|Under 13s Rising Star Cameron |
McMaster with coach Adrian Eiszele.
With that in mind, the decision was made to have an Under 13 and Under 14 side this season. Both sides trained together for the whole season and we had seven new players in our regular side - a great effort considering we were struggling with numbers early on.
The Under 13s were coached by club legend Adrian Eiszele. He was well supported by Craig McMaster who helped with every game and was fantastic. This was a young side, with seven-year-old Bobby Nossiter making his debut and being the youngest player this season Captain Cameron McMaster led from the front in every game and showed awesome leadership beyond his years. Jack Morgan made the first 50 of his career - a great sign for the future. Each player improved as the season went on, reaching personal milestones.

Rising Star runner-up
Both teams won their final match of the season and had good years. Success should not be judged purely on wins and losses. It is a success if the kids improve in every game and continue playing cricket and having fun.

New Norfolk also took part in T20 Blast with Gretna this season and that was a success. Thanks to Liahm O'Brien and Tom Murray for helping out every week and Wade Gleeson from Gretna and his helpers. It was great to see so many young kids having fun.
Thanks to all helpers during the year and a big thanks to Jamie Hill for everything he has done for the Red Caps. We look forward to another season for the juniors next summer and seeing more kids playing cricket.
