The junior cricket season begins this weekend but there is still time for any interested players to sign up.

The local competition has helped developed a host of big name representative players and that has continued in recent times with a number of Dubbo youngsters taking part in tournaments near and far.

Dubbo District Junior Cricket Association president Greg Rummans is anticipating another big and busy season but said any interested players can still link up with a team.

“There’s still a few teams that need a couple of players but most clubs could fit someone in somewhere,” he said.

“Everything is looking alright and all age groups seem to be going well.”

Actions from the under-12s through to the under-16s begins this weekend while younger players will get the chance to find out what their season will be like next Thursday when a free Come and Try Day is held for under-9s and Mile ages.

“It’s been really good, we had 70-odd registered last year and most weeks there was about 60 kids down there,” Rummans said of the T20 Blast.

“We’ll probably have good numbers again.”

There is expected to be talent spread through all the age groups with local teams also playing sides in Wellington and Narromine this summer.

Anyone interested in signing up can visit the playcricket.com.au website where there are options to register or contact specific clubs.
