Regal Legends, Mike’s Wellman renew rivalry in Republic Cup on Sunday
The annual Republic Cup softball tournament organised by the Georgetown Softball Cricket League Incorporated (GSCL) will be held this Sunday (February 27) at the Togetherness Park, Liliendaal, Greater Georgetown with Regal Legends (Over-50s) battling longtime rivals Mike’s Wellman for top honours.
Over the years the two teams have been locked in heated battles with Regal holding the edge, but this time it will not be ‘a walk in the park.’
Mike’s Wellman have been showing some good form recently and will be the team to beat with the likes of Lloyd Ruplall, Lakeram ‘Mikey’ Singh and Wayne Jones returning good performances.
On the other hand, traditional powerhouse Regal Legends will depend on David Harper, Parsram ‘Pacer’ Persaud, Mahendra Hardyal, Rudolph ‘Gussy’ Baker, Eion ‘Rapper’ Abel and Laurie ‘Tony’ Singh to add another trophy to their collection.
The Regal Legends versus Mike’s Wellman clash will be the second game of a double-header with Regal Masters (Over-40s) taking on a Select XI from 10:00h in the day’s curtain-raiser. Regal Masters will include Chien Gittens, Mahendra ‘Bobby’ Parasnauth, Patrick Rooplall, Mohamed Ayume, Samuel Kingston, Ricky Roopnarine and Lakhram Roopnarine.
As is the norm over the years, this tournament will be used as useful preparation for local players heading to the annual Florida Cup mega softball tournament in the Sunshine State of the United States of America from March 31 to April 2 this year.
Meanwhile, tickets for the annual fundraising take away Bar-B-Que organised by the Regal cricket teams, to aid in their participation in the Florida Cup, will be on sale from any player at G$1,500 each.
