Mark Montfort who migrated to Canada in 2010 played his club cricket in Guyana alongside the former West Indies off-spinner Clyde Butts. Monfort, who now plays Canadian League cricket with the Brampton Masters, grew up bowling off-spin and learnt a lot from Butts who was a mentor.

Several years ago, he converted to bowling medium pace on the advice of then Canadian Coach Henry Osinde.Though the focus has been on his bowling, Montfort still takes pride in his batting as a left-handed middle order batsman. Occupying the crease and making major scores have always been his focus.
