Young cricketers prepare to sign on

TOMORROW at Slade Park will be the third chance for budding junior cricketers to sign on for the 2014-2015 season.

Nic Stephens is a left-arm paceman and would like to be like Australian paceman Mitchell Johnson.

"Mitch has come back well from a bowling drought to be the main bowler for the team," Nic said.

Nic will be one of many boys and girls lining up for the start of junior cricket on Saturday.

He has played since his first season of In2Cricket at the age of six and can't wait to get a bat or ball in hand.

"I want to be a bowler who can bat," he said.

Luke Radford is 13 and eyeing off his sixth season and second in the under-15 age group.

"Club games were fun last season; my best was 24 with the bat and 3-20 with ball."

His younger brother Scott is preparing for a third season in Warwick juniors.

Boys and girls are welcome to play in all age groups with In2 Cricket (U8) on a Wednesday afternoon started October 15.

All three age group competitions start this Saturday with games to be finished by 11am each week.

Registrations needed this week and fees this month.

Season costs are $75 for the season for In2Cricket and $100 in older age groups. A family discount applies for two or more children.

More information from age group contacts or the Warwick Cricket Association Facebook page.
