New Partnership With Queensland Cricket Starts Strong
Bulls Masters have continued to open up more opportunities to develop and foster the game of cricket throughout Queensland, and particularly in regional areas of the state through it's recent partnership with Queensland Cricket.
The most recent example of this was in Townsville this week where the Bulls Masters were able to join forces with the Queensland Cricket coaching staff in North Queensland to run a three-day long talent clinic for young representative or emerging players in and around the Townsville area.
Bulls Masters sent up former Australian T20 player, Nathan Reardon and former Queensland Bulls quick, Brendan Creevey to mentor the kids alongside the Queensland Cricket regional coaching and development staff to provide a clinic that teaches the youngsters advanced cricket skills to develop their game.
Reardon, who grew up in Chinchilla before going on to play many seasons of first class cricket for the Queensland Bulls and the Brisbane Heat says that it's crucial to pass on the process that worked for him, and helped him to succeed.
"It's so important at this young age to just really strip it back and get back to basics, I mean these kids watch cricket on TV, and they probably expect to go out and do it, but what they don't realise is that the guys they're watching on TV spent many, many years practicing the basics before reaching the elite level."
The North Queensland talent clinics were sponsored by Chemist Warehouse who are a big supporter of the Bulls Masters and their vision for cricket in Regional Queensland.
