It was the Easter weekend and on Sunday 16th April, the inaugural Cricket Fes, organized by Area representative, the Hon. Alexis Jeffers, was held at the newly renovated and lit, VOJN grounds.
After several preliminary matches of 10 overs per team, the grand finals was played between the MUA team and the Left overs team, which was interestingly, captained by Virgil Browne who has been nominated to oppose Hon. Jeffers in the next elections.
The highlight of the afternoon, was for the crowd to witness the battle between Jeffers and Browne.
Jeffers came out bat in hand, on 15 but Browne’s team won the eventual main prizes as they won in the finals.
The atmosphere was hyped, complete with music and dancing girls and from all reports, everyone who attended, thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
