The fifth annual Seenanan Chickery Memorial Cricket match was played last Sunday between Queens Village Cricket Club and Richmond Hill Sports Club at the Alley Pond Park before a decent crowd of well wishers and ardent cricket supporters who knew the late Mr. Chickery.

Before the game commenced, a moment of silence was observed to pay respects to Mr. Chickery and other cricket loving folks who died over the last year. The game itself was fun as usual. Richmond Hill won the toss and batted first in the 17 a side affair. They made 203 for 10 off the allotted 25 overs. G. Kundan (Son) top scored with an unbeaten 62 that contained five 6’s and four 4’s. He was well supported by Vicky 44 and Ramjit Singh’s 29. Bygee Sookram was Queens Villages’ most successful bowler with 3 for 31.

Queens Village knocked off the score in the last over. Naresh top scored with 38. Other significant scores came from Vick Rameswar 37 and Vish Persaud 21. Kumar Chickery bagged 5 for 21 which included a hat trick. He was well supported by Ramjit Singh and Krishna Chickery with two wickets apiece.

Following the game, officiated by Mr. Jairam Bissessar (President of the Umpire Softball Cricket Association) and Mr. Cecil Singh, the presentation was held.

The Chickery family would like to thank the players and supporters for sharing those precious six to seven hours with them last Sunday. A very special thank you goes out to the umpires; Mr. Jairam Bissessar and Mr. Cecil Singh.
