Errol needs your assistance

Errol Seneviratne, who stood with distinction in the white coat for almost 3 decades is now in declining health…a combination of failing eye sight and knees which if not rectified soon, may leave him a cripple. As the long hours he stood as an umpire at a time when the game gave men like him little, or no financial reward, would have contributed to the unfortunate condition of his knees.

The Sunday Times understand from Errol that the total cost of surgery has been estimated at Rs.300,000/-, and he is able to raise half of it.

If you so desire to assist this umpiring stalwart of yesteryear send cheque in favour of E. Seneviratne mailed to 82|18, 14th lane Wickremasinghe Pura, Battaramulla.

Sargo honoured by SSC

Cricketing stalwart Sargo Jayawickrema who captained Royal in 1930 and later played with distinction for the SSC and for Ceylon.

Today his former club SSC will honour him by naming one of the gates in his memory. SSC chief Tommy Ellawela appropriately has handed over the task of opening the gate to Sargo’s three nephews Mahes Rodrigo, Dr. Ranjith de Silva and Sunitha Jayawickrema.

The ceremony will take place at 12 noon. (BW)
