Digicel donates to young cricketers

Always willing to contribute to the community, Digicel recently made sure that the Smashers Junior Cricket team, with players under the age of 15, are appropriately attired for their first outing.{{more}}

Marketing Manager at Digicel, Juno DeRoche, last week Friday handed over 20 T-Shirts and 20 caps to the Smashers Academy. The jerseys and caps enabled the team to take part in the Greggs Cricket Competition which began on July 26th.

Hassan Williams, a member of the management committee of the Smashers Academy and captain of the Academy’s senior cricket team, said the shirts and caps made the junior team’s participation possible, “because one of the rules of the competition is uniformity”.

“Smashers Academy is currently fostering young talent for the big team; we need young players”, Williams explained.

The Smashers Academy is based in Lauders.

“I admire Digicel because they are the pioneers that opened up the telecommunications market here; I also admire their efforts to give back to the society” Williams said.

The juniors won their first game but lost their second.
