Young Warriors congratulate Hetmyer on selection to Guyana team

Guyana Chronicle article.

Georgetown, Guyana - The president and members of the Young Warriors Cricket Club (YWCC) of Cumberland Village, East Canje Berbice take this opportunity to congratulate 17-year-old Shimron Hetmyer on his selectio to the National Senior Cricket team.

He is the fourth player from this relatively new cricket club to make that achievement following Damodar Dasrath (former Guyana captain), Gajanand Singh and Richard Ramdeen.

Shimron only recently represented the West Indies Under-19 Team in the Youth World Cup in Dubai and performed creditably, while his brother Seon is a former Guyana youth batsman and scored a century at that level.

Speaking on behalf of the club, Anil Beharry, Secretary/Treasurer said it is another proud moment for the club, adding that from the tender age of seven, Shimron was earmarked for greatness.

Although the three previous cricketers didn’t make it to the West Indies senior team, the club is confident that Shimron will, Beharry expressed confidently, as the club continues to produce young cricketers and is calling on youths from the area to join the club.

Beharry expressed the hope that Shimron’s achievement will inspire others to take up the game of cricket seriously. He thanked the Berbice Cricket Board for its emphasis on youth cricket and was grateful to all the sponsors for making many more like Shimron possible.

Once again, the executives and members of the Young Warriors Cricket Club expressed best wishes to Shimron and advised him to keep his feet grounded.
