The third Test of the West Indies vs England 2015 series at Kensington Oval, from tomorrow, May 1, until May 5, will have some lucky spectators throughout the five-day match.
Barbados TODAY, in conjunction with the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), has launched a promotion to award some lucky individuals with tickets, to see the West Indies team playing on Barbadian soil.
Ticket winners include this year’s Pine Hill National Primary Schools’ Athletics Champions West Terrace Primary and Charles F. Broome, and Barbados Secondary School Athletics Champions Lester Vaughan and Springer Memorial.
West Terrace Primary’s physical education teacher Roderick Harmon, along with principal Beverley Burrowes and three members of the cricket team, who were the Herman Griffith Cricket Tournament winners, proudly accepted the tickets at the school’s grounds.
At Charles F. Broome, members of the cricket team were in a frenzy, performing a chant in support of the West Indies team throughout the presentation.
Physical education teacher Alphonza King accepted the tickets on their behalf, principal Louis Griffith saying afterwards that it was a nice treat for the dedicated young lads.
At The Lester Vaughan School, principal Michael Boyce accepted the Test tickets on behalf of the institution’s cricket team.
Pauline Benjamin, principal of the Springer Memorial School, thanked Barbados TODAY and the WICB for the “kind gesture in terms of selecting the school in this initiative”.
Barbados TODAY has also included its faithful Facebook and other Barbadian readers, as well as other Barbados TODAY special affiliates in this week-long promotion. These deeply grateful and excited winners eagerly collected their tickets for the final Test.
These winners include Astrid Parris, Kirt Jordan, Trimaine Walker, Joey Watts, Fernando Nurse, Nicholas Yarde, Tonya Deane (winner of Barbados TODAY’S Scribe And Drive Sweepstakes 2014) and Xavier Bertrand and family.
