V-Net throws support behind Essequibo youth cricket quartet
V-Net Communications has continued its unwavering support for youth cricketers, and more so for those who hail from the county of Essequibo.
In its latest contribution to the game, the business has registered four players from the county to the Everest Cricket Club.
Under-19 cricketer Devon Ramratan, Under-17 player Gladewin Henry, along with Under-15 cricketers Varindra Pooran and Nazaam Mohamed are now members of Everest and the 25 Delph Street, Campbellville, Georgetown, entity which specialises in data and voice communication, will sponsor the needs of the quartet to play cricket in the city.
Henry and Ramratan have already reaped success for the Camp Road club, producing scores of 98* and 69 respectively on debut for the Under-19 side.
Pooran and Mohamed are members of the Essequibo Under-15 squad in the Guyana Cricket Board/Dave West Indian Imports Inter-county tournament.
According to Chief Executive Officer of V-Net, Safraz Sheriffudeen, the company wanted to continue its tradition of investing in young talents by providing a more structured platform for them to play the sport they love, and ideally, progress to the higher levels.
The biggest success story for the company is West Indies all-rounder Keemo Paul, who is now V-Net Brand Ambassador. The all-rounder benefited from a similar partnership with the company in his formative years.
Before one of the U-15 matches recently, Paul, who is now vice-captain for Guyana Harpy Eagles, offered some inspirational words of advice to the Essequibo cricket team.
V-Net also treated the entire Under-15 squad and management of the Essequibo team to dinner at Big B’s, located in MovieTowne, during their stint in the city.
