FCC counts gains of club cricket at 30

CricketFoundation Cricket Club, Lagos, marked its 30th anniversary at the weekend with executive and members of the club rolling out drums to celebrate their achievements and contributions to the development of the game in Nigeria.

Since 1985, the FCC has offered a lot and added values to the game which prior to the founding of the club, was virtually non-existence.

Coordinator of the club, Olayinka Fisher, said FCC was formed by four gentlemen who included himself, Ako Amadi, Moye Adenuga and Kwesi Sagoe, with the aims to, among other things, discountenance the dichotomy in Lagos cricket that arose from the tense rivalry between the then two top teams, Dyaks and LACC, encouraged and popularised the playing of cricket in Nigeria, provide facilities in secondary schools and tertiary institutions in Nigeria and encouraged playing tours of the clubs within and outside the country.
