SCA Plans Memorial Day Outdoor Presentation.

IN 2021, the Covid-19 pandemic
forced the Scarborough Cricket
Association (SCA) to stage its 40th
annual presentation via Zoom.
Dubbed the “Virtual Recognition Night,”
teams and players were rewarded for
their outstanding performances during
a truncated 2020 season. While the
presentation will not return to the
banquet hall style as was customary
over the years, it will take place at the
Ashtonbee ground on the afternoon
of July 22 and is still expected to be a
memorable occasion.
With a distinct improvement in Covid-19
restrictions, the SCA has given the
assurance that the 2022 presentation will
return to a banquet hall most likely in
Saturday, August 20 has also been
designated Memorial Day when the SCA
will pay tributes to its late stalwarts,
among them Richard Ramlall, a longserving
executive member who passed
away in December 2020 and Chief
Financial Officer (CFO) Vish Jadunauth,
who died in February.
The Memorial Day will feature matches at
the Ashtonbee ground and will culminate
with a presentation ceremony.
The SCA development programme
continues apace at the Ashtonbee ground
on Tuesdays under the tutelage of Keith
Deonarine, who’s involvement with
Canadian cricket has been outstanding.
He represented Canada at the Under-19
and Under-23 levels and was the 1992
recipient of the prestigious award as
the country’s most outstanding Junior
Weekly summer camps are also planned
for Scarborough from July 18-22, Whitby
July 25-29, Ajax – August 8-12 and
Pickering August 15-19.
Meanwhile, the race for championship
honours in the Elite Division has
seen Victoria Park Cricket Club
(VPCC) take an early lead with
40 points from five matches, the
same as Ajax Cricket Club A but
with a superior net run rate.
Newcomers Naseeb Cricket
Club occupy the third spot on
30 points also from five games
while defending champions
Ambassadors Sports Club A, with
10 points from four matches, are
in the seventh position just above
Starz Cricket Club who are yet to
register a win after four matches.
Several outstanding performances have
been recorded in the division but one that
stood out was an incredible unbeaten
knock of 186 from Island Warriors’
Ricavo Williams who belted eight fours
and 21 sixes versus Bilal Cricket Club at
the Ashtonbee Number One ground on
Sunday, June 19. Williams’ innings saw
Island Warriors reaching 382 for five in
their allotted 50 overs.
Bilal made a spirited reply but fell
short by 55 runs, being dismissed for
327 in 38 overs. Asad Siyyid was left
undefeated on 112 which contained
11 fours and five sixes off 65 balls.
Earlier the same day, Williams took
five catches behind the stump in a
T20 fixture, also against Bilal which
also saw his team winning by seven
