Roger Harper returns unopposed as DCC President
Former West Indies cricketer and coach, Roger Andrew Harper, has been re-elected to serve a third consecutive term at his boyhood club, Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) in Queenstown.
The 60-year-old was elected unopposed and will serve for the next two years in the top post after the club held its Annual General Meeting and Elections on March 29.
Attorney-at-Law Adrian Thompson served as the Returning Officer.
The majority of the other Executive members remained the same: Lawrence Smith (First Vice-President), Patrick Harding (Second Vice-President), Colin Alfred (Secretary), Akeem Greene (Assistant Secretary/Treasurer), Dennis Squires (Club Captain) and Adam Harris (Public Relations Officer).
Reginald Brotherson, who previously served as one of the five Committee Members, has been elected to the position of Treasurer and Jamal Hinckson has replaced Lyndon Lyght as Indoor Captain.
Charwayne Walker, Brandon Jaikaran, Troy Halley, Mark Harper and Orlando Giddings are the new Committee Members.
President Harper thanked the members for their continued support and highlighted that the new Executive will continue to make cricket a priority and develop a winning culture.
The club aims to form more partnerships with corporate Guyana by offering their spaces for branding and other marketing avenues, given its strategic location.
Furthermore, Harper commended International SOS for their continued investment in the club, especially in the youth programmes and assisting in infrastructural upgrades.
With the appointment of the energetic Darien Best as a coach, the club hopes to continue producing national players who can progress to the highest level.
Several young players under Best watch have already broken into Association, County and National teams this year.
