Under the inspired direction of David Robertson, the Western Union – GKRS Deaf Cricket League held its first match in June and continued play into July.

Four teams were involved: LMG A, LMG B, May Pen Unit and a Jamaica College invitational team. Because of extenuating circumstances, the CCCD-Mandeville and CCCD-Kingston teams were unable to participate, although they will compete in the League next year.

The opening ceremony was at Jamaica College on Saturday, 29 June with sponsors from Western Union present. Both Ms. Kathleen ‘Nella’ Webb, and Mr. Herbert Hall came to wish the cricketers good luck in their efforts. Throughout the summer competition, the students displayed good sportsmanship and enthusiasm.
