Rising stars of cricket recognised

CRICKET clearly comes naturally to under-13 Emerald Brothers junior Donal Whyte.

So when he wiped the floor clean with not one, but five, awards at Brothers annual presentation night at the weekend, it was a fitting end to a star-studded season for the youngster.

Whyte won his side’s Best Fielder award, a special achievement award for taking three wickets in four balls and making Central Queensland selection, a progression award for competitors playing up age groups and the 2010-11 Player of the Year award.

Also raking in the accolades was Rhys Adams who took home the under-16’s Best Bowler and Best Fielder honours, as well as the special achievement award for his stunning five-wicket haul in a single innings.

Both Whyte and Adams achieved this throughout a cricket season troubled by its fair share of floodwater-covered playing pitches.

With grounds now well on the mend around the Central Highlands, the timing could not be more perfect as Brothers send out the call for new season registrations.

Club secretary Lyn Brown said numbers were steadily rising with an outlook for three age divisions again this year.

No experience is necessary but a good attitude and strong desire to learn is. All juniors aged nine to 17 years are encouraged to apply. For more information phone Peter King 0439 769 323, or email the secretary to request a registration form lyn.brown@annemurray.com.au.
