Prime Minister Expresses Words of Congratulations and Encouragement
The Prime Minister Honourable Allen M. Chastanet, along with the Government of Saint Lucia, on Tuesday congratulated the St. Lucia Zouks Cricket Team on their gallant efforts thus far during the Caribbean Premier League Cricket (CPL) T20.
Prime Minister Chastanet wishes to whole-heartedly congratulate the St. Lucia Zouks Team for their performance during the Saint Lucia leg of the tournament and for their fine contribution in the games. Their performances on the field, under the guidance of Captain Daren Sammy and coaches Mr. Stuart Williams and Mr. Trevor Penney, have been passionate and impressive.
Prime Minister Chastanet said, “The weekend’s explosive performance of our batsmen, I believe is keeping the nation’s hopes and dreams alive for grabbing championship. The support of our fans, the fun, excitement, and the essence of Saint Lucia’s love for cricket will, no doubt, encourage our players. I would like to thank the CPL for a wonderful tournament so far and we in Saint Lucia wish them every good luck, for the remainder of the competition.”
Meantime the Prime Minister also recognises and supports our Saint Lucian athletes who are off to represent our nation at the Rio 2016 Olympics. He wishes to give confidence to them to continue to be individuals who have ambition and give their utmost to realise their potential. We want to motivate our athletes to relish in this moment, uphold them for their continuous dedication and perseverance and encourage dreamers to be more active and productive. All this, with the hope that even more individuals will follow the correct path and work hard on the realisation of their own dreams.
