Lyn set to pad up again today

FORMER Australian captain Lyn Larsen will pad up once more this weekend as women’s cricket lands at Murwillumbah for the first time.

Larsen, from Tuntable Creek near Lismore, was recently inducted into the NSW Cricket Hall of Fame.

She will lead a Northern Rivers selection in an inaugural interdistrict showdown against the Port Macquarie-based Hastings River association at the Murwillumbah Cricket Club.

The Northern Rivers team will also include NSW Breakers star Angela Reakes, of Knockrow, NSW Second XI representative Kara Sutherland and former national opening bowler Karen Brown.

Hastings River will be headed by former NSW Country Under-19 representative Kate Jackson.

A one-day match will be played today and a Twenty20 clash tomorrow.

The match tomorrow will be played in conjunction with trials for the Emerging Breakers program.
