BCB Program Update


Further to recent events, the Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) wanted to clarify certain misleading statements contained in the media and attach an update and summary of BCB activities and programs. 


  • The BCB has unqualified, clean audit opinions for the last 5 years and files their financial statements on a timely basis with the Registry General.
  • The BCB published an Annual report of its 2006 activities, programs, results and financial statements that has been widely distributed.
  • The BCB regularly reports to the Minister of Sport on its programs, outcomes and its financial statements. The grant draw-downs are also reviewed by the Ministry of Finance.
  • Bermuda is a country with an available population of less than 50,000 has 3 national sides in the top 16 in the world.
  • Bermuda is the ICC Americas Regional U19 and senior champion
  • Bermuda U15 have lost only one game in 6 years
  • Bermuda youth leagues have expanded from 200 players in 2004 to 975 in 2007.
  • BCB and Ministry of Education work together to ensure every school plays cricket in an organized, safe and fun manner.
  • The ICC has declared Bermuda the big winner of the development awards, taking 3 of 8 awards on offer.
  • Bermuda has once again won the ICC Best Overall Development Program for the second time in three years.
  • Cricket infrastructure continues to improve with clubs receiving pitch covers, bowling machines, artificial surfaces and cricket nets.
  • Shelley Bay field has been re-laid in a joint project between Ministry of Sports and the BCB


Mr. Pearman also noted:  "I would like to take this opportunity to remind the public that for Bermuda to qualify is a great achievement, expectations of success against professional teams should be limited.  I urge the country to give their national teams the support they deserve for their accomplishments and endeavors. Whether the teams win, lose or draw they will return as better cricketers and more experienced individuals. For those team?s that are competing against World Class opposition they will have a unique opportunity to learn and develop from the tournament. I support their efforts wholeheartedly and wish them all the best in the upcoming games as they give their best to represent Bermuda to the best of their ability."
