GYMPIE will be well-represented at the Queensland Junior Cricket Championships from December 17 to 21 by eight enthusiastic young players.

The group gained their places in the Wide Bay sides after selection trials in Bundaberg.

After two full days of playing and training, teams of 12 were selected for age groups from under-12 to under-16.

Club spokeswoman Donna Mitchell said Gympie was well represented at the selection weekend, which resulted in the eight players earning their Wide Bay whites.

Leo Cartwright and Bradley Mills will travel to Cairns for the U12 round of the championships.

The pair recently represented Wide Bay in the Primary School Boys' Cricket Team in Bundaberg as well.

Young gun Rollan Brook was selected in the U13 side, where he will travel to Charters Towers for the week of cricket action.

Jake Vidler will travel to Mackay with the U14 Wide Bay side, while all-rounders Brycen Mitchell, Jarrod Darrach and Nick Carlton will travel to the Gold Coast to play in the U15 age group.

Mitchell and Darrach are also set to represent Wide Bay in the U14 Secondary School Boys' team at the Gold Coast from December 2 to 6.

William Gear will travel to Brisbane where he will take part in the U16 competition.

Mitchell congratulated the boys on behalf of the junior cricket club.

"Gympie Junior Cricket would like to wish them all the best at the championships," she said.
