Fitzgerald Cup representatives
Recently two local boys represented the Goulburn Region team to contest the John Fitzgerald Cup at Mildura.
Yarrawonga team members Fraser Bennett and Jack Bassett performed admirably at the competition helping the team finish third out of nine regions.
Against the best players from country Victoria, Fraser won 6 out of 8 matches and Jack won 7 out of 8 matches.
In the group matches Goulburn had good wins against East Gippsland and Northern Mallee but lost to Barwon, the eventual winner.
Playing for 3rd or 4th position, Goulburn 6/36 defeated Central Highlands 0/16.
Both boys enjoyed the format of the competition and other local players are continually reminded to seek selection for the Goulburn Region.
These events were for players 13 and under, and following the events two boys and two boys will be selected to represent Victoria at the Fed Cup in January.
