QUEENS­LAND Cricket was bowled over by the en­thu­si­asm of North Bur­nett’s ju­nior crick­eters.

Last Satur­day’s come-and-try day at the Gayn­dah Sports­grounds saw 45 ju­niors take to the field and learn new skills.

Wide-Bay Re­gional Cricket man­ager Gra­ham Power said the turnout was “fan­tas­tic for the re­gion”.

The ju­niors learned skills in bat­ting, bowl­ing and field­ing.

Pres­i­dent of Gayn­dah Ju­nior Cricket Arthur Bam­bling told the Cen­tral and North Bur­nett Times the club “was for­tu­nate to have skilled coaches from Queens­land Cricket come and teach the kids”.

With a newcrop of young­sters en­joy­ing the game, the fu­ture looks bright for North Bur­nett cricket. Ju­nior cricket re­sumes with a sign-on and train­ing on Oc­to­ber 15, from 4-5pm at the Gayn­dah Sports­grounds.
