Kingston College to Honor Cricketing Greats


The Kingston College Old Boys’ Association will pay homage to its cricketing greats at the association’s 25th anniversary gala slated for May 12 in Queen’s, New York.
At the event, awards will be presented to Jimmy Cameron, J.K Holt, Easton McMorris, Michael Holding, Marlon Tucker, Robert Samuels, Mark Neita, Marlon Samuels, and posthumously to the late Collie Smith, for their outstanding achievements on the cricketing pitch and bringing international recognition to the school.
The presidential award, the association’s highest honour, will be presented posthumously to Roy McLean and Gladstone Neil, noted cricket coaches at the famed North Street, Kingston school.
“Through their coaching guidance and playing potential, these men have given our school, country and region pride of place in the international sporting community and we feel that this recognition is most deserving at this time,” noted Noel Spencer, co-chair of the 25th anniversary gala.
Michael Holding, one of the most decorated players in the annals of West Indies cricket, will serve as master of ceremonies at the event, while distinguished coach and commentator Jimmy Richards, will be the guest of honor.
Proceeds from the event will benefit a number of core academic and extra-curricula programmes supported by the Old Boys’ Association at the school.
