EACA Elects 2009 Executive Committee
Rudy Persaud Returned As President

By newyorkcricket.com Staff Correspondent

March 5th, 2009
The Eastern American Cricket Association (EACA) recently held elections for its 2009 executive slate and Nazir “Rudy” Persaud was returned as its president for the second straight year. In fact the entire 2008 Executive Committee was returned unopposed, except for Vice President Steve Mangru, who did not seek reelection.

Colin Sandy of Atlantis Cricket Club was elected as vice president of the league.

The elections were held at the very popular Naresa Palace on Rockaway Boulevard in Queens and was well attended by several of the association’s affiliate club representatives and former executive members, including Krish Prasad and John Aaron, products of the association and now USACA - the national cricketing organization’s Board Director and Executive Secretary, respectively. Both gentlemen addressed the annual general meeting and pledged their support to the association, while noting the positive role the association has played during the past year in the development of youth cricket, as well as in other areas of cricket in the New York area.

Filling Mangru’s position as VP is Atlantis Cricket Club’s Colin Sandy. It is the lanky off-spinner’s first stint as an officer in the league and he promised to make a difference on the slightly altered executive body of the league. The 2009 EACA Executive Committee headed by Rudy Persaud, now includes Colin Sandy as Vice President, Sunesh Wazid, Secretary, Sase Singh, Treasurer, and veteran cricket administrator and former EACA President Zaman Juman in the Assistant Secretary/Treasurer’s seat.

Rudy Persaud, no stranger to the local cricket administration scene will continue to represent the EACA on the New York Cricket Region’s administrative board headed by Jefroy Morrishaw. The omnipresent Persaud, a protégé of New York’s Regional Representative Krish Prasad, is an active participant in many of the cricket initiatives in the New York region, including the New York City Mayor’s Cup, Ed Ahmad and PSAL tournaments and the region’s inter-league competitions.

This year the EACA is expected to field 12-14 teams in its regularly scheduled 45-overs and Twenty20 competitions, utilizing some seven grounds stretching from Heckscher State Park on the south eastern coast of Long Island to Jacob Riis Park in the middle of the Rockaway Peninsula of Queens, New York, to the west.

newyorkcricket.com wishes the EACA Executive Committee the very best of luck for the upcoming season and look forward to reporting on the league’s tournaments.
