Meet eight-year-old Daniel. He’s the first Woolworths Cricket Blaster to sign up for the upcoming summer of cricket in Western Australia.This summer will be the junior blaster’s first season of cricket with South Mandurah Junior Cricket Club and he can’t wait for the action to begin.
His mum Rebecca said he was very keen to get involved in the sport this summer.
“I registered Daniel for cricket this year because he was very keen to play the game and I see the sport as a healthy outdoor activity for my son to participate in over the summer,” she said.
Daniel is counting down to the day he gets to meet his new cricket friends.
“I will play a new sport I haven’t tried before and will meet lots of new friends, which I’m really excited about,” he said.
“I played lots of cricket last Christmas with my cousins and grandad and I love having a go at batting, it’s my favourite.
“I like having fun and I like that I get a turn at everything with cricket, including batting, bowling and fielding.
“Cam Green is my favourite player, he is good at everything and I will definitely be watching the Perth Scorchers team this year.”
Rebecca said cricket will help her son in so many ways on and off the field.
“I always encourage my son to try new things and whatever sport he shows an interest in I want him to pursue,” she said.
“It’s good healthy fun, playing in the fresh air and cricket will improve his hand-eye co-ordination and will introduce him to a different circle of friends.
“It was super easy to register on the play.cricket.com.au website which directs you to a local club and South Mandurah CC have been so helpful and happily answered all our questions.”
