SEVERAL of the region's fastest-rising cricket stars have been selected for representative duties in January.
Moree's Fred Finlayson, Inverell's Sam Frazier and Narrabri's Clay Hoffman will join Tamworth's Harry Lewington and Blake Scicluna in Central North's under-14 Kookaburra Cup side.
The side will take on some of the state's best players during the annual Cup tournament in Albury from January 7 to 10.
Meanwhile, Tamworth's Callum Henry will have the honour of being Central North's under-16 vice captain during their Bradman Cup campaign.
The leadership nod comes after Henry established himself as City United's first-grade wicket keeper this season.
Henry will be joined by fellow Tamworth young guns, Killian Apen, Ben Livingstone, Jack Hamilton and Landen Price, as well as Gunnedah's Zac Craig and Moree's Ed Montgomery.
The Bradman Cup will run alongside the Kookaburra Cup from January 7 to 10.
