… as DCC Summer camp concludes“STRIVE to be well all-rounded students of the game”, were the words of President of the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) Alfred Mentore, instilled upon the graduates of the club’s annual three-week summer camp which concluded last Friday at the Queenstown based club.Speaking to over eighty (80) students and in the presence of officials of The Ministry of Education, Department of Youth Culture and Sport Permanent Secretary Alfred King, Mentore emphasised the need for youngsters to balance both their academic and cricketing skills in an effort to avoid being a one dimensional individual.More so, the club President explained to the graduates that their participation in the game is not limited to the field, as they are now opportunities for persons to engage in the areas of coaching, commentary,and statistics,among many more.Mentore further gave the example of the camp’s best student, Jordon Nelson, who came to the camp not knowing much about the game, but instead of gravitating towards the on-field action, he quickly became abreast with the correct scoring and the rules of the sport.Meanwhile, King,in his address reminisced on the days with the bat and ball and firmly stated that the DCC summer camp should be a model for other sporting institutions and developing sports men and women.Head coach Gavin Nedd challenged the young cricketers to build on the knowledge gained and the need to conduct self-training if they wish to reach the summit.In closing, the club President thanked all the sponsors for their support and looked forward to future partnerships for such programmes.The camp, which catered for persons from as young as four years old, focused on areas such as public speaking, health and nutrition, the necessity of fitness, the rules of the game, and as well as the technical on-field play.Several of the top performers received trophies while each attendee received a certificate of participation.
Black Stars legend Osei Kofi argues that although Stephen Appiah is the best captain of his generation, the player shouldn’t be called ‘the best ever’.Appiah, 34, recently announced his retirement, bringing to an end a career which saw him rise through the ranks to become one of the most respected skippers on the continent.The former Juventus and Fenerbahçe midfielder led Ghana to its maiden World Cup in 2006 and followed it up by leading the team in 2010, too.These achievements, Osei Kofi said, makes the ‘Tornado’ the most successful Black Stars captain in his generation.“Stephen Appiah was one of the best in his generation, no doubt about that. But he is not the most successful captain for the Black Stars of all time. “I will choose Aggrey Fynn over him,” he said on Asempa FM’s Sports Avenue. The great professorEdward ‘Naabanyin’ Jonah Aggrey-Fynn, known by many aliases because of his varied talents, was a founding member of the Black Stars in 1958. Ohene Djan described Aggrey-Fynn as football’s “gentleman strategist” whilst the late Henry Plange Nyemitei labelled him the “master tactician”. As captain of the Black Stars on an European tour of 1961, Aggrey-Fynn excelled as a leader and remained in command of the Black Stars until they conquered Africa to become the winners of the 1963 Cup of Nations.He led the Black Stars to qualify for the first time to play in the Tokyo Olympics of 1964. Aggrey-Fynn died in 2005.On captaincy…In a related development, the former Kotoko legend – now a reverend minister – also rubbished suggestions by the 2014 World Cup Commission of Inquiry that Asamoah Gyan be given formal leadership training at a recognized institution.This comes on the back of the commission’s recommendation that the Ghana skipper is unfit to handle conflicts in the national team, because the fiasco during the last World Cup happened under his watch.“We are going too far in this country. The commissioners are not technical men so they don’t have technical eyes to tell somebody to go for leadership training before he can succeed”, Osei Kofi added. He also hinted that the Justice Dzamefe-led commission overreached in many of their recommendations.–Follow Gary on Twitter: @garyalsmith
