Childers cricket teams

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

CHILDERS has two cricket teams in the Divi­sion 3 com­pe­ti­tion in Bund­aberg.

Cap­tain of green team Wayne Dowl­ing said Childers team white was run­ning sixth on the lad­der and green, the de­fend­ing pre­miers were run­ning sev­enth in the com­pe­ti­tion with eight teams.

“Rod­er­ick Jensen is the cap­tain of team white. Both teams are lower than last sea­son,” Mr Dowl­ing said.

“We have both lost some qual­ity play­ers this sea­son and we have strug­gled to field two teams each week.

“Childers have strug­gled this sea­son and we are down on the team con­sis­tency.”

Rod­er­ick Jensen is the lead­ing run scorer for team white with a score of 113 this sea­son.

A solid con­trib­u­tor for the white team is bats­man Graeme Bartlett, who has im­pressed coaches this year.

Team Green has strug­gled for runs dur­ing the sea­son with Chris Fisher and Len­non Childs be­ing the ma­jor con­trib­u­tors.

“Lead­ing the wick­ets ta­ble is Jensen, he was last year’s Isis Out­laws club player of the year,” he said.

Childers green team top bowlers are Char­lie Thomp­son and Nic Lind­say, both be­ing an as­sist to the team.

“Our two ju­niors, Lley­ton Ritchie and Billy Free­man, are also im­prov­ing now they are play­ing with the se­niors, and un­der-16s player Ana Hunter has filled in ad­mirably when re­quired,” Dowl­ing said.

“We cur­rently run two un­der-10 teams on a Thurs­day night and one un­der-12 team on a Satur­day morn­ing.”

The club is hop­ing th­ese play­ers will progress through the un­der-14 and 16 ranks so Isis can field sides.

Jack­son Re­hbein and Bry­den Blair have both made the un­der-12 rep­re­sen­ta­tive side this year.

“A spe­cial men­tion to Reece Blake, our only girl in the un­der-10s,” Dowl­ing said.
