Isis fields un­der-10 team for first time

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

THE first week of ju­nior cricket had spe­cial sig­nif­i­cance for Isis Cricket Club – it was the first time they have had a team.

The un­der-10 Isis team wel­comed 11 new play­ers to the play­ing arena for the first round, with only four play­ers hav­ing had pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence.

Scott Re­hbein has looked after the bud­ding crop of crick­eters, who all hail from the Isis area.

“My two boys and two other kids played for Bundy teams last year but we wanted to field one of our own,” Re­hbein said.

“We had those four so that was the start. We used word-of-mouth to get the mes­sage around and let the schools know.

“A few of the blokes I play with have kids as well who have joined in.”

As the un­der-10 com­pe­ti­tion is non-com­pet­i­tive it has the ben­e­fit of per­fect con­di­tions to learn the game.

“We had 15 boys and they usu­ally play six or eight-aside so they split into two teams,” Re­hbein said.

“If we get more play­ers we’ll just take more teams. I won’t turn any­one away.”

The un­der-10s train at 4pm everyWed­nes­day at Childers State School’s oval, with games at Across The Waves’ rugby league fields on Thurs­day evenings.

To join the team, phone Re­hbein on 0419 412 620.
