Deniliquin cricketer Brenton Loudon has been selected in the prestigious Northern Rivers Team of the Year.

The hypothetical side brings together the best players from the Bendigo, Murray Valley, Seymour, Shepparton and Goulburn Murray competitions from the 2013/14 seasons.

Loudon had a breakthrough year with the Deniliquin Rhinos in the Murray Valley Cricket Association and attended a Northern Rivers Team of the Year function at Kyabram on Sunday.

Echuca all-rounder Taylor Beard was the only Goulburn Murray cricketer to be named in the squad after picking up a consecutive league medal.

Seymour District Cricket Association led the way with four players picked, while there was three from Cricket Shepparton and two from Bendigo District Cricket Association.
