Narooma grandmother proud of boy’s cricket success

PROUD grandmother Heather May of Narooma watched her grandson Bryce Street play on to a victory in The International Under 16 boy’s cricket back in November in Bowral.

The Bradman Foundation hosted the Tri-Nations Twenty/20 Series and the Tri Nation One Day Series with schoolboy teams from Australia, India and the West Indies competing.

In the exciting series, Bryce represented his home state Queensland, while Lachlan Skelly from Crookwell was one of two boys representing NSW as part of this School Sport Australia Cricket initiative.

Heather can attest how exciting it was to be there for the Australian team’s final win in the Twenty/20 series against a strong West Indian team at the University of Wollongong Cricket Ground. That same West Indian team went on to win the One Day Series, captained by 13-year-old Kirstan Kallicharan and played out on Bradman Oval.

Heather is currently in cheering mode again as Bryce is now playing in Adelaide in the Australian Under 17 Cricket Championship representing Queensland.
