The Jamaica Cricket Association celebrated Nikita Miller on his 100th first-class game prior to the start of the Jamaica Scorpions and Barbados Pride match that commenced at Sabina Park on Thursday.

Incumbent Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) president Wilford ‘Billy’ Heaven easily survived a challenge from Mark Neita to return to the top post for another two years.

Heaven, who will now serve a third term, recorded a comfortable 62 to 37 win during the association’s General Meeting on Thursday.  In a resounding victory, a breakdown of the vote showed that Heaven was triumphant in three of the four divisions.  The incumbent won division 2, 21-5, division 3, 16-6 and division 4, 15-9 with Neita scoring a 17-10 victory in division 1.

The rest of his Heaven’s slate was also highly successful.  In the race for second vice president, Fitz Harris defeated Nehemiah Perry 64-34.  Diann Campbell secured the post of honorary secretary after defeating Neil Reese 73-25.  Clinton Clarke defeated Major Aubyn Sibbles 71-26 to claim the post of assistant secretary.  Kerry Scott defeated Nigel Logan 75-23 to claim the position of treasurer, with Michael Atterbury securing the nod over Errol Moodie via a 68-29 margin for the post assistant treasurer. 

Dr Donovan Bennet will serve as first vice president after securing the nomination to the post unopposed.  He will replace Neita who held the post in the previous administration.

President of the Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA), Wilford ‘Billy’ Heaven, says the new year will bring with it, a new head coach for the Jamaica Scorpions, a local one.
