Junior cricketers try out their playing skills
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.
