Isis fields under-10 team for first time
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.
