The scene is set for the best youngsters from throughout the region to showcase their talents at the 2021 Cricket NSW Country Youth Championships at Maitland next week.

Local under-13 outfits Newcastle Blasters, Lake Mac Attack and Hunter Valley Thoroughbreds will lock horns with Central Coast, Northern Inland Bolters, Far North Coast, Mid-North Coast and North Coast at various grounds across the LGA including Thornton Oval, Maitland Park and Coronation Oval.

To be contested from Monday 20 December to Wednesday 22 December, it’s the third instalment of the now annual event, which features three age divisions each comprising of two conferences, the Sixers (under-13 male, under-14 male, under-15 male) and the Thunder (under-13 male, under-14 male, under-15 male).

The Sixers under-13 carnival will take place at Maitland, with the under-14s and under-15s venturing to Grafton and surrounds.

The Dubbo region, which includes Narromine and Wellington, is scheduled to stage the Thunder U13, U14 and U15 conferences.

In total, 48 teams will vie for the honours.

“The Cricket NSW Country Youth Championships represent a chance for players to begin their journey into elite cricket,” NSW Pathways manager Nic Bills said.

“It is an exciting opportunity for the next generation to test their skills against the best of the best in their respective age brackets.

“This is the entry point for many of our future stars into our elite pathways.
