Ontario Masters Softball Cricket Club (OMSCC) recently held their annual general meeting in Scarborough.

Azeem Karamat Khan, the past president and current vice-president, was elected as league president. Also elected for the first time on the OMSCC board are Paul Jaman as vice-president, Khem Singh secretary, Ganesh Ramraj treasurer and Ramnarine Prashad umpire co-ordinator, while Ron Singh remained the league’s registrar and statistician.

Khan congratulated the new board members, saying he looks forward to working with them and expressed his gratitude to past-president Jai Singh, umpire co-ordinator Suresh Budhoo and disciplinary committee head Sam Chaitnarine.

The OMSCC has reached the milestone of 16 years playing organized softball cricket in the Toronto area with players aged 40 and over. This year there are 22 over-40 teams and eight over-50 teams.

Khan who co-ordinated the first Toronto Cup 1 tournament last September where teams from the U.S., Guyana and Canada participated is looking forward on hosting the Toronto Cup 2 in 2017.

The 2016 season gets underway on May, 29 and the OMSCC will field a team for the Guyana 50th Independence Cup on July 3. The league also hopes to participate in the New York and Guyana International Tournament later this year.
