Strong performances by ACA members taking part in the ACA Premier Cricket Program have highlighted the start of the club cricket season, shedding light on the importance of keeping experienced players in the game.
The program showed early success with Toombull's Brendan Nash, posting an unbeaten 123 in round two of the Brisbane Premier competition.
In the same innings, teammate Chris Lynn went large with 19 sixes on his way to 209.
Toombull CC took to Twitter, thanking the ACA Premier Cricket Program following Nash's stellar start to the season.
Redland's Ryan LeLoux also made an early impact on the season up north, snaring 6/33 (8) against Wynnum Manly in the opening round.
In Sydney's Grade competition, 47-year-old Anthony Kershler showed once again that age is no barrier after claiming 5/18 (10) against 2014/15 premiers, Manly Warringah.
The ACA Premier Cricket Program, which has received $1million in funding from the current male playing group in its first year, has 101 ACA Members participating across 85 Australian Premier Cricket clubs - 42 of which were not in playing or coaching roles with their club last season.
