Former President of Cricket West Indies Indies Ricky Skerritt has been appointed chairman of the board of Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua.
Coolidge Cricket Ground is operated by the government of Antigua and has been heavily used by Cricket West Indies to host training camps for the various West Indies teams.
It has also hosted regional and international matches. Formerly the Airport Ground, Coolidge was Acquired by the disgraced Allen Stanford who later renamed it after himself.
However since he was sentenced for fraud, the ground was taken over by the government.
Current CWI boss Dr. Kishore Shallow says the appointment of Skerritt as chairman, augurs well for the continuation and further investment in the potential of the facility.
Shallow says the former CWI head’s “institutional knowledge” would be key to the success of the CCG project.
There’re major plans for the ground, infact Antiguan Prime Minister Gaston Browne was this week presented with the CCG master development plan.
The latest version of the CCG development plan includes an updated design of the complex, featuring a state-of-the-art training facility and commercial establishments.
