Carly Fuller named in merit squad for second year running

CARLY Fuller has been named in the Australian Under-15 girls merit squad for the second consecutive year in cricket.

She lives at McKees Hill (between Casino and Lismore) but now represents Queensland.

Carly will train with the development squad at the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane next year.

Her top score at the Australian Championships in Western Sydney was 44 runs off as many balls.

Queensland went through the carnival undefeated before going down against NSW Metropolitan in the final.

She scored a total of 136 runs and took seven wickets during the carnival.

Carly started out in the North Coast Under-15 team at the NSW Country Championships in October.

She was named player of the final after scoring 42.

From there she gained selection to play in the NSW State Challenge but withdrew because she was named in the Queensland Under-15 team.

Carly is now in her second season with the Gold Coast Dolphins in the Women's Grade competition in Queensland. She has played against and alongside Australian players Delissa Kimmince, Jodie Fields and Holly Ferling.

She still plays for Marist Brothers Under-15 and Under-17 teams in Lismore.
