Local cricketer Todd Marshall is making a name for himself around the region.
Deniliquin teenager Todd Marshall is making a name for himself in representative cricket, playing for the Riverina in two squads over the next fortnight.
The Year 9 Deniliquin High School student (pictured) is currently in Nowra, playing for the region’s under-16 squad in the Bradman Cup.
Play started yesterday, and if Marshall’s team makes it to the grand final, he will play until Thursday.
In its first game, against Southern, the Riverina won the toss and chose to bat first.
After making a modest total of 145, Marshall’s boys were unable to hold on for the win, with Southern sneaking home with four wickets to spare.
Riverina plays Central Coast today and Central Northern tomorrow.
Next week, it’s off to Taree for Marshall where he will play with the under-14 side as vice captain.
Play starts on Monday, and again will go until Thursday for the grand finalists.
Marshall’s mother, Mary Marshall, believes it’s a rare thing for a player to be selected for two squads.
Marshall originally went to the under-16 tryouts just to gain experience with older players – but never expected to be selected.
The spin bowler also played for the under-14 Riverina side last year, and said they “went alright”.
Just playing for the Riverina won’t satisfy Marshall, though – he wants to play for Australia someday.
The young cricketer also plays in the Deniliquin District Cricket Association competition, for the Town under-16 side.
