CARLTON CLUB in Black Rock has at least four good reasons to make successful bids to clinch some of the silverware in this year’s top-level Barbados Cricket Association’s (BCA) competitions. On Tuesday night, Carlton unveiled a plan that involves awarding scholarships to four of the brightest young talents, as well as monetary and other incentives for the Black Rock team to rediscover some of their glory days. In a ceremony held at The Legends Headquarters, Fontabelle, St Michael, general manager of Lee’s Bistro and Bar, Mark Gaskin, indicated that Barbados Under-19 players Shayne Moseley and Jonathan Drakes, along with Rashawn Trotman and Lee Germon Gaskin, had been selected from the G Spot Tigers team for full scholarships at Carlton. In addition, Gaskin said that during the Twenty20 competition, Lee’s Bistro would give a Man Of The Match prize of $200 for every game. A prize of $250 would be given for every 50-over match. The top batsman and the bowler at the end of the Elite season would pocket $500 each, while winning the Elite crown would earn the team, and not the club, $5 000. Stressing the drive towards professionalism, Gaskin stated that Carlton’s players would have no problem being early for the start of the knockouts, which bowl off at 9:30 a.m. daily since he would be providing a full buffet breakfast every morning that such matches are being played. West Indies legend Desmond Haynes, along with Carlton coach Shirley Clarke and sponsor Philip Chudley, presented full cricket gear to the four and Haynes also led the four in reciting the Carlton motto. The club will be starting net sessions for the upcoming season on Tuesday. (KB)
