Next step for young crick­eters in new year

South Burnett Times - - SPORT -

The in­au­gu­ral sea­son of T20 cricket at Lyle Vi­dler Oval in Kin­garoy has been a re­sound­ing suc­cess.

There have been up to 75 kids play­ing mod­i­fied games and de­vel­op­ing their cricket skills while danc­ing along to mu­sic and hav­ing fun un­der the lights .

On Fri­day the mas­cot of Bris­bane Heat, Heater, joined the fun with the kids.

The T20 pro­gram runs un­til De­cem­ber 1 when play­ers will then have the op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue play­ing cricket in the stage one and stage two com­pe­ti­tion, also known as Un­der 11s, on Sat­ur­day morn­ings.

The pro­gram will start on Fe­bru­ary 3, 2018, and will be held on Satur­days from 8- 10.30am.

It is de­signed for play­ers who are new to the sport and pads and hel­mets are pro­vided.

Games will con­sist of ap­prox­i­mately 20 overs.

Kin­garoy Ju­nior Cricket Club pres­i­dent Alan Stone said they hoped the T20 play­ers took the next step for them.

“The aim is to en­cour­age kids to come along and play cricket,” he said.

The first come and try game will be held on Sun­day, Novem­ber 26, be­fore the first train­ing on Fe­bru­ary 1, 2018.

The half sea­son will cost $ 50 for play­ers con­tin­u­ing on from T20.
