Northern Selection 2016

Northern Selection (Lismore, Armidale, Maitland/Newcastle) 15 years boys cricket trials were held 7th November at Sawtell. After battling bushfires in a couple of cases to attend the trials there were 21 boys (originally 24 but injuries over the weekend prevented 3 from attending). 
After a very competitive trial the following 6 Lismore Diocese students were selected in a team of 12 to represent this region at the NSW CCC selections in 2 weeks time in Sydney. Congratulations to the following boys on your selection following the trial at Sawtell.
  • Tom Connolly (Mackillop College, Port Macquarie)
  • Caelan Maladay (St John's College, Woodlawn)
  • Simon Pratt (St John's College, Woodlawn)
  • Jarrod Prosper (St Paul's, Kempsey)
  • Jye Woodger (St Paul's, Kempsey)
  • Kaine Parkinson (St Paul's, Kempsey)
Well done to the other 3 other boys from Lismore Diocese who attended the trial. Along with the Lismore boys there were 3 Armidale and 3 Maitland/Newcastle boys selected in the Northern Region team.
Thank you to Cricket Development officers (Jarrod & Martin) from this region, selectors, Tim Kennedy (Armidale selector, manager of Nth team), Tom Salter (selector/manager St Paul's Kempsey) and Robert Ellison (convener).
Special thanks to Coffs Council for their help with the day and to parents to transported the boys to the trial.
I wish the 6 selected students all the best at the CCC trials in Sydney.
