Best under 21s off to FNQ championships
MAREEBA Cricket’s best under 21’s players Jarod France, Tyson Brown and Ben Jones have been selected to represent the Far North this weekend in the North Queensland Country Cricket Championships.
After hours of training alongside coaching development officer Gary Toshach, the team will compete in a 20/20 plus 50 over game in Cairns against a team from Mackay.
Three weeks later, they will head down to enemy territory to compete again to determine who will become the North Queens-land Champions.
If successful, they will take on the southern Queensland team to crown the Queensland Country Champions who will play against the other states.
“Each of these boys have been training since the end of July, into early August in an effort to make the team,” Toshach said.
Club president Irene Roy will also be travelling down alongside the men as a scorer and Mareeba Cricket second grade captain Brendan Payne will heading down as the manager.
