Former West Indies wicket keeper-batsman Junior Murray is preparing to launch a cricket academy in Grenada.



Murray, who played for Grenada, Windward Islands and West Indies, is spearheading a series of initiatives under the Junior Murray Brand.



The initiative includes an academy, according to Made In Grenada, the strategic partner responsible for the overall management of the brand and its activities.



The cricket academy will serve young Grenadians between the ages of 5 and 15 and is geared toward the development of the game locally through the services and expertise of one of Grenada’s most celebrated heroes.



Preparations have also started for the staging of the first annual Junior Murray/Made In Grenada Celebrity Cricket match in February.



The inaugural match will form part of the festivities to celebrate Grenada’s 40th anniversary of Independence.
