ROBIN PARRIS is a man who can honestly say he loves his job.

It is something he cannot picture himself not doing.

Parris has held the post of territorial development officer with the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for the past six years, and has seen many things come to fruition through the Kiddy Cricket and Grassroots programmes.

“My background is in youth work, so that is where my expertise comes in with Kiddy Cricket and Grassroots cricket. I also come into play with all the West Indies teams at times, juniors and seniors, in terms of their preparation and pre-tour camps, where I would go in and assist them with their batting and bowling drills or whatever they need help with,” he said.
