Her­vey Bay Soft­ball rep tri­als in Bund­aberg

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - SPORT -

HER­VEY Bay Soft­ball As­so­ci­a­tion will hold its first rep­re­sen­ta­tive tri­als.

The in­clu­sion of three Bund­aberg-based clubs –

The Waves, Broth­ers United, and Bar­gara – re­sulted in a vast in­crease in Her­vey Bay Soft­ball’s play­ing num­bers.

It means that this Sun­day, Her­vey Bay will re­quire rep­re­sen­ta­tive tri­als for the first time, with the com­pe­ti­tion’s best male and fe­male un­der-15 play­ers to com­pete for po­si­tions in the state cham­pi­onship teams.

The tri­als will be held at Broth­ers’ Fair­cloth Cres, Bund­aberg, di­a­mond.

Her­vey Bay Soft­ball pres­i­dent Donna Jenk­ins said it was eas­ier to host tri­als at Bund­aberg due to vastly su­pe­rior num­ber of el­i­gi­ble play­ers com­ing from those three clubs.

She said the tri­als were a good thing, par­tic­u­larly for Her­vey Bay’s ju­niors.

“It’s good as they’ll have to earn their po­si­tion in the teams. We’ve never had to have tri­als,” she said.

Joy McPher­son will coach the U15 boys, with Di Phillips the U15 girls coach.

The tri­als run from 9am.
