Mooroopna captain Brenton Campbell was one of the three Cricket Shepparton players picked in the Northern Rivers Team of the Year.

Three of Cricket Shepparton’s premier players have been selected in the prestigious Northern Rivers Team of the Year.

Mooroopna captain Brenton Campbell and young Central Park-St Brendan’s star Tyler Larkin were rewarded for standout 2013-14 seasons.

Numurkah skipper Mark Brown was picked as 12th man.

Larkin took all before him during the Tigers’ run to a first Haisman Shield in three seasons.

He finished runner-up in the Lightfoot Medal to Old Students’ Nick Breslin, won the Tigers’ best-and-fairest award and took out Cricket Shepparton’s under-23 Cricketer of the Year award.

Campbell scored 562 runs at average of 51 and claimed 23 wickets at 19 as Mooroopna eventually fell to the Tigers in the preliminary final.

Brown could not claim consecutive Lightfoot Medals, finishing third in the count, but enjoyed a season almost as impressive.

Brown smashed two centuries on his way to 594 runs at an average of 54 as his Blues were knocked out of the finals by a rampant Northerners.

Strathmerton star Luke Carter added another accolade to his legendary Murray Valley Cricket career by being named captain of the side.

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 the remaining two were from Bendigo District Cricket Association.

A Northern Rivers Team of the Year function will be held at Kyabram Club on Sunday from 12.30pm.
