Love for the game motivates cricketer
WITH gloves in hand Charlotte Love is behind the wickets encouraging her teammates.
On Saturday's she plays for Kingaroy in the South Burnett junior competition but for the past two season she has also had the chance to pull on the colours of Wide Bay to play in the girls school side.
"It is really fun playing with girls that you know and you have been playing with," she said.
"My favourite thing was talking with the girls and being around the girls."
Wide Bay finished in sixth place at the state championships in toowoomba but Charlotte recorded her best performance making 30 runs.
Charlotte was met with tough competition at the championships with strong bowlers and batters to test her wicketkeeping skills.
"It is a bit frightening and scary but you have just got to get your body behind and you will be all right,' she said.
This taste of representative cricket is the start of what Charlotte hopes to be more to come with aspirations to play in the Australian women's team.
Last year she received bowling tips for Holly Ferling who returned home for the start of the junior season and hopes she can one day also play in the Australian side behind the wickets like Alyssa Healy.
