Primary schools shift North Stars

President of the Barbados Cricket Association, Conde Riley, may not have given up on the North Stars Cricket Ground in St Lucy, but officials of the Guardian Group Herman Griffith Primary School’s Cricket Competition have.

This was revealed by competition coordinator Sherwin Campbell at Tuesday’s launch of the 38th annual tournament at the Guardian Group headquarters.

“This year, there will be no matches at North Stars due to a request from school officials. No one is comfortable playing at North Stars at this particular time. In the distant future, we will have games there,” said Campbell, the former Barbados and West Indies opening batsman.

“Parents don’t want to take their children to a ground that isn’t safe. They want to feel comfortable with them being there. It is important at this level. At the senior level, it might be different because obviously they are adults, but at the junior level, you don’t want to take that sort of risk,” he said. (RG)
