Inaugural girls’ cricket season ends

Maryborough’s inaugural girls’ cricket competition has inspired a new generation of young players to get out on the field.

Starting in December last year, the Renegades Girls Cricket League Maryborough 2017-18 season wrapped up last week.

Maryborough District Cricket Association Girls Junior Cricket coordinator Paul Rumpff said the competition was a success and that he is “keen” to continue building the girls league.

“It’s been great to have the girls learning the game and the skills, and I’m keen to promote the girls ’ cricket in the future,” he said.

“They’ve got some really good skills. It’s just about getting them here and playing, and hopefully next year we can double our numbers.”
