THE cricket season may have come to an end across the country but not in Far North Queensland with the newest batch of rising cricketers cropping up in Dimbulah and further afield.

 

Blast programs will be running in Dimbulah and Cooktown over the next few months, with Dimbulah kicking off on Wednesday 4 May at 3:15pm at the Dimbulah State School Oval and Cooktown on Monday from 9 May at John St Oval. 

 

FNQ Cricket Manager, Trish Spry said engaging with communities such as Dimbulah and Cooktown is important to promote cricket in rural areas

 

“On the back of a bumper season for junior teams, we wanted to keep the momentum going,” she said.

 

“The weather is perfect over the coming months for cricket.”

 

The program is open to boys and girls ages 7 to 14 with modified games being played each week to prepare the participants for the upcoming School Cup Carnival held in Term 3.
