The Sir Ira Simmons Secondary School will be well represented when the West Indies Under-15 team tours the United Kingdom in August.
Dane Edward is reportedly set to join that team next month, alongside his schoolmate and former Gros Islet teammate, Johnnel Eugene.
Dane – an opening batsman – was a member of the Windward Islands Under-15 team under Johnnel’s captaincy in 2014, compiling the fourth highest aggregate in that competition. He also hit 116 runs against Guyana and 75 against Jamaica.
A member of the Northern Cluster Grass Roots Cricket Programme, Dane has also played senior cricket for the northern district this season. He will be travelling along with Johnnel to Tobago this weekend, as both will compete for the Windward Islands in the upcoming Regional Under-17 Cricket Tournament.
