Jaydn, the stump destroyer


CRICKET Albury-Wodonga youngster Jaydn Chalmers, above, has left a lasting impression on North East Country Week.

As well as terrorising rival batsmen in his team’s two wins, the Tallangatta opening bowler managed to snap a stump against Benalla.

“It had the boys talking,” coach Leo Glass said of the incident yesterday.

The talented CAW under-15 team has been doing more than talking over the past two days — it has notched up wins against Benalla and CAW Country to book a berth in Friday’s final.

It could face its biggest test today — against Wangaratta in its final round-robin match.

CAW struggled to make 101 against CAW Country at Urana Road Oval yesterday but hit back strongly with the ball, thanks to three run-outs and some fine bowling from Hayden Wells (2-7) and Avery Weilandt (3-14).

“The boys bowled and fielded really well,” Glass said.

“They aren’t allowed to bowl short, they have to pitch it up.”
