New skills at the crease

CRICKET: The new season is an opportunity for junior cricketers to improve their skills and develop as players.

Many are facing new challenges this season as they step into the next stage and president of the Kingaroy junior cricket club, Cameron Watson said it is exciting to see.

"A lot of our kids came up from first stage last season so it is into the next step and it is starting to get more like cricket so it will be interesting to watch them learn, grow and become better cricketers,” he said.

Nanango and Murgon players have teamed up in the stage two competition to create a four team competition against the three Kingaroy teams.

Belinda Scherger is playing her second season for Nanango and is looking forward to spending time scoring runs and behind the wicket as keeper this season.

"It is more about having fit and being fun than being competitive for me. two seasons I get to have fun, met to new people travel and remain fit,” she said.

Fellow Nanango team mate Clancy Doyle is looking forward to honing his skills.

"I'm looking forward to the fun that we have and it is good training if we want to be world famous cricketers,” he said.
