Cricket snippets

SENIOR representative cricket begins this week with Lismore continuing its rivalry with Ballina at Oakes Oval in Lismore on Sunday in the NSW Country Shield draw. The Country Shield is a statewide knockout competition and both teams will be keen to get one up and progress to the next round. Lismore selectors have been hampered by the unavailability of several experienced senior players, along with injuries to young guns Jake Nind and Sam Reading, and will field a new-look team. They will rely heavily on the enthusiasm and confidence of much of their successful under-19 team from last season with the experience of Luke Cleaver and Brad Walker leading the way.

Tweed are drawn to play Casino in the Country Cup on the 4th November.

 

 

LISMORE District junior cricket commences this weekend with teams competing over four age groups. The first ball of the season will be delivered this weekend in both the under 14 and 16 competitions while the under 10 and 12 ages will commence the following Saturday. Under 16's play on Lismore's turf wickets of a Friday afternoon with under 10's, 12's and 14's playing the traditional Saturday morning cricket.

Lismore also fields representative under 12, 14 and 16 teams in the FNC competition for youngsters aspiring to follow in Adam Gichrist's footsteps.

The LDJCA also runs the popular Cricket Australia "Milo in2" cricket program for children aged from five to eight. This is a fun, skills-based program held at 5pm on Wednesday afternoons at Oakes Oval and will start next Wednesday 17th October. Included in the registration is a kit that includes a shirt, hat, bat and backpack. Enquiries at Recycled Sports on Keen Street, Lismore.
