Kascon Engineering Services to provide monthly stipend to young talent Adrian Hetmyer
Multi-purpose engineering company, Kascon Engineering Services has thrown its full support to national youth batsman Adrian Hetmyer for the year 2024.
Businessman and owner of Kascon Engineering, Rafeek Kassim has recognised the ultra-talented young Hetmyer, and decided to motivate the lad, who will receive a monthly stipend for the entire year.
The young Hetmyer also received top quality cricket equipment, compliments of Kascon, at a presentation ceremony held at the weekend at the company’s office, at Number Two Village, East Canje, Berbice.
At a tender age of 14, Adrian has already scored nine centuries, including three double-centuries.
Cricket runs deep in his veins; he is the son former national youth batsman Seon Hetmyer, and nephew of Guyana and West Indies batsman Shimron Hetmyer.
“We at Kascon Engineering have one saying, ‘Test cricket was made for the Gods, average men play ODI and T20 cricket,” Kassim said.
“With three double-centuries at the age of 14, with an uncle who played at the highest level, with a father whose name is synonymous with a complete cricketer, and probably the best all-rounder in the Canje district, Mr. Adrian Hetmyer, we at Kascon Engineering are proud to be part of your life for the next 12 months. We are more than grateful to have you part of our family.”
“We do hope in whatever way we can make your life better, just know we are always here for you.”
Young Hetmyer expressed his gratitude to Kassim and his company for the support. He noted that this sponsorship will benefit him significantly in his career.
Already a national Under-15 player, Adrian is aiming to go one step higher in 2024 at the regional level.
Noting that he had a bad regional season in 2023, the young player is aiming to improve in the coming season.
President of the Berbice Cricket Board Dr. Cecil Beharry was also present, and he spoke highly of young Hetmyer.
Additionally, Coach of the Rose Hall Canje Community Centre Cricket Club, Ameer Rahaman was in high praise for Kascon, for recognising Adrian’s talent.
A right-handed batsman, Adrian was recently called up to the Guyana Harpy Eagles senior trials, while in Berbice, he has featured in senior and junior club cricket, where he has shown he is a cut above the rest.
Additionally, Kassim donated cricket balls to the Rose Hall Canje Community Centre Cricket Club, as he believes that club has shown significant growth in producing quality cricketers.
Kascon Engineering is a company in Guyana which specialises in the construction of roads, buildings, and sea defenses.
Kassim is no stranger to cricket, as he played the game competitively and has served in administrative roles.
He was once at the helm of the Young Warriors Cricket Club.
