A HANDFUL of Cricket Albury-Wodonga and Wangaratta and District youngsters will take part in a Chris Rogers Cricket Camp at Strath Creek near Seymour next week.

Aaron Grant, Jonty Thomas, Ryan Wandel, Angus Webb, Tom Sparks and Charles Ledger will learn off the former Test opener during the live-in camp.

Former Middlesex opener Tom Scollay will be involved in coaching while leading Border coach Max Shepherd is the program co-ordinator over the three days.

Beeechworth’s Nathan Scott will also assist.

“My involvement came about because I know Chris’s father, John, and one thing led to another,” Shepherd said.

“It’s the first one and I think the live-in camp will have a lot of appeal.

“The ground has a turf wicket with nets and the facility is fantastic.

“The main emphasis is on batting against fast bowling which Chris obviously has a lot of experience in.”
