Nevis Masters trounce English visitors
Harwood Williams, the former St. Kitts national cricketer explained in an interview that the visiting English team currently in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, is a combination of players from the Dullington Cricket Club of York and the Caribbean Cricket Club of Leeds.
He noted that the club normally visits the Federation every two years but has returned this around in the third year due to the astronomical costs of airfares. The squad totals 28 persons.
The team engaged a Nevis Masters’ team on the Thursday evening in a T-20 affair.
One of the big shockers for the evening was to see birthday boy, Teddy BLACKMAN Liburd, suited up for the English team, alongside Kittitian Masters’ players, Dango Farrell and Curtis Crooke.

A surprise brief ceremony was held after the match, when the English team produced a huge cake and sang the happy birthday song for one of their team mates known as GODFATHER and for Teddy BLACKMAN Liburd. BALCKMAN in his response thanked the visitors for their kind gesture and explained that he was just one year old. ‘I have already reached the 50 mark, so I have started to count from one again,’ he said.
