Un­der 14 team makes grand fi­nal at Coun­try Week

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

JU­NIOR Coun­try Week cricket in the North­ern Rivers Cricket com­pe­ti­tion was held be­tween Jan­uary 3 and 6.

Euroa young­sters from lo­cal ju­nior and se­nior teams were well-rep­re­sented in dif­fer­ent teams in this com­pe­ti­tion.

They in­cluded An­drew Cros­bie (un­der 16), Tom Panuc­cio (un­der 15), James Her­ring and Nic Burke (un­der 14) and Fletcher Paul and Nic Hill (un­der 13).

Games were played across the re­gion in Shep­par­ton, Mooroopna, Murchi­son, Tal­la­rook, Sey­mour, Nu­murkah, Yea, Tal­ly­ga­roopna, Co­bram and Bendigo.

Ini­tially the games were played on Tues­day through to Thurs­day with the fi­nals on Fri­day.

The un­der 14 team won all their games and played in the grand fi­nal on Fri­day, against Bendigo at Rochester, al­though they were not vic­to­ri­ous in this match.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties such as these are a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence for any child, es­pe­cially those from coun­try re­gions as they pro­vide them with a chance to play with and against very skilled play­ers which will no doubt lead to many in­di­vid­ual im­prove­ments.

For these chil­dren to par­tic­i­pate in this event there had to be a huge com­mit­ment from par­ents and other fam­ily mem­bers, as the chil­dren were trans­ported across the coun­try­side ev­ery day.

PHO­TOS: Emma Kubeil

CEL­E­BRA­TIONS: Tom Panuc­cio and Henry Jack­son (un­der 15) en­joy the mo­ment af­ter a wicket falls at Mooroopna.
