Kids have a blast with Qld cricket stars

FIFTY Boyne Tannum primary schools area students had a day to remember on August 29, playing cricket under the guidance of Queensland Bulls and Brisbane Heat stars Peter Forrest, Chris Lynn and Cameron Gannon.

In town for the Commonwealth Bank Central Queensland tour, the three stars took the time to run a kids' Milo Blast T20 day, helping the youngsters with technique and having fun all the way through.

For the kids, it was a day that could keep them in the game for years to come, and for the three players, a rare trip into regional areas where they receive a lot of love.

"Country cricket has always been a massive thing for Queensland cricket, so hopefully we can get it back to where it was," Gannon said.

"We don't get up here too often, so we like it when we do."

Despite being injured, Lynn was still hands-on with the kids from St Francis, Tannum Sands Primary and Boyne Island Primary.

Not letting his arm prevent him helping out, Lynn said some of the kids might become a Bulls or Heat player in the future.

"I still get involved, just communication with the kids and showing them how to do things," Lynn said.

"Get on and sign-up at playcricket.com.au, and have a good time in the sport."
