Morton axed from programme
PORT OF SPAIN – Trinidad and Tobago batsman Runako Morton has been expelled from the country’s Elite Athletes Assistance Programme, after he appeared in court Monday on drug related charges.
The 32-year-old Morton, along with Leeward Islands cricketer, Tonito Willet, were arrested by police over the weekend for possession of a quantity of marijuana.
However, Sports Minister Anil Roberts said the decision to remove Morton from the 33 cricketers on the EAAP list was not because of the charges but the fact that he broke team curfew. (CMC)
