Starcom win celebrity match
It was a festive atmosphere at the St Catherine’s Sports Club last night as scores turned out for Minister of Transport Michael Lashley’s T20 celebrity march.
Young and old converged all around the cricket field located in Bayfield, St Philip, taking up every vantage point to see the play of Michael Lashley’s Mason’s XI, which included nine-time calypso monarch RPB and entertainers Cooper Dan and Mac Fingall as the side’s commentator, as they went up against team Starcom’s team comprising DJ Alvin Toppin and entertainers Ronnie Clarke, Adrian Clarke and Carl ‘Alf’ Padmore.
According to Minister Lashley, the event was an overwhelming success.
“Excellent turn out [and] an enthusiastic crowd. Again the bounding of the community [and] the bringing together of various communities and surrounding districts and corporate Barbados will only augur and rebound to the benefit of the community.
“We had two months of tragic incidents and I believe that this could only uplift the community spirit of St Philip people and their nature as a whole,” Lashley, the member of Parliament for St Philip North told Barbados TODAY following his team’s loss.
