Cricket play­ers do re­gion proud

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

YOUNG crick­eters from Gayn­dah and Biggen­den played in the Wide Bay se­lec­tion tri­als last week­end.

Hay­den Beres­ford, Wil­liam Rolf and Law­son Kenny trav­elled to Bund­aberg as part of the Cen­tral and South Bur­nett un­der-12 cricket team.

The boys played against Bund­aberg and Gympie over the week­end and whilst they didn’t get a win, they cer­tainly put in fine per­for­mances.

Cen­tral Bur­nett Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion vice pres­i­dent Mal­colm Beres­ford said, “the boys did us proud”.

He said the team had only been put to­gether last week­end and hadn’t had the chance to do any train­ing to­gether.

And with the big­ger teams like Bund­aberg train­ing twice a week and play­ing weekly games it was al­ways go­ing to be tough.

“They played well and it was good to see them tak­ing wick­ets and high fiv­ing,” Beres­ford said.

“They make new friends and it’s good to get these young kids in­volved in cricket.”
