Congratulations to all teams who have qualified to participate in the Semi Finals of the Parkes/Forbes u17, u14 and u12 competitions. There should be some very closely contested Semi Finals this weekend.

A special tribute must go to the two Parkes u2 teams in the Renegades and the Scorchers who have fielded quite younger players in the u12 competition, many of whom would have still been eligible to play in the u10 division.

The coaches of the Parkes u12 teams – Kieran Duncan and Peter Yelland have been delighted to note that their players have turned up each week full of enthusiasm to play. Many of the Parkes u12 players have shown considerable improvement since the beginning of the season due to their keen attitude and regular attendance at training and matches.

Under 10s

The u10s season is now complete for Parkes players, with special thanks going to Dylan Morgan, Paul Dunford, Luke Clarke and Cameron Rosser for their unstinting efforts to guide the development of their young players.
