The Shelburne Cricket Club hosted its first official game on Saturday, August 29. Many local public officials attended, in addition to members of the media and leaders in Canadian Cricket. Josh MacEwen recaps the event.
The Shelburne Gladiators played against the Mississauga Ramblers at KTH Park, which is located at 197 Homestead Drive in Shelburne. Admission was free and open to the public. Club co-founders Anand Jagdeo, Ahsen Siddiqui, and Rick Ramchand ensured the event went smoothly and was enjoyed by all.
The Town of Shelburne’s Mayor Wade Mills, Deputy Mayor Steve Anderson, Councillor Lindsay Wegener all attended and addressed the audience and teams before the game. Dufferin-Caledon Member of Provincial Parliament Sylvia Jones, Shelburne Police Constable Jennifer Roach, and host of Shelburne’s Multicultural Day Althea Casamento attended too.
Leadership from several prominent Canadian Cricket organizations also attended. This includes Vice President for the Mississauga Ramblers Roy Supaul, President of the BEDCL and Cricket Ontario Vice President Praimp Persaud, and Director at Large for Cricket Canada Ranjit Chaudhri. It was an impressive slate of guests who expressed confidence and support for the future of cricket in Dufferin. They also made it known how important a proper cricket pitch is to the growth of the sport.
The club’s youth members were able to participate in the game, which helps with exposure and building commitment for those new to the sport. It is important that the community support these kids who are pioneering this quickly-growing sport in our community. This support was made clear on Saturday. If cricket gets into local schools, which sounds like a possibility, then the sky is the limit when it comes to the sport’s potential in our community.
With Anand, Ahsen, and Rick leading the club, the sport of cricket has a bright future in Dufferin and people will be eager to see what comes next.
For those interested, the Shelburne Cricket Club is open for new members, ages ten and up, all genders, and it is only $20 to join. The club meets on Saturdays between 3 pm and 7 pm at KTH Park. Details can be found through their Facebook page.
