Ghana Cricket President applauds Nsroma Cricket Academy

Ghana Cricket President applauds Nsroma Cricket Academy

By Kenneth O. ADADE, Accra
President of the Ghana Cricket Association (GCA), William Ampofo has commended the management of Nsroma Cricket Academy on their efforts to develop the sport at the grassroots level.

He said Nsroma Cricket Academy was setting a good pace in youth cricket development in Ghana, which is worth emulating from other members of the cricket fraternity.
The President gave these commendations during the closing ceremony of the Greater Accra Cricket U-19 League, which was organised by Nsroma Cricket Academy and won by AD&TS Dolphins cricket club.
He said, “Nsroma is always setting the pace in youth cricket development in Accra and in Ghana. I am very happy to see how far Nsroma has come. I remember when they started with two children, and I have always encouraged Mr Asamoah to keep the academy growing.
“The ultimate for you is to play in the U-19 national team, so you have to take these tournaments serious."
He further encouraged the young cricketers with the achievement of the U-19 team this year in Kenya and promised the continuous support from the GCA.
“You know that Ghana managed to get to World Cup qualifiers, but unfortunately we didn’t make it and that was the first time Ghana almost made it to the World Cup.
“You also know that there were key players from Nsroma. So if you want to make the next U-19 team, you have to work hard with the guidance of your coaches.
“The GCA will continue to support you. It’s not just the love for the game, but you must be disciplined, understand and apply the laws of the game. I’m sure that in the near future, Ghana will make it to the U-19 Cricket World Cup,” the President noted.
The one-month league had support from GCA, GACA, AD&TS, Taysec, Bush Kanteen, Nsroma GPS and Barima Kwaku Duah.
It has, however, served the purpose of sharpening the talents and skills of the young ones as some players who have been selected will begin serious training for further assessment to the national U-19 team.
