Age issue with Under-15 cricket team member resolved


Share post:

A DISCREPANCY related to the age of one of the selected players for the national Under-15 cricket team has been spotted, avoiding what could have resulted in massive embarrassment for host country Barbados.

Investigations by WEEKENDSPORT reveal that Kobe Hoyte of the Grantley Adams Memorial School has been withdrawn from the 14-member squad originally selected for the 50-over One-Day tournament, which runs from July 26 to August 4.

He has been replaced by fellow all-rounder Jakeem Forde of Christ Church Foundation.

It is understood that whereas Hoyte’s birth certificate shows that he was born in 2001 but his national identification card has his birth year listed as 2002. (EZS)
