Cricket coaching in Cuncolim and clubs registered from Cuncolim with Goa Cricket Association


Are any of the clubs from Cuncolim, Chinchinim, Assolna, Betul, Balli, Fatorpa registered with Goa Cricket Association (GCA) and playing in the various Leagues of GCA. -Majorda, Utorda and Betalbatim, registered with GCAAs per my knowledge only Velim has one club in the name of Social Welfare club of Ziano Velim registered with GCA.

Then there was one club registered from Fatorpa, but has come to know that due to infighting they have lost their registration with GCA. Furthermore, in Cuncolim a number of mega cricket tournaments are held but no cricket club worth its name is registered with GCA.

The registration has its set of challenges

More so there are no cricket coaching facilities for cricketers from Cuncolim and also in the surrounding villages.

Talking about coastal villages, I do remember Betalbatim Cricket club was quiet a strong club and two players I do remember watching them play was Eban Mesquita, who is also a football coach and Prof Rebello, who later was teaching us physics at Chowgule Higher Secondary and retired as principal of Fr Agnel Higher Secondary School Verna. He was a good fast bowler and would generate quiet a pace with height and action.
