After coaching our Ian Healy Cup Sunshine Coast side during last season, Scorchers batsman Jack Whisker stepped up to take our U12 QJC side this season. Implementing new structures aimed at providing development opportunities for all of our players at U12 & U13 levels, Jack created a great environment for all players to learn and explore without fear of failure. This was most evident in the performance of our young skipper Zac Moore. Zac finished as the leading run-scorer for our U12s but it was his growth as a leader, particularly with his field placements and bowling rotations that was most impressive. Crafty off-spin bowler Eli Pearce finished as the leading wicket-taker for this side repeating the same feat he accomplished under Jack in the Sunshine Coast Ian Healy Cup side last year.
All these boys should be super proud of their efforts with many experiencing their first week-long carnival during a hot week at Gympie. Great work lads – lessons learnt this year will hold you in good stead in our future years.
