Young players batting for a strong junior cricket season

IT FELT as if someone had flicked the switch on summer when Stanthorpe's young cricketers turned up for the first taste of the game yesterday.

Stanthorpe Junior Cricket secretary Melinda Toms said she was pleased with the turnout.

"We had an excellent response," Toms said.

While yesterday was a "come and try" scenario for the club, the players were enthusiastic and welcomed the onset of cricket season.

"We like to have the first weekend as a come and try weekend," Toms said.

She said anyone who wasn't able to make it on the day was still welcome to sign up.

Andrew Burgess and Noah Mackenzie, who had both played cricket before, said they were looking forward to taking to the field with the juniors each week.

Juniors will take place at the McGlew St complex each Saturday starting at 8.30am, while the Milo In2Cricket players begin at 9am.
