LAST Saturday, the Kingsmead Mynahs had trials at Kingsmead to select a Mynahs side to play a series of matches against club and senior teams. This is an opportunity given to players who did not get the nod for the KZN Schools side and allows those who were on the fringe of selection to get a taste of competitive cricket at a tough level. Clubs and schools sent players to the trials and when all had been counted, a respectable 60 boys had turned out. A Kingsmead Mynahs Schools Invitation team was selected to play a series of matches in and around Durban, plus Pietermaritzburg. Selectors on the day were Colin Chater (president Kingsmead Mynahs), Philip Lanz (KZN Schools selector), Richard Moolman (1st team cricket coach), John Arthur (former Mynahs president and current committee member) and Allan Norton (KZN Schools selector). Mynahs Team Tyron Koen (Westville), James Tedder (Kearsney), Cameron Flowers (Glenwood), Bryce Tullis (College), Craig Schlemmer (Westville), Tim Louw (Glenwood), Josh Henry (Glenwood), Nathan Gounder (DHS), Aman Kara (Thomas More), Kameeran Naicker (Kloof High School), Denham Shepstone (College), Jason Petzer (Thomas More), James Martin (College) Players on standby if there is an injury or someone pulls out: Bradley Wheal (Clifton), Jason Gulliver (Glenwood) and Liam Laird (Clifton).
