What have been your achievements so far?

After my first season of cricket in 2015 and 2016, I received my team’s batting award and I was selected to participate in the North Coast Cricket Council Academy (NCCCA now known as the North Coast Darren Lehmann Cricket Academy) and made the Under 14 Nambucca/Bellingen Junior Cricket Association team.

Why did you apply for the McDonald’s Junior Grants Program?

My recent achievements involves various training and game days spread between Lismore, Grafton, Maclean and Macksville. I will be needing help with travel costs and some gear.

How will the McDonald’s Junior Grants Program help you?

If successful in applying for a grant, this money will go towards travel expenses associated with attending various training days and games and new cricket gear as I am growing out of my pads and gloves already. I still wear my cousins cricket whites (pants) that he used when he played under12’s junior cricket, he is now 18.
