The Tokio Millennium Re 8 & Under League concluded on Saturday [June 20] with all the teams playing their last game followed by a prize presentation to recognise all the participants in the league.
President of the Bermuda Cricket Board Lloyd Fray stated, “This year I was extremely pleased to note that we had a record number of 14 teams participating in the 8&Under Tokio Millennium Re League including three all-girls teams and several girls playing in club and school teams.”
Mr. Fray explained, “The BCB Youth Leagues are designed to accommodate a mix of teams from both local clubs and schools. The main purpose of our leagues is to teach the skills of cricket while enriching the lives of all of Bermuda’s children. The leagues provide an opportunity to interact with each other in a safe and fun environment that embraces equality, team spirit and togetherness.”
“I would like to take this time to thank the clubs, volunteer coaches, parents and of course long-time supporters of the 8&Under program, Tokio Millennium Re. Tokio Millennium Re Ltd. is committed to bettering the lives of children in Bermuda through donations to youth and family services agencies as well as through supporting youth sports.”
