Reakes, Johnson up for challenge
FORMER North Coast cricketer Angela Reakes has been named vice-captain of the Royal Reds for the Power Education Challenge (PEC) starting on Sunday.
In its second season, the Power Education Challenge is a series designed to provide tough competition for State representatives ahead of the Women's National Cricket League and Women's Twenty20 competitions, as well as the Women's Cricket Australia Cup (Second XI) and underage national championships.
The tournament features players from the NSW Breakers and Breakers development squads, and NSW high performance squads.
With the introduction of the ACT into the WNCL, the PEC this season will also include players from the ACT Meteors squad.
The PEC opens with all sides playing two Twenty20 matches this Sunday.
The following weekend (October 3-4) teams will play two 50-over games followed by another 50-over match on October 11.
Another North Coast cricketer, Sammy-Jo Johnson, has also been named for the series.
