Fire finds spark for season
FORMER Warwick junior Delissa Kimmince and Kingaroy quick Holly Ferling will provide the Konica Minolta Queensland Fire with speed to burn in the 2012-13 cricket season.
The 16-year-old Ferling will join fellow teen quick Sammy-Jo Johnson as one of the new additions to the Fire squad, while 23-year-old Kimmince makes her return after playing club cricket last summer for Beenleigh/Logan.
Kimmince, who played 10 ODIs for the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars in 2008 and 2009, took much of 2010 off from cricket for career reasons, but is now in a position to re-join the Fire squad.
Last year, she played county cricket in England, where her best performances were 94 with the bat and 5-12 off seven overs with the ball.
She said her first focus was to play well for the Fire.
"I am hopeful of making the Australian team again," Kimmince said.
Ferling was a Fire rookie player last summer and toured New Zealand with the Commonwealth Bank Shooting Stars U-21 side. Johnson joined the Fire from Lismore last season.
