 Meanwhile, Major Radcliffe Daley is the Treasurer and KelliDawn Hamilton, Assistant Treasurer. Former CWI Communications boss Carole Beckford is the Honorary Secretary and Wayne Lewis the Assistant Secretary.

In expressing his delight at being returned to the top office, Cameron said he wanted “Kensington to be the place where a young and aspiring cricketer would want to be a part of.”

The club marks 140 years of existence this year. They will celebrate the milestone on the weekend of October 11 – 14, 2019 when there will be a church service, brunch and cricket matches featuring its past and current players. There will also be a party at the clubhouse.

Cameron said the club will also initiate activities to identify the role cricket has played in the community, show the impact all the great cricketers have had on the community, Jamaica, the West Indies and the world, as well as help re-focus the community on how it can re-engage residents to continue the path to growth and development.
