Cricket : JLPS Secures First Win

History was created on Wednesday 28th June, as the first official cricket match to be played at the renovated Zion cricket grounds, was played.

Man of the match-Nyanjah Liburd

As part of the Runako Morton/TDC Primary Schools Cricket tournament, the Joycelyn Liburd Primary School engaged the ST. Thomas’ Primary School, at the Zion, SEA BREEZE PARK.

The grounds and pitch were in picture-perfect condition, thanks to Dio Hendrickson and his team from the Easterns Cricket Club.

There was even a mound in place, complete with vociferous spectators, under umbrellas.

St. Thomas’ Primary won the toss and elected to bat first.

They got to a competitive 56 for 5 in their allotted 10 overs, led by Bolus and Honders- Maynard.

In response, JLPS was led by an unbeaten knock from Skipper Nyanjah Liburd and a helpful addition of 18 extras, to overhaul the target in 8.4 overs.
