Former Guyana cricketer Gonsalves to sponsor Albion U-21 team
Former Guyana batsman Andrew Gonsalves will be sponsoring the Albion Community Centre Cricket Club’s Under-21 team for the 2021 season.
Gonsalves, also a former Albion cricketer, known for his explosive batting, is the Owner/Manager of the Cell Towers Builders Inc. in the United States, where he now resides.
On Wednesday, he contacted the President of the Albion Community Centre Cricket Club (ACCCC), Vemen Walter, expressing an interest to assist the Club. It was then agreed that he will provide sponsorship for the Club’s Under-21 team.
“Gonsalves providing assistance to the ACCCC is nothing new since over the years he had made several financial contributions,” the Club said in a statement.
In his discussion with the Club’s President, he expressed his delight with the continued excellent work of the Club and disclosed that giving back to his Club will always be a pleasure for him.
The sponsorship will officially be launched shortly. This sponsorship is one of many that the Club has attracted recently.
A few weeks ago, sponsorships for the Club’s Team, which will participate in the upcoming Speaker’s T20 National Club Cricket Tournament, along with its Under-13, 15, 17 and 19 Teams were launched.
Permaul’s Trading and Distribution and K.P. Jagdeo General Contracting are the sponsors of the Club’s Team for the Speaker’s T20 National Club Cricket Tournament.
The Club’s Under-19 Team is also sponsored by K.P. Jagdeo General Contracting with Orvin Mangru’s Contracting Services being the Under-15 Team’s sponsor, Permaul’s Trading and Distribution the Under-15 sponsor and the Under-13 being taken care of by Harichand’s Business Establishment.
The Club’s First Division Team is also partly sponsored; however, it is very likely that this team will have a full sponsor within a few weeks. Meanwhile, the Club would like to thank Gonsalves for his continued support.
