Francis-Crick adds another netball feat to her collection

Francis-Crick adds another netball feat to her collection


Skiddy Francis-Crick added another piece of netball folklore, when she scored an aggregate of 571 goals in this year’s Vita Malt/KDLT Richland Park Netball Tournament, which concluded last Sunday at the Richland Park Government School’s hard court.

This resulted in Francis-Crick being the obvious choice as the tournament’s top goalscorer.

It was the umpteenth time that Francis-Crick has been the recipient of such an accolade in local netball during the past 30 years.

Francis-Crick has the distinction of copping the award for Most Goals in the community netball competitions in which she has participated.

Among one of her standout feats, was her 106 goals scored against BMC JJ’s in 2000 for Maple club in a national club tournament match at the Kingstown Netball Centre.

This followed several scores to her credit in excess of 80, during her best times as a goal shooter.

Still a member of the St Vincent and the Grenadines senior team, Francis-Crick formed a partnership with fellow shooter Shelisa Davis, which was a potent force in High Park United’s continued dominance of the Richland Park tournament.

Davis joined Francis-Crick as the other standout player in the 2018 tournament, as she was named her team’s MVP and the MVP of the tournament.

Also being named their team’s MVPs were Kemeisha Antoine of J&G Scorchers; Anesia John of CMT Outa Trouble; Marcy De Shong – Bruce Law Chambers Greiggs; Celise Antoine – Valley Sports Youths; Kay-juana Bacchus – 3 J’s Valley Strikers; along with Josean Antoine – Vultures; Brittney Williams – Island Blends Success Radio; and Rose Clair Hall – Young Strugglers.

The MVPs were presented with trophies and four packs of Vita Malt.

CMT Outa Trouble were adjudged the Most Disciplined Team and the Most Improved Team – 3 J’s Valley Strikers.

Meanwhile, ardent supporters of the tournament Kenniel Richards, Shorn Paul and Mrs Louisa Cain were all acknowledged by the organizers, the Valley Sports Committee, for their community-spiritedness.
