GALLERY: Wickets fall on junior cricket game day
THE season opener for the North Burnett’s junior cricket went off to a red hot start on Saturday October 26.
Mundubbera and Gayndah fielded teams for their regions on Saturday October 26, with pleasant conditions accompanying the day.
Taking place at the Mundubbera State School, three cricket games for ages 5–16 were played in the season-opener.
Mundubbera Junior Cricket Association secretary Julie Pashley said she was anticipating a stronger turnout for the games on Saturday.
“We were expecting anywhere between the 30 and 35 mark for kids overall,” Mrs Pashley said.
Monto unfortunately couldn’t field a team for the season opener, but is in high spirits for the next round of games.
Regardless of this, Gayndah Junior Cricket president Russel Baker was happy with the way the day turned out.
“We were lucky enough to field three games today, but once Monto joins we’ll be looking good,” Mr Baker said.
For the senior game, Gayndah had a convincing win over home team of Mundubbera.
Gayndah scored 223 in the first innings, with Mundubbera all out for 58.
The next game day will be held in Gayndah on November 9.
