Six talented cricket teams travelled long distances to compete this week on the world famous oval where a young Don Bradman honed his cricket skills as a 14yr old. Now in its 20th year, the Bradman Foundation proudly hosted the Under 14 Invitational Carnival again this year, which rounded off today on Bradman Oval.
As a highlight of this years’ Carnival, the Bradman Foundation gifted to every participating player, a special certificate detailing the Marylebone Cricket Club’s Spirit of Cricket and Preamble to the Laws.

Bradman Centre Executive Director Rina Hore said of the gift,

“The Bradman Foundation has always been committed to educating young players of both today and the future in the Spirit of Cricket creed, as espoused by Sir Donald Bradman’s values and his pledge as player and administrator to leave the game in better shape than he found it. To reinforce the importance of the Spirit of Cricket, the Bradman Foundation gave every young player in the Carnival a certificate interpreting the Spirit of Cricket as published by the Marylebone Cricket Club.”

Rina added that they were very well received by all the players and their families.

The bright cricketing talent from across NSW included teams from Bathurst, Lachlan, Hornsby, Dubbo, Wagga Wagga, our very own Highlands players and All Stars, a combined team made up of rotating twelfth man players from the seven participating sides. The annual carnival is a great opportunity for young cricketers to display their talents on the field, learn about the game’s rich heritage at the Bradman Museum and the honour of walking in Sir Donald Bradman’s footsteps. The event started on Sunday and the final on Bradman Oval on Wednesday 18 April, saw Dubbo as the eventual winners.

The tournament was played in a fantastic spirit, and it showed. Respect is central to the Spirit of Cricket and these young players met that standard with flying colours. They will now return to their communities to share their positive sporting values.
