A star visits Murgon
HOLLY Ferling remembers the thrill of attending her first cricket clinic, which just happened to be run by a future team-mate.
"My first cricket clinic was the Milo In2Cricket when I was seven and the one coach who I remember was Darren Geiger, who ended up being my A grade captain, when I played for Kingaroy," she said.
The Australian representative has come full circle 10 years later, as the 17-year-old facilitated her own clinic at the Murgon Sportsground this week.
The former Kingaroy junior said she never thought she would be conducting her own clinic as one of the rising stars of international women's cricket.
"Definitely not - and it's been a whirlwind year from 2012-2013," she said.
"I didn't think I'd be playing for the Queensland Fire, when I was in high school, let alone for Australia."
"And now I have the opportunity to coach clinics!"
Ferling said clinics such as hers at Murgon were vital to the future of Australian cricket.
