Next step for young cricketers in new year

CRICKET: The inaugural season of T20 cricket at Lyle Vidler Over in Kingaroy has been a resounding success.

There have been up to 75 kids playing modified games and developing their cricket skills while dancing along to music and having fun under the lights .

On Friday the mascot of Brisbane Heat, Heater, joined in on the fun with the kids.

The T20 program runs until December 1 when players will then have the opportunity to continue playing cricket in the stage one and stage two competition, also known as Under 11's, on Saturday mornings.

The program will start on February 3, 2018 and will be held on Saturday mornings from 8am to 10.30am.

It is designed for players who are new to the sport and pads and helmets are provided.

Games will consist of approximately 20 overs.

President of Kingaroy Junior Cricket Club said they hope the T20 players take the next step for them.

"The aim is to encourage kids to come along and play cricket,” he said.

The first come and try game will be held on Sunday, November 26 before the first training on February 1, 2018.

The half season will cost $50 for players continuing on from T20.
