US-based Moore re-elected President of Tucber Park CC
Tucber Park Cricket Club (TPCC) held its elections on April 8 at the Berbice High School and long-serving cricket administrator and manager, Carl Moore, who now resides in the United States of America, will continue to serve as President of the Club.
National Coach Julian Moore will serve as first Vice-President, while Anthony D’Andrade was elected as second Vice-President. Tamesh Mohabir is the Secretary. Gary Millington is the Assistant Secretary, while West Indies female player Tremayne Smartt is the Treasurer. Orlando Tanner was elected as Assistant Treasurer and Brandon Corlette the Public Relations Officer.
In a Virtual call, the senior Moore said he is impressed with the work of the club. He hailed his son Julian and the other members of the club. “Julian, Anthony, Smartt and the Secretary, Tamesh have done a good job. They are carrying on the works that we started a few years ago to help the youngsters in New Amsterdam and surrounding areas,” Carl said.
Over the past years, Tucber Park has grown from strength to strength in producing solid players. West Indies senior player Romario Shepherd and Guyana pacer Nial Smith are the latest elite products from the New Amsterdam-based club. Fast bowler Jeremy Gordon, the former senior Guyana player, is also a product of the club. Gordon now plies his trade in Canada.
The Manager of the championship-winning Guyana team in the Stanford T20 tournament, Carl Moore said he is impressed and beyond proud of both Shepherd and Smith, who began their cricketing careers at the TPCC. Well-known as Mr. Moore, Carl took over the TPCC mantle in 1999.
He described Smith and Shepherd as committed and disciplined players. He is hoping that this duo will inspire the upcoming talents at TPCC.
In addition to Smartt, Candacy Atkins, who played for USA, is also another West Indies female product of TPCC. Eugene La Fleur is another proud product of TPCC; he was the captain the Guyana Under-19 team in 2008. The likes of former senior Berbice players Devon Clements and Maxie De Jonge, along with D’Andrade, also played for UWI Vice Chancellor vs Zimbabwe back in 2010, are products from the TPCC.
The TPCC has produced more than 40 national youth players in recent years. The current executive body will run the TPCC for the next two years.
