Cricket's in Matts blood
TALENTED Terra-nora cricketer Matt Brown has the sport in his blood, and now the teenager is making a mark on his own.
Brown, son of Terranora stalwart and Tweed president Mal Brown, has been selected in the South Queensland Country under-17 side to play in a representative carnival in Brisbane from January 14-16.
Brown was selected in the prestigious side after representing South East Queensland in the McPherson Shield.
South East Queensland won the two-day shield competition, which also involved teams from Wide Bay, Darling Downs and Too-woomba.
Brown scored 35 off 22 balls and took 3-45.
The South Queensland side will take on the Queelsand under-16 team, Queensland Schools and North Queensland in the January carnival. A Queensland Country team will be selected at the end of the event.
Brown's younger brother Christopher has been away with the under-15 South East Queensland team in Charters Towers this week.
