The outfield of the Warner Park cricket stadium and the practice turf of the Len Harris Cricket Academy will remain in top shape when the Australian and West Indies cricket teams battle in St. Kitts on July 4 and 6.
The regular maintenance schedule of the Ministry of Sports coupled with the recent donation by Reginald Francis of St. Kitts Marine Works, will ensure this.
Mr. Francis explained that he held discussions with the grounds men at Warner Park and learnt that a specialized type of sand was required to aid the nourishment of the field. He added that the sand is not native to St. Kitts and Nevis and so he acquired the coarse sand from St. Maarten.
“St. Kitts Marine Works “¦ transported it [the sand] via barge, we trucked it here to Warner Park and took care of all of the expenses,” Francis said, adding that the investment in sports is money well spent as it positively impacts young people.
