The 16 year-old has been selected to compete at the NSW Bradman Cup Carnival representing the Riverina Cricket Zone.

Henery, a right hand opening bat, impressed Riverina selectors at the Colston/Scammell Shield held in Albury.

He was one of five Southern Riverina boys selected.

Also selected from the Southern Riverina were Joel Murphy, Bowen Smith, Todd Marshall and Jake Toll.

Northern Riverina’s Tom Byrnes and Joe Oliver, Murrumbidgee’s Corey Graham, Matt Peruzzi, Connor Matheson and Toby Polkinghorne and Murray’s Lachlan Lane will also vie for a spot in the squad.

Matheson will captain the side and Murphy will vice captain.

Berrigan’s David Nichols will coach the side, with Wagga’s Eric Koetz his assistant.

Games will be played from Monday, January 7 to Wednesday, January 9. A grand final is to be played on Thursday, January 10 at the Hayden Drexel Oval.

Riverina will kick off their Bradman Cup campaign against Southern Zone on the first day of play, at the Hayden Drexel Oval.

On day two they will play Central Coast at Berry Sports Complex before the final game on the Wednesday against Central Northern at Nowra Showground.

Scores will be updated as the games are played on the Riverina Twitter account, @RiverinaCricket.
