John and Guyanese Chetram Singh were recognised for their long, selfless and dedicated service to West Indies cricket.

The recognition ceremony was a prelude to the West Indies Cricket Board Annual General Meeting.

Apart from the plaques and other memorabilia, a celebration dinner was held in their honour, with the two responding to the citations read.

Reflecting on the occasion, John told SEARCHLIGHT last Tuesday: “it was a great feeling and something I deeply appreciate for the years which I have served cricket in the region”.

“This is the ultimate award for me from the WICB,” John said.

John has served the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association from 1969 to 2006, as well as the Windward Islands Cricket Board of Control, from 1978 to the present. John, apart from holding the position of Chief Executive Officer of the Windwards Board, is the Immediate Past President.

John held the post of President of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association from 1988 to 2005 and was the Windwards Board President from 1991 to 2007.

At the wider West Indies level, John served on the regional Board from 1983 to 2007.

He also was the Manager of the West Indies Under-15 team to the World Cup in England in 2000.(RT)
