3, April 2017 - Urlings Cricket Club has today proudly announced OJ’s Bar and Restaurant as their official sponsor with a generous $5,000 granted towards the Urlings Cricket Club House Campaign.
OJ, Owner of OJ’s Bar and Restaurant said: “We hope one of the young players from Urlings CC gets called up for Antigua and Barbuda, that one of the new female players gets called up for the West Indies Team in the future. If OJ’s Bar and Restaurant can support Antigua’s athletes of the future we will be very happy.”
Trevor Erskine, Captain, Urlings CC said: “OJ has been a longtime supporter of Urlings CC generously giving funds for a scoreboard, practice net and kit. We are very proud to have OJ’s Bar and Restaurant as the official sponsor of Urlings CC and are all very grateful for his major contribution to the Club House.”
Urlings CC has raised over $15,000 for the Club House Campaign so far. This includes $10,000 in donations from the UK, with Somerset CC and Lansdowne CC, previous clubs of Sir Vivian Richards, both supporting. The Club House will include home and away changing rooms, toilet and shower, bar and meeting room, storage and a deck area.
Sir Andy Roberts said: “There's great local cricket talent in Urlings and surrounding villages. A club house will provide the much needed facilities, pride and focus to bring this talent through to the club and national level in Antigua and Barbuda."
Urlings CC Junior Programme
Urlings CC has now set up a Junior Cricket Programme. Training Sessions take place every Friday from 5-6.30pm, for children of all ages.
