Junior cricket wrap

WITH New Norfolk, Molesworth and Gretna now all having junior cricket teams, and in2CRICKET being run at the Glenora School and Boyer Oval, the sport has a very bright future here in the Valley and Highlands. It is pleasing to see so many young boys and girls playing this great game.

We say a big well done to Alex Blair, Josh Farrow, Jacksyn Mann, Jack Stevenson and Ryan Banks-Smith who were selected in the Emerging Tigers squads, and also to Hannah Mann who was selected for the Southern Storm squad.

Another boy on his way up in cricket is Jordan Banks-Smith who was this season selected to represent Tasmania in the Under 17s carnival held in Hobart. Well done Jordy, you may well become the first player from the Valley to play for the Tasmanian Tigers.

While on the subject of juniors, a score that must not go unnoticed was when Gretna Under 13s made 1-235 off 20 overs at the Glenora School against Molesworth Green. In reply Molesworth made 3-129 off 20 overs! That's 364 runs off 40 overs - not a bad effort from the Under 13s!
