Rufus Bousquet continues to show his undying thirst to push sports in his constituency and thus getting the youths on track.
On Friday March 20, 2009, at the La Fargue Playing Field, the District Rep. made a presentation of a package of cricket gear to the Hard Knocks Cricket Team of Morne Sion and Fiette. The youngsters approached the Rep. sometime in February asking for support so that they could take part in the ongoing domestic cricket competition.
Their request did not fall on deaf ears as immediately Mr. Bousquet placed the order: 3 bats,3 pairs batting pads,3 pairs batting gloves, 1 pair wicket keeping pads and gloves, 3 thigh pads, 3 arm guards, 3 rubber balls and 3 groin protectors: costing about $2000.00.
The team captain ,Turan Peter, express his thanks on behalf of the team and vowed that with this new gear they will perform at the highest level.
Hard Knocks play their first match on Saturday March 28,2009.
