Clubs still looking to youth
Most of the Bermuda players, just back from Malaysia, may have to wait another week for their first taste of domestic cricket action, as clubs look set to continue playing their youngsters in the final round of Open League cricket this weekend.
“That’s what it’s about, we’re playing the youngsters,” Irving Romaine, the Bailey’s Bay coach, said of his intention to use the competition for its intended purpose of developing young players. Bay play host to St George’s at Sea Breeze Oval in one of three Premier Division matches scheduled for today.
Bay have Bermuda captain Terryn Fray and former captain Stephen Outerbridge back from international duty, but their first action could be in the 50 overs competition, which starts next weekend.
St George’s also have their captain, Macai Simmons, back from international duty. They are still looking for their first victory in the Open competition after last weekend’s seven-wicket loss to St David’s.
Bailey’s Bay also lost last weekend, going down to Southampton Rangers who will play Western Stars today at St John’s Field. Rangers may also opt to continue with their youngsters even though they have four players back from Malaysia, captain Janeiro tucker, Dion Stovell and new signings Charles Trott and Tre Manders.
In the other match Somerset host St David’s while Cleveland play Flatts at Wellington Oval in the lone First Division contest.
There is just one Premier Division match scheduled for tomorrow, with St George’s hosting Stars in their first home match of the season. The match was rescheduled from April 28 because their field was not ready at the time.
In the First Division, Somerset Bridge play Flatts at White Hill Field and Devonshire Rec take on Willow Cuts at home.
