RBTT official banking on good publicity in women’s cricket


Wanting to avoid an overdraft in negative publicity as occurred last year, Noel Dickson, Human Resource Manager at RBTT/RBC, wants to see a surplus of positivity in this year’s women’s cricket competition.{{more}}

Dickson made known his wishes last Saturday, as the 2014 RBTT/RBC sponsored edition, administered by the St Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association, got started at the Stubbs Playing Field.

“It is important that this year’s competition, we be found in the papers for all the good reasons… When we sponsor activities, we have certain criteria that we want persons to follow… and we believe that you folks have that ability to satisfy those. It is for that reason why we are again sponsoring this particular competition,” Dickson commented.

Dickson reflected that during the 2013 edition, “there were some negative publications on this competition in our papers…”

The RBTT/ RBC official was referring to media reports of the vagaries of the competition, including fixturing of matches.

But his words would have fallen to the ground almost immediately, as the belated presentation of the first and second place trophies showed up another inefficiency of the organisers.

The “women’s” trophies handed over clearly depicted a male at the top clothed in cricket gear, playing a stroke.

Last year, JG Tigress won the twenty/20 version and United Survivors – the 40-over format.

However, there were some controversies as United Survivors had to protest to have the decision reversed in the 40-over competition, after Tigress were originally declared winners.

Members of United Survivors had walked out at one point of the 2013 St Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association annual presentation and awards ceremony, staged at the Murray’s Heights Hotel on Friday, December, 20. (RT)
