FOUR lively Crookwell cricket lads have had the opportunity over the past winter months to be included in the Under 14’s Cricket Emerging Blues Talented Players Program.
The program, run by Cricket NSW, has been providing Brendan Fenton, Sam Skelly, Ollie Anable and James Carter with ongoing, high level coaching and training as they were selected along with other peers from associations in the Southern Zone.
The last training run was at the famous training nets at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) Headquarters and this proved to be a real eye opener for the boys.
The next is at the Sir Donald Bradman Oval in Bowral where the boys will enjoy a tour of the museum after their training run.
Spokesperson for the boys and the Crookwell Junior Cricket Club, Kip Skelly said: “I wish to sincerely thank John Hanley, Scott Stephenson and Jessie Croke from the Upper Lachlan Shire Council for the way they upkeep and present the first class fields and practice nets at Crookwell.
“These grounds and facilities are the envy of many other cricket clubs.
“Their attention and efforts should be noted and rewarded,” Kip said.
Young Crookwell cricketers who aspire to the game should be encouraged to join this fantastic junior club and take the game up.
The Crookwell Junior Cricket Club appreciates all the support from parents and players and will continue to provide training and encouragement to all their members.
They all look forward to another fantastic season of cricket.
