CRICKET: Valleys cricketer, Stephen O'May has capped off a successful year on the pitch representing Queensland at the 2016 Special Olympics Cricket Invitational in Adelaide.

The Special Olympics Cricket Invitational hosts teams from all over Australia, including New South Wales, South Australia and the Australian Capital Territory.

"Our team finished in fourth spot," O'May told The Gympie Times.

"I went pretty well, I got a catch and some wickets," he said.

The carnival was played in a 20/20 format with O'May saying that Adelaide North were the gun team of the tournament.

"They had some good players," he said.

However the highlight of the carnival, according to O'May was a trip to the Adelaide Oval to watch the Queensland Bulls in a one-dayer against the South Australian Redbacks.
