Bridgetown, Barbados, April 20 - (www.bcacicket.org) - Former St. Catherine batsman Terry Watson has died following sickness.
Watson was a member of the St. Catherine team which won the 1997 Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) First (now Elite) division Championship under the captaincy of Gregory Jones.
It was a sensational season for the Bayfield, St. Philip club as they won seven matches including five in the last seven rounds of the 14-team Championship, capturing the title with one series remaining.
Members of that team were Gregory Jones (captain), Horace Walrond, Thelston Payne, Julian Beckles, Dale Mason, Victor Skeete, Brian Shepherd, Pearson Best, Darwin Brathwaite, Terry Watson, Ryle Stuart, Dale Richards, Jason Jordan, Joseph Williams, Dayne Maynard, Victor Brathwaite, Sam Cooper, Dale Brathwaite and George Browne.
One of Watson’s best knocks came in the 1993 Division 1 Competition when he scored 79 not out at No. 4 in a first innings total of 234 for four declared against Pickwick at Kensington Oval in a fourth round match, which St. Catherine won by an innings and one run.
That season St. Catherine finished a close second behind double-crown champions Empire.
