    These are some of the most talented youngsters in the island. Unfortunately the only way they could be ready to compete with other teams is to be overseas competing against quality teams. This horrible cricket I see on weekends couldn’t possibly prepare them for anything. And give me a break about top class training techniques. This stands for nothing in Bermuda. I know we have about two or three overseas, but that is not enough.

  2. Well done BF&M! Thank you for supporting our young people!
