Mia’s advice to cricketers
MIA MOTTLEY was batting on a different pitch on Sunday when she gave a brief address at the Premix and Precast Yorkshire Sports Club’s 2013 awards ceremony at the Harold Nurse Resource Centre in Hothersal Turning.
Mottley, who is the parliamentary representative for the St Michael North East constituency, where the club is located, urged the young cricketers to maintain the legacy of the club, which is now its 64th year.
Yorkshire finished second in last year’s Barbados Cricket Association’s (BCA) Division One competition, behind winners CounterPoint Wanderers, narrowly missing out on promotion to the Elite Division.
The feature address was given by principal of the Parkinson School, Jeff Broomes, who is also a former BCA board member. Club president Louis Linton delivered the welcome address.
He said he didn’t believe there were enough “quality cricketers” in Barbados to maintain all the clubs and called for the merging of neighbouring clubs.
