Fremantle District Cricket Club hosted the sixth Under 14 SunSmart "Terry Alderman" Zone Carnival at the picturesque Stevens Reserve last week.
The four Metropolitan Zones participated, playing against each other in a competitive environment with the players displaying some excellent cricket talent.
The carnival provides players an opportunity to compete against the best players of their age group. Good performances during this week assist in selecting the participants for the 'Capture the Warrior ' program, where the players will participate in a skill and game experience program designed to best develop them as players for the future with the assistance of WA's best specialist coaches.
The results from the three day carnival with better individual performances are listed below.
The South West Zone (players from Rockingham-Mandurah, Fremantle, Claremont-Nedlands and Melville District Cricket Clubs) won three games .The North East Zone and North West Zone won 2 games while the South East Zone failed to win any of their games.
A special thanks to the Umpires who did a great job over the three days, Parents and Families of players who assisted with the smooth running of the carnival and Fremantle District Cricket Club.
