Good News From The Junior Ranks

Its always good to hear our younger players doing well away from the realms of grade cricket. Last Sunday, Daniel Lawrence and Dougie Cederblad were on rep duty for the Tamworth U/16's in a Twenty/20 tournament at Scone. Both lads were in the wickets and Daniel picked up handy runs too. This Sunday they are back at Scone to take on Upper Hunter in a 50 over game. Hamish Batley was another City player to do well at the same carnival, this time in the Tamworth U/14's. The Little City Batley(er) picked up 5 wickets for the carnival at the miserley cost of 12 runs. Not bad in three Twenty20 innings! Batts has also been picked to play in the independent school Possibles v Probables match in Sydney next Tuesday. More of the same form will land him a spot in the NSW team. Good luck Batts.

Tamworth junior cricket teams travelled to Coonabarbran (sounds like a wheelbarrrow load of cheese and bran doesn't it?) and won in all three games. In the u/14's, Ryan Hanson batted well but bolwed even better with 2-9. No wonder he's been bothering older blokes with a good line and length at training. In the U/16's, it was the Simon Bellamy show. In at six, he top scored with 41 in a total of 157 and then took 3-5 from 4 overs in Coona's losing total of 101. Leo Steyn who earlier made a well compiled 18, took the new cherry to great effect (2-17), bowling a nice line during his 8 overs.

Any other tales of City players shining? Drop Lango a line with the details.
