The Seventh Day Baptist (SDB) Organisation, through its St Mary Chapter, has partnered with St Mary Cricket Association to assist with the parish's Under-15 cricket team currently taking part in the Kingston Wharves competition.

The organisation made a donation to Wain Lynch, assistant treasurer of the St Mary Cricket Association (CA) and manager of the Under-15 team, on Sunday during a match between the St Mary Seventh Day Circuit and the SD United cricket team from Bridgeport, at Boscobel Oval in St Mary.

The St Mary circuit's assistance will go beyond the donation, as they have also pledged to “adopt” the Under-15 team and assist in its development as much as possible.

In making the initial donation on Sunday, Kevin Carter of the SDB noted that his organisation has been impressed by the performance of the St Mary Under-15 cricketers, after watching them play earlier in the day.

“The young cricketers in St Mary are very talented and seem to enjoy playing the game, and this is a good sign for the future of cricket in St Mary,” Carter observed.

Mr Carter wished the youngsters all the success in their future endeavours and promised to keep a close watch on their development.

In thanking the SDB, recently elected St Mary CA President Ian Spencer lauded the organisation for taking an interest in the development of young cricketers, whom he noted are the future stars of cricket.

“We have tremendous potential here and, with the help of groups such as the SBD, we are certain that we can chart a proper development programme to nurture the talent in the parish,” Spencer added.

The president also called on other companies and social and religious organisations to get on board with strengthening the growth and development of cricket in the parish.
