Coach: Hard work, training pay off


Share post:

Hard work, extra coaching at the Franklyn Stephenson Academy and a change in the batting line-up, paid dividends for first-time Guardian Group Herman Griffith Primary School cricket champions, West Terrace.

The reigning National Primary Schools Athletic Championship (NAPSAC) boys kings, romped to a lop-sided 74-run victory over two-time champs, Charles F. Broome in the final at the Empire Club, Bank Hall, yesterday.

“I feel elated. As I said the boys have put in a lot of hard work. This is a tribute to the boys. They are some very talented cricketers and I feel they and the school deserve this win this year,” physical education teacher, Roderick Harmon told WEEKEND SPORT.

Harmon lauded Stephenson, the former Barbados fast-bowling all-rounder and English country professional for assisting the West Terrace cricketers.
