Cricket Legend Courtney Walsh for Junior Murray Celebrity Match

The game, scheduled for February 9 at the Progress Park in St Andrew, will form part of activities marking Grenada’s 40th anniversary of Independence.

They will join former Combined and Windward Islands spinner Thomas Kentish on the Junior Murray team which will play against an Ex-National Eleven.

Other regional and international cricketing friends of Junior Murray are expected to confirm their participation as the count down to the game continues.

Meantime, the month of January is very special to Murray. Not only is it his birth-month but it is also the month of his most significant accomplishment, the month, 21 years ago, when he made his debut as a West Indies test cricketer.

To commemorate both events a Junior Murray fun day was hosted on Saturday at the Old Trafford Playing Field in Tanteen.

All Junior Murray’s sporting interests were very well represented. Those interests included his recently launched Junior Murray Cricket Academy, his Upsetters Cricket Club and his ‘Move It to Lose It’ Exercise Club.

Also attending the activity were a number of former and current national athletes, family members (including his Mother and Father), the parents of the participants of the Academy and members of the entertainment fraternity.

The day was a fitting tribute to one of Grenada’s true heroes, not only for his on-field accomplishments, but for his continued commitment to the development of cricket in Grenada, his interest in the well-being of young people and his devotion to country.

Murray, who played in 33 tests and 55 One-Day Internationals for the West Indies, turns 46 on Monday.
