Play­ers needed for Proser­pine team

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


MORE play­ers are needed for se­nior cricket in Proser­pine as they pre­pare to cre­ate a team to take on Bowen in a se­ries of in­ter-town chal­lenges.

Crick­eters from across the Whit­sun­days met up to have a hit and get some prac­tice in Proser­pine on Satur­day but more num­bers are needed for the lo­cal com­pe­ti­tion which set to kick off in a few weeks.

Club pres­i­dent Craig Brown said the lo­cal com­pe­ti­tion will be up and run­ning by Novem­ber and en­cour­aged play­ers of all skill lev­els to come and get in­volved.

“This year we are try­ing to play rep­re­sen­ta­tive games be­fore and af­ter Christ­mas against Bowen. We need more play­ers to show an in­ter­est so that we can sort out or teams for that,” he said.

“We are hop­ing to have home and away games, a full day tour­na­ment and build a friendly rivalry with Bowen.”

The Bowen com­pe­ti­tion fea­tures a 20-over com­pe­ti­tion and Brown said play­ers want­ing to com­pete in Proser­pine’s 40-over for­mat are more than wel­come to get in­volved.

“40-overs a side is a great for­mat for those who want to take cricket a lit­tle bit more se­ri­ous,” he said.

Play­ers are wel­come to come along to the Kelsey Creek Sports Com­plex at 12.30pm this Satur­day.

There is no an­nual fee with play­ers only hav­ing to con­trib­ute $10 for each game they play to cover the ball fees and to help cover the club’s run­ning costs.

All equip­ment is pro­vided if re­quired and there will be drinks, food and other re­fresh­ments avail­able at the club­house through­out the day.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact club pres­i­dent Craig Brown on 4945 1983 or Dale Men­gel on 0410 895 191.
