BCB's Development Program Wins another Global Award



The Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) is extremely excited to announce that we have been awarded with the "ICC Global Photo of the Year." This award is an outstanding testament to our work because the photo best encapsulates the essence of indigenous community cricket development in action and further endorses the quality and importance of our development work.


The picture (below) taken by Samantha Dill is of Aunde Todd age 5 competing in the BCB Under 8 Youth Programme. Aunde is a remarkable young cricketer who started in our Pee Wee programme at age 4 in 2009 and progressed to the Under 8 League for St. Georges Preparatory in 2010 at the age of 5 validating the BCB's award winning development programme.



Aunde's very proud father, Andre Todd, commented,


"My wife and I are both overjoyed that the photo of Aunde has won this accolade. Aunde is very advanced at cricket because he regularly competes with his older brother DeAundre, playing many hours of cricket in the back garden.  We are grateful for the Board for providing the children in our community with safe and fun activities for them to pursue. The BCB programmes have sparked their passion and enthusiasm for the sport. We are overjoyed that they both embrace cricket as a constructive and positive part of their lives and are very proud of their accomplishments."
