Connor Langley, Seb Monahan and Rhys Varcoe enjoyed yesterday’s clinic.

Goulburn Murray Cricket enjoyed a good turnout at its inaugural Future Stars Cricket Camp in Rochester yesterday.

Former Campaspe and Bendigo cricket association legend Barry Findlay, renowned Shepparton coach Brendan Kenna and Kyabram Cricket Club life member Brad Mueller were the head coaches on the day.

‘‘It went very well,’’ GMC chairman Jon Varcoe said.

‘‘We had 32 boys attend and they all had a good day.

‘‘There was batting, bowling, fielding and some video analysis.

‘‘All the kids who were there got something out of it.’’

Varcoe said the association would look at improving the camp for next year, making it ‘‘bigger and better’’.

The camp was received pretty well by the clubs, Varcoe said, but he hoped to improve the communication of the camp.

‘‘The goal behind it was to get to all the kids in our association to get that sort of coaching, to get that same opportunity to improve their game,’’ he said.

‘‘We’re trying to improve junior cricket across the board, which will improve the standard in the long term.

‘‘This goes hand-in-hand with all our junior coaches having to be level one accredited.’’

Varcoe thanked Rochester United and Rochester Tigers cricket clubs for getting behind it and providing their facilities.
