ZCU’s Interim President, Mr Reuben Chama, speech on the 17th September 2011, at the Nkana Cricket Club – Kitwe
On behalf of my Executive Committee, I wish to state that today is a joyous occassion, as we are now laying a foundation for the youth in cricket development.
As Zambia Cricket Union, our development stragegy is to target the youth in both private and government schools throughout the country, and introduce criket so that it is played as an intergral part of physical education / sporting activities. As the game will be developing we shall, through Provincial or Regional Associaitions, draw up inter-town fixtures.
I would likt to urge the recipients of the cricket equipment to closely liaise with the Copperbelt Cricket Association throught the Cricket Development Officiers in each town, so that this program is a success.
Before i hand over the cricket equipment, I would like to thank World Vision for donating this equipment to the Zambia Cricket Union in thier contribution to support our development programs.
As you are all aware, the future of any sport lies in it’s youth. Once again, a big thank you to World Vision for thier support.
