$300 boost for Ballina District Junior Cricket Association

BALLINA'S junior cricketers have received a welcome financial boost ahead of the forthcoming season.

Officials with the Sydney Sixers Big Bash League club recently presented $300 to the Ballina District Junior Cricket Association (BDJCA).

The money will support the BDJCA's developing Big Bash competition, which aims to provide players with fun competition experience.

Association president Craig Jenkins said the money, which was handed over at the town's recent T20 Blast carnival, was an "incredible" help.

"We are delighted with this," Jenkins said.

"It is great to know that Cricket New South Wales and the Sydney Sixers are happy to support the local junior association.

"The support they offer is incredible.

"Hopefully it will allow us to grow even further."

Meanwhile, cricket clubs across the region still have time to register for valuable cash funding.

The Cricket NSW Facilities Grants Program provides financial support for projects promoting the sport.

Applications for the latest round of funding close on Monday, September 30.
