Jamaica Energy Partners (JEP) recently donated $933,000 to the St Catherine Cricket Association.

It’s JEP’s latest contribution to the St Catherine Cricket Association, spanning 18 years.

The company has the responsibility of executing the league annually, as well as to showcase its involvement in the development of the St. Catherine players. JEP has witnessed incredible growth of the cricketers, at the parish level, who now represent the country and region.  

Cecil Gordon Chief Technical Officer at Jamaica Energy Partners, on behalf of the company, hands over a cheque for J$933,000 to Christopher Halstead (middle), St. Catherine Cricket Association Board Member and Millholand Barker (left), President of the St. Catherine Cricket Association.

Wayne McKenzie, JEP’s President and CEO, reiterated that the SCCA should implement a business plan for the programme, as a way to ensure remuneration by successful players. This he believes, will add longevity to the sport as well as support matches independent of sponsors.

JEP’s Chief Technical Officer, Cecil Gordon, represented the company at the launch at the Ewarton Sports Complex last Sunday.
