Whitsunday Times - - SPORT - JU­NIOR CRICKET

WITH the footy sea­son now over it is time to bring out the bat and ball for the 2013/14 Proser­pine ju­nior cricket sea­son.

Ju­nior cricket will re­turn to the Kelsey Creek sports ground this Fri­day af­ter­noon for more Twenty20 ac­tion from 4pm.

The Proser­pine Ju­nior Cricket Club will have a mixed pro­gram for the up-com­ing sea­son.

Some of the high­lights will in­clude the in­ter-town chal­lenge games against Bowen, Fri­day af­ter­noon Twenty20 games and a trial two-day game for­mat.

The club is hop­ing to run games for un­der-10s, un­der 12s, un­der-14s and un­der 16s.

Club pres­i­dent Brett Hansen said it was re­ward­ing see­ing young play­ers im­prove their skills through­out the sea­son and chal­lenge their Bowen ri­vals.

“This sea­son we hope to de­velop our lo­cal com­pe­ti­tion a lit­tle more and send the chal­lenge out to not only Bowen but pos­si­bly one of the north­ern Mackay clubs,” he said.

The reg­is­tra­tion fee for ju­nior cricket is $85 which in­cludes a shirt and cap.

The Proser­pine Cricket Club will again run the Have A Go and Have A Game mini cricket games.

The reg­is­tra­tion fee for the Have a Go and Have A Game cricket is $80 which in­cludes a back­pack filled with a bat, ball, shirt, cap and other ac­ces­sories.
