THE Komo Cricket Association is already on cloud nine, despite the fact that the Easter competition is still two weeks away.

This follows the gift of cricket gear to the association by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama on Tuesday.

Association manager Pauliasi Tuiafata said the gift would assist the island club during the Crompton Cup competition.

"This is a great help to us and we thank the Prime Minister for donating the gear," he said.

"Our boys are training hard for the competition and this will really help us."

Cricket Fiji development manager Saiasi Fuli said the gift came via a request from the association.

"The PM visited Komo, Namuka, Ogea and Vanuavatu and it was during the visit that he was approached by the association," he said.

"I guess it's timely for the association to receive the gear as they all would be working hard, eyeing the national champion title."

The PM will also gave another set of cricket gear to the Ono Cricket Association.
