The form team in Far North Coast LJ Hooker League cricket

Angus Callan, Lennox Head

HAS to get a spot at opening bat after making four consecutive half centuries in what has been a breakout season for the 17-year-old.

Caleb Ziebell, Cudgen

ONE of the cleanest hitters of the ball in the competition and just as skilled with his bowling ability.

Sam Martin, Marist Brothers

FIVE straight half centuries earns him the popular No 3 spot with plenty of other players in the mix to bat there.

Sam Irvine, Casino RSM Cavaliers

STILL one of the most consistent players and it would be hard not to give the former NSW Country representative a place in the team.

Steve Mison, Alstonville

MAKES his way into the team as the leading run-scorer in the competiton with 469 runs and six half centuries.

Adam Rogers, Pottsville

BUMPS teammate Aaron Laycock out of the side with Rogers taking a middle order batting position and wicket keeping duties

Ben Carruthers, Ballina Bears

IN a purple patch of form this season and has been Ballina Bears most consistent player with 394 runs and 17 wickets

Ryan McCloy, Pottsville

COMES into the side as a bowling all-rounder but can also bat after a determined 50 against Alstonville at the weekend.

Anthony Kershler, Cudgen

THE new spin king in the competition and has already taken 16 wickets with his left-arm orthodox bowling.

Jason Caught, Alstonville

BOWLING more overs this season after a back injury slowed him down in recent years and is the equal leading wicket taker in the competition with Carruthers.

James Julius, Cudgen

TAKEN 15 wickets this season for Cudgen and has been rock solid for the defending premiers for a number of years now.

Luke Hamilton (12th man), Tintenbar-East Ballina

HARD to leave out of the team after already scoring two tons this season and could easily come into the side as an all-rounder in the middle order.

There is games this weekend and next before the competition has a break over Christmas.
