Ryan Hansen 100 Reasons to Smile

Ryan's score of 100 off 133 balls helped guide the Tamworth 16s rep team to victory in the North West Junior Cricket Association Under 16s final played at Riverside 1.

Tamworth hit 7/224 off their 50 overs and dismissed Coonabarabran/Quirindi for 99 in 39 overs. Quite a decisive victory.

Ryan also received a trophy for the highest batting aggregate this season in the NWJCA under 16s competition.

Ryan opened the batting with fellow City player Tim Paynter who together put on an opening partnership of 63 runs for the first wicket. Good to hear lads!
