Chandrabali’s Construction invests $385,000 into Albion’s Second-Division team
Chandrabali’s Construction of the United States of America has ploughed G$385,000 into the Albion Community Centre Cricket Club (ACCCC), as sponsorship of the Club’s Second-Division team for the 2022 Season, a release from the club indicated.
At a simple launching ceremony held recently at the Albion Community Centre’s Main Hall, Deva Chandrabali, the proprietor of Chandrabali’s Construction, located in New York, USA, disclosed to the audience via a live social media appearance that he was extremely happy to be associated with Albion’s cricket.
“I am from Nigg, I spent a lot of time at the Albion Community Centre in my childhood days and I am delighted to invest in this outstanding Club. It is always a pleasure for me to give back to my people” said Chandraballi.
President of the ACCCC Vemen Walter, thanked Chandraballi for the gesture and assured him that his sponsorship of the Club’s Second Division Team will assist tremendously not only towards the development of Albion’s cricket but also cricket in Berbice, Guyana and by extension the West Indies.
“This sponsorship will not only assist the ACCCC but will also contribute towards the development of games in Berbice, Guyana and the West Indies generally. As we all know, Albion is a major player in Berbice, Guyana and West Indies cricket, having been known to produce top-quality cricketers over the years.
Cricket is a very expensive game and I must thank Mr Chandrabali for this sponsorship.”
Walter also took the opportunity to thank Fabian Naiken, who was very instrumental in the development of Albion’s cricket in the early 1990s, before migrating to Canada, for the role he played in securing the sponsorship.
The Albion Second-Division team for the 2022 season will be known as the “Albion Chandrabali’s Construction Second-Division team.”
Among those also present for the launching were Naiken via social media, along with former Guyana and West Indies opening batsman Sewnarine Chattergoon, currently the Head Coach of Albion, Jonathan Foo and several other members of the club’s First and Second-Division teams.
With the exception of the Albion First Division Team, which is partly sponsored, all of the club’s other teams are now fully sponsored.
The club’s Under 19 Team is sponsored by K.P. Jagdeo General Contracting while Orvin Mangru’s Contracting Services is the Under 17 Team’s sponsor.
Permaul’s Trading & Distribution (Under 15), Harichand’s Business Establishment (Under 13) and Cell Towers Builders of the USA (Under 21).
