride and joy of seeing young cricketers progress their talent from the school ground, to represent their parish, their country and, like Emmanuel Stewart and Ryan John, to represent the Windward Islands and the West Indies.”
