Government wishes Preston McSween success in England

The Ministry of Youth and Sports has congratulated Grenadian fast bowler Preston McSween who is with the West Indies team in England as a reserve.
The 24-year-old former GBSS student is one of 11 reserve players training with the 14-man Caribbean team for their three-match test series against England which began on July 08.
The West Indies will defend the Wisden Trophy in three back-to-back Test matches to be played behind closed doors, from July 08 – 28 in England.
McSween, who is a participant of the Ministry of Sports’ Elite Athlete’s Program, made his international debut on the West Indies Under-19 team at the 2014 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
The left-hand fast bowler made his first-class debut for Barbados in the 2016-2017 PCL Regional Four Day Tournament. He then signed with the Windward Islands Volcanoes where he continued his professional career.
In March 2020, he was named Player of the Match after taking 6 wickets for 64 runs to lead the Windward Islands Volcanoes to victory against the Jamaica Scorpions in the 2019-2020 West Indies Championship.
The West Indies Squad and Reserve Players arrived in England via private charter, almost one month ahead of the test series. This is to ensure they comply with all UK Government’s rules and guidelines implemented to fight against the COVID-19 virus.
The squad will live, train and play in a “bio-secure” environment during the seven weeks of the tour, as part of the comprehensive medical and operations plans to ensure player and staff safety.
In aFacebook post the Ministry of Sports states – “The Government and people of Grenada are immensely proud of you and wish you the very best on this new course of your cricketing career.”
The Ministry of Youth Development, Sports, Culture and the Arts remains committed in providing support to all athletes, coaches and sports associations in the development of sports throughout Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique.
