Two Sons Of Barbados Doing Well – Cricketer Chris Jordan and Jockey Rico Walcott

Rico Walcott Coming Home

After a great season in Alberta, Jockey Rico Walcott is coming home to Barbados. Why is he coming home? He’s been offered a good contract to ride on Bajan turf. Can’t get much better than that.

We understand that a certain little girl is very happy about the news! 😉

Chris Jordan Moves On Up!

CHRIS Jordan has admitted he will never forget his first wicket for Surrey – but the rising star has no intention of resting on his laurels.

The 18-year-old made an impressive debut for the Brown Caps in their Natwest Pro40 Division Two defeat against Middlesex at Lord’s earlier this month, claiming the scalp of England batsman Owais Shah.

    When you post about two young Bajans who are doing well he calls it “rubbish”.

    Leave him BFP for he is the best campaign spokesman that the DLP could wish for!

  3. I doubt that character has any political affiliation, if we all woke up tomorrow and found the world perfectly perfect – he’d very likely be vex since there’s nothing to complain about!
