Last hurrah


Share post:

While Combermere were revelling in their capture of yet another cricket title, sacked Alexandra physical education teacher Roger Broomes was celebrating his own success.
Despite watching Alexandra falter against Combermere for the second successive year in the final of the Barbados Cricket Association Republic Bank Rightstart Everton Weekes Under-13 Cricket Competition at Kensington Oval on Saturday, Broomes was savouring the moment.
The former physical education teacher at the Alexandra School was officially terminated on January 1, following a recommendation from the Commission of Inquiry into the Alexandra School, which suggested that he should no longer work there.
Broomes, who taught at the school for nine years, wasn’t even supposed to be at Kensington Oval in a coaching capacity, but he still went along.
