Cricket winners named
THE Gayndah Junior Cricket break-up was a fun affair that marked the end of a successful season.
Jonte Emmerton, who with Lyndon Kenny shared the Most Improved Cricketer honours, said he loved the game.
“I’ve been playing cricket two years,” Jonte said.
“The game is quite easy when you know the game.”
Jonte said he enjoyed catching the ball in his favourite field position of wicket-keeper and, as batsman, “hitting the ball in partnership with your friend”.
“I’ve improved in my bowling, in my wickets and the speed of my bowling,” Jonte said.
“Next season I’ll work on my batting. It’s important to always keep your eye on the ball and watch the bounce.”
Gayndah Junior Cricket chairman and coach Arthur Bambling awarded the Amazing Attitude Award to James Parr for being the “most dedicated and consistent to attend training”, and the All-rounder Award to Will Roth for scoring the most runs and taking most wickets.
“We have had an excellent season with regular attendance at training and seven two-way meets with Mundubbera, which were well supported at both venues,” Bambling said.
“The attitude and enthusiasm shown by the young cricketers are to be commended and congratulations to all those young people who played the season.
“Thank you to all those parents who supported the growth of junior cricket in Gayndah.”
The sign-on for the 2015-16 season is expected to be held in August.
