Richardson & Hollis - Chivas Sportsperson of the Week
The Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) and Chivas Regal, the leader in quality blended scotch, announced the winner of the weekly Chivas Cricket Sportsman Award (CCSA).
The winner of the award for weeks 11 & 12 are Russell Richardson and Del Hollis.
Week 11 winner Richardson has been a major contributor to the programs of the Bermuda Cricket Board all year serving as the manager of one of the Bermuda Cricket Board’s National Squads and the Tournament Director for the recently concluded ICC Under 17 Tournament hosted in Bermuda. Richardson does this entirely voluntarily. Richardson has consistently proven to be thorough and hard-working in addition to showing care and empathy to players and members of the community alike.
Week 12 winner, Hollis has been a stalwart of St. David’s Cricket Club for many years. He still plays for the Senior team and is actively involved in the youth programs and puts countless hours into preparing the grounds. On Sunday August 24th, St. David’s Cricket Club was scheduled to play Bailey’s Bay on a day when most games were rained out. Due to Hollis’ efforts on the pitch preparations, pitch covering and grass cutting when there were dry periods the teams were able to complete a game that day.
The Chivas motto is ‘Live with Chivalry,’ and cricket is renowned for being a gentleman’s sport. Only the best for the best, Chivas 18 is a uniquely rich and multi-layered blend that includes over twenty of Scotland's rarest single malt Scotch whiskies.
