“Big Up” to Mr. Edison Parks
In this week’s edition, we extend special acknowledgement and “Big Up” to Mr. Edison Parks of Sunrise Cricket Club. Over the weekend, in a match played against Berlan, Mr. Edison scored 56 runs and took 5 wickets. Now, what is so amazing about this player is that he is 63 years old, and has been playing cricket from age 12; and the results of the weekend match proves he is still very able and capable on the field. Mr. Edison is also always ready to lend a helping hand to the Executive Committee. Whenever a game is being hosted in Lords Bank, he has always been very dependable in fixing the grounds and making sure everything is ready on time. He has also been one of the biggest supporters in the recent Over-50 matches, taking part in the matches and having other Over-50 players sign up. Mr. Edison, keep doing your thing!!!
