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.
