Brayden shows plenty of ability

AXE Creek's Brayden Oogjes achieved a career-high when he played for Victoria's All-Abilities cricket team at the weekend.

Oogjes captured 1-9 off nine overs and scored a run in the clash with Harmony In Cricket XI on Fitzroy-Doncaster's turf.

The medium-fast bowler celebrated his first wicket for Victoria when a catch was taken in the gully.

A second-year player at Axe Creek, Oogjes was invited to try-out for Victoria's squad following the Cowboys All-Abilities team playing at Casey Fields.

Organiser of the All Abilities program at Axe Creek, Rob Fisher said Oogjes' selection was a fantastic achievement.

"Brayden caught the eye of selectors in matches at Casey Fields and Croydon.

"He was among 22 players who went to a session in the Billy Lawry nets at the MCG."

After starting this summer in Axe Creek's division one team, Oogjes had to fight back from a broken toe and then played in divisions two or three of the Emu Valley competition.

Fisher said the All Abilities program had 24 participants this season.

Since a come and try day in November, 2012, the All Abilities program at Axe Creek has flourished.

Plans are for the Cowboys to field an All Abilities indoor cricket team.
