Mr. Reginald Pearman, President stated,


"The Bermuda Cricket Board is excited to welcome the prestigious MCC to Bermuda once again who are known world-wide to be guardians of the laws, safe guardians of the Spirit of the game and pursue promoting cricket especially to young people for the good of the game. We are pleased to announce the Festival Game in which the MCC team will take on Bermuda's World Cup squad on Monday 26 September at Somerset CC.  This is a great opportunity to celebrate the team that took Bermuda to the world stage in the 2007 Cricket World Cup in the West Indies. These players leave a legacy that all young Bermudian cricketers should strive for."


Mr. Pearman concluded, "The MCC has also provided a coaching day in which we plan for them to visit a local school followed by a coaching session with the National Academy teams on Tuesday 27 September."


National Coach, David Moore stated,


"The MCC tour will be a wonderful opportunity for the National squad members to challenge themselves. The MCC squad is a high quality opposition that includes International, First Class and Second XI cricketers that will test our players skills and tactical knowledge. Such opposition can only lead to an improvement of our players and the team as a whole.

With the BCB National squad working toward the ICC T20 Qualifiers in Dubai in 2012 and the World Cricket League Division 3 in 2013 the timing of this tour is very important. This will lead in to our winter training program and may be the only opportunity we get to play against quality opposition before the T20 qualifiers.

This is also an opportunity for our younger players such as Tre Manders, Lateef Trott, Regino Smith and Allan Douglas Junior as well experienced players like Glenn Blakeney to perform against such quality opponents and make the winter squad program and then progress to the final team."
