The only thing that could make the perfect summer beach day even better for any young cricketer from the Boys Town Sports Club would be to meet and play the good game with their favourite pros. And that’s exactly what they did on Monday, August 28 at Fort Clarence Beach in St. Catherine—in between matches for the Hero CPL 2017 Tournament, Digicel hosted members of the Jamaica Tallawahs team members and fifteen youngsters from the Boys Town Cricket Team for a mid-morning training session and friendly game in the sand, much to the delight of the boys and their coaches. “These boys practically idolise the Jamaica Tallawahs,” said Ricardo McGeachy, head coach for the Boys Town Cricket team. He continued, “So getting the chance to meet them, train with them and listen to them talk one-on-one about what it’s like playing professional cricket will go a far way in motivating them and inspiring them to pursue worthwhile careers in the sport. Some of them want to bat like Trevon Griffith or bowl like Odean Smith so being able to see them in person and even spend a little time with them will be something they’ll never forget. So we’re really thankful to Digicel and the Jamaica Tallawahs for making this happen for the boys.” Following an intense training session which covered batting and bowling techniques, game strategy and sportsmanship, the group of fifteen boys quickly then squared off in a friendly match against the Tallawahs players, which included bowlers Odean Smith and Oshane Thomas, as well as batsmen, Kennar Lewis and Trevon Griffith. Seventeen year old Warick Watson shared, “Today was amazing! I learnt a lot, especially from Trevon Griffiths and Odean Smith, who showed me a new way to bowl. Doing this just helps to confirm that I really want to pursue my dream of becoming a physiotherapist for the West Indies cricket team. I love the sport of cricket and really love Science and it would be a combination of my two favourite things.”
