Bangalow Public School has been bowled over by the talent of two of its year-six students. Sebastian Gleeson-Power (left) and Lachlan Sproul (right) have both been selected to represent the north coast region in cricket in an upcoming event.

The boys, who are both talented bowlers, have impressive stats behind them – Sebastian’s best-ever bowling day produced five wickets in a maiden over at a club match and Lachlan once bowled four for seven off eight overs at the North Coast Trials.

The local lads will leave this weekend with their families to travel to Armidale. The boys will face teams from across NSW when they take part in the upcoming Primary Schools Sports Association (PSSA) State Cricket Carnival.

The boys, who both currently play for the Bangalow Cricket Club as their home team, have had two training sessions in Lismore with the other members of the squad, and will compete in the PSSA carnival in Armidale next week.
