The Scarborough Cricket Association (SCA) is on  “the upward  trend”  with a record number of teams getting ready for the 2019 season, says Shiv Persaud, president of the Association.

Speaking at  the Association’s recent annual general meeting at the Agincourt community centre, Persaud   said  that “over the past season, we have  had a record number of teams and  the numbers are growing, as we head into the 2019 season.

“This bodes well for the growth of cricket in city of Toronto and we are proud to be leading this upward trend.”

Last year  there were more than 70 teams in the Association.

Persaud said that while the SCA can be proud of its successes, he conceded that  there are ” many areas in which the Association can do  a lot better on the field.”

“And we are looking forward to greater successes in a  stellar 2019.”

Based on the SCA’s constitution, only four positions were contested at the meeting.

Bisham Singh (vice-president), Mathew Francis (assistant secretary/assistant Chief Finance Officer) and Arslan Khan (Public Relations Officer/Marketing) were re-elected.
The lone newcomer was Yunis Motara who took over from Fareed Mohamed as the assistant grounds coordinator.
