Bunbury's young cricket stars visit home

CRICKET: Bunbury’s young cricketers gained some valuable advice from local stars Sam Whiteman and Chloe Piparo during a visit on Monday and Tuesday.

The pair visited schools across the region including Dalyellup College, Eaton Primary School and Kingston Primary School.

At Dalyellup College they addressed Year 11 students who are involved in the school’s cricket program.

The young stars talked about their pathway from Bunbury to state cricket.

Starting out at Colts Cricket Club, Whiteman is now a wicket-keeper for the Rookie Warriors state team.

Piparo began her career playing for the Bunbury Cathedral Grammar cric-ket team and is now an all-rounder for the Western Fury women’s team.

The visit was part of the Western Australia Cricket Association’s regional awareness and recruitment campaign.

The campaign provides young cricket players in regional areas the opportunity to get up close with their cricket heroes.
