Trophy Stall commits to Republic Cup 2020
The annual Republic Cup, which is first major tournament on the 2020 calendar of events for the Georgetown Softball Cricket League Incorporated, is set for Sunday (February 16) at the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) with four top Masters teams battling for supremacy.
Newcomers East Coast Demerara Masters will have their work cut out as they look to get their hands on the Trophy Stall sponsored first prize ahead of seasoned contenders Mike’s Wellman Masters, Fishermen Masters and defending champions Regal Masters.
The first ball is at 10:00h on the small outfield with semi-final action, followed by the final at 14:00h.
Defending champions, Regal Masters will be hard-pressed to retain their title since their recent dip in form have seen Wellman’s Masters rising to the top in domestic competitions while Fishermen Masters will look to create another upset in a major tournament.
In addition to the championship trophy there are also trophies for the runner-up, Player-of-the-Match in the final, best batsman of the tournament and best bowler, all compliments of Trophy Stall.
There will be live entertainment from the Caribbean Hot Shots Band and live commentary from international commentators Inderjeet Persaud and John Ramsingh.
The organisers said teams competing in the upcoming Orlando Cup will be using the Republic Cup as adequate preparation.
