The Oliver Go­bat Re­mem­brance T/20 Cricket Tour­na­ment

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Lu­cianAid Foun­da­tion has an­nounced its new col­lab­o­ra­tion with The Oliver Go­bat Sports Fund (TOGS) as the ti­tle spon­sor of the 2017 is­land-wide cricket com­pe­ti­tion. This year’s com­pe­ti­tion is be­ing hosted in re­mem­brance of Oliver Go­bat, for­mer Sales Di­rec­tor at The Land­ings and part of the fam­ily who cre­ated Cap Mai­son.

Oliver, a son of the soil, trag­i­cally passed away in 2014. Ol­lie was an avid sports­man and his love for sports showed in his pas­sion and par­tic­i­pa­tion, not only in ath­let­ics and cricket but also squash. Ol­lie loved the coun­try of his birth, Saint Lu­cia, and was keen on help­ing oth­ers as well.

Or­gan­is­ers hope that the tour­na­ment will not only bring the sport of cricket to the var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ties but also keep Ol­lie’s name alive as his loved ones con­tinue to seek jus­tice for him. All in­ter­ested lo­cal com­mu­nity clubs are in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in this tour­na­ment, with sev­eral clubs hav­ing al­ready reg­is­tered. The Oliver Go­bat Re­mem­brance Cricket Tour­na­ment is set to com­mence this week­end with sched­uled matches to be held in the com­mu­ni­ties of Mon Re­pos, Den­nery and Babon­neau.
