Cleveland County Bans Jason Anderson For Life

September 17, 2015

Following the altercation at the Champion of Champions cricket match, Cleveland County Cricket Club announced that Jason Anderson is banned from representing the club in all sporting activities for life.

Cleveland President Carlton Smith Jr. said, “Cleveland County Cricket Club [CCCC] would like to announce that as a result of the incident at the recent Champions of Champions final, Mr. Jason Anderson is hereby banned from representing the club in all sporting activities for life.

“The executive and members of CCCC do not condone the behaviour of Mr. Anderson. We view these matters seriously and as a community club this is not the type of behaviour that we expect from members of the club, nor the example that we would like to set for our junior players.

“The Club would like to thank Mr. Anderson for his contributions to the success the club has experienced over the last few years as he has been an integral part of that success. We urge Mr. Anderson to seek assistance for his anger issues and the club is willing to help him with these efforts, if he is willing.

“We would like to apologize to the general public for the scenes witnessed during the Champions of Champions final, as this is not the image that Cleveland County Cricket Club wish to portray.”

    Great way to set the tone for the future! Moving forward, this type of ban will be on the back of the minds of all players, not just in cricket.

    • ReaLLyBettty says:

      Cleveland County has send a strong message that they will not tolerate such behaviours. Postive step forward Cleveland.

      I look foward to all Workmen clubs working towards putting a comprehensive program in place to address the concerns of our young men.

      Moving forward I wish Cleveland best of luck. This is a very strong message to our young people and players.

      Calling all men in the community to be mentors to our young people and give back to our communities.

    BERMUDA cricket is no longer a gentleman’s game.

  3. Fisherman says:

    Well done Cleveland

  4. PBanks says:

    Seems like a fair statement to me. Let’s see what the BCB have to say.

  5. chip says:

    it takes two so why one both were out of order bottom line only in the bda

    • PBanks says:

      Cleveland can’t discipline the Willow Cuts player, they can only deal with their own.

      • inna says:

        And O’Brien doesnt play for Willow Cuts either! He was their guest batsman for the day.

        • Varied says:

          That’s true, although they could ban him from future guest player duty. Don’t know if O’Brien’s club team is considering anything on their end.

    • Cleveland cannot ban a player that does not represent the club.

      • Terry says:

        Well fill us in larry.

        I don’t follow.

        Who does he play for.
        BAA?

        • match says:

          O’Brian plays for St. Georges

        • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

          I don’t know if you’re being genuine with your comment but I balled out loud when I read it…still chuckling actually.

    • He threw first blow that’s why, the other guy was defending himself.

      • Turtle says:

        Defending yourself with a cricket bat?? Not appropriate!

        • So if a guy is working and has a piece of wood in his hand and a guy attacks him, do you think he will rest the wood down and defend himself?

    • blazer says:

      the one CCCC “GOT RID OFF” was from their club.. the other guy, his club needs to do the same, they BOTH have the same attitude problem.

  6. islandgal says:

    Good call Carlton Smith Jr.

  7. Unbelievable says:

    Boom. Decisive. Now if only we can get our politics to do the same.

  8. Jus' Wonderin' says:

    Well if their setting everything straight again….give Bay the EC trophy since they deserve it!

    • Don't Hate! says:

      So you sound like a Bay fan. Better luck next year. If you outright won then you would have cup. It’s time to get over it. See ECCA executives about your problem. Well done for your stand CCCC.

    • RockosBabyGurl says:

      Since BBCC want to set things straight why not give the Junior County cup to Cleveland since Bay forfeited ? Instead of saying it can’t be found but it’s displayed in your bar. Hmmnnn??? Then all will be right would you agree? Before you assume, I am for neither team. Mostly I am for cricket.

      • blazer says:

        I say what a childish way to set a example for your youth team BBCC. its only teaching them how to be sore losers,
        most likely the youths know each other outside of cricket.
        Just remember they only learn what they see.

  9. sml says:

    Welldone Cleveland but I believe both should be held accountable, not just Mr. Anderson. The video shows the other one with the bat in his hand getting ready to hit either Anderson or someone else.

    • Edwin says:

      You are not understanding, Cleveland can only deal with Anderson.

  10. Bermy Realist says:

    Well done Cleveland on your no Tolerance Approach to this situation!

    Ok now Cleveland stepped up and showed no tolerance for such horrible behavior…now will BCB do the same? It would be appreciated if they did the same…as spectators like to go out to these games and we want to enjoy a safe and good game of cricket.

  11. Trulytruly says:

    The right decision. Now no backtracking please.

  12. Stumped says:

    I have a question.
    I know in some private clubs, life can be 2 years to a new committee. So when a new committee comes into power does he have the right to appeal his ban?

  13. Real talk (original) says:

    Kudos to CCCC, but nothing to stop the player from simply taking him and his bad behavior to another club. Where is the BCB?

  14. Huh says:

    May be he’ll get picked up by Willow Cuts?

  15. Oh,I see now says:

    A foregone conclusion anything else would have been rediculous.

  16. Cricket Lover says:

    I doubt if any other club will take him. They dont want to be subjected to all that. Well done Cleveland.

  17. chip says:

    hand to bat ! I don’t know bout that he lucky he missed no justice here

  18. Get em says:

    Excellent stand Mr. smith… However, It would have been just as responsible of your establishment to have taken the same stand a few months ago after the “ugly scenes” at county cup… Again, this is an excellent decision….kudos

  19. really says:

    Club is a joke. They were fine with how they acted first county game but now they making themselves out like they are some humble club.be foreal.

    • blazer says:

      sore loser ???

    • Don't Hate! says:

      Bla bla bla bla bla. Bay fans don’t get tired. Ok so humble means telling your jr. team not to show up. Take off your bib, pacifier and pull-ups . Grow up BBC!!! Cry babies!!

  20. Really says:

    Nah truth teller. We all know how that went down. Way to set an example for the youth right lol. Maybe people like you are just a dopey as the team

  21. Colenall says:

    Is there a local boxing commission?

    With openings?

    Or he could start his own.
