The president, executives and members of the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) have offered congratulations to former West Indies all-rounder Roger Harper on his appointment as coach of the Guyana Amazon Warriors franchise for the 2013 Caribbean Premier League.

Below is the full text of the message issued by the club on Saturday.

“The president and executive members of the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) would like to congratulate our former president Roger Andrew Harper on his appointment as head coach of the Guyana franchise team in the inaugural Caribbean Premier League T20 tournament.

Roger is an honorable member of the DCC, former Guyana, West Indies cricketer turned coach, who played both Test and ODI cricket for the West Indies, during a 13-year international career.

We at the DCC strongly believe and respect your vast experience at this helm along with your assistant coach the great Curtly Ambrose and youthful talented players like Christopher Barnwell and Trevon Griffith, whom both hail from the DCC. In this regard, we feel that the Guyana franchise team is equipped to bring home the inaugural title.

Your appointment and the selection of two of DCC’s young ambassadors in this 2013 inaugural Caribbean Premier League T20 tournament do serve as an inspiration to our younger players who have enormous talent and dreams. It’s no secret that the Demerara Cricket Club has produced some of the greatest players and administrators for this game we all love and continue to contribute selflessly to its long term development.

Once again congratulations! The whole of DCC and Guyana will be rallying behind you and your team. There is no greater honour than to be recognised by others in your field.”
