HARD work and determination is what it takes to achieve your sporting goals and that’s exactly what Blake Mayne has been doing. The Gretna Under 16s all-rounder has been attending the trials for the Emerging Tigers program and has now been named in the Southern Storm Under 15s team that will play in the Commonwealth Bank Intrastate Cup in January.
Mayne, 15, will travel from his home town of Bothwell to Devonport on the North West Coast where he and the team will play against other teams from around Tasmania.
The talented cricketer has been in good form with Gretna this season. A top score of 44 runs with the bat and best figures of 3 for 7 off five overs with the ball puts Mayne in good stead for his upcoming representative matches.
Well done Blake. You have worked hard for your spot in the team and I’m sure your mum Kristy, dad Mathew and brothers Caleb, Bailey and Riley will all be proudly cheering you on.
