Leongatha juniors win championship

LEONGATHA and District Cricket Association’s U/14 Junior Country Week team took out the championship last week.

Associations from all over Gippsland journeyed to play in the Gippsland Cricket Championships conducted by the Leongatha and District Cricket Association.

The six cricket Associations’ Under 15 and Under 14 teams played five games during the week against each other.

At the end of the successfully, organised week there were presentations of individual trophies and medallions to the teams announced Champions. There was also the announcement of the All Gippsland Team in both divisions.

The Under 15 competition was conducted upon the five turf wickets. It was a great credit to our local clubs and curators that many high scoring games were played and that the talented batsmen had a chance to show their skills.

Two players had exceptional batting efforts in making two hundreds each.

It was no surprise they finished top two in the batting aggregate with local Poowong Loch player Aaron Bardwell finishing second with 356 runs for the week.

The winner though was Blair Cymo from the Central Gippsland Association with a sensational 402 runs. Both players look destined for higher honours.

The bowling aggregate award had two players from Traralgon tied with an impressive 10 wickets each for the week. Best local performer with the ball for the Leongatha association was Rohan Slade from Glen Alvie who had seven wickets for the week.

Played on the synthetic wickets in 40 over games was the Under 14 competition.

Again, there were plenty of runs made with the standout performance being one of the local players from Phillip Island.

Keith Robinson made 273 runs for the week with two top scores of 86 and 82.

Darcy Hume from the Leongatha Town club won the Bowling aggregate award with eight wickets, sharing it with Liam McDonald from Warragul.

Both local teams had fantastic weeks with the Under 14 team achieving the ultimate of going through undefeated for the week and being announced the Champion team of Gippsland.
