Brady joins Scorchers

AFTER knocking on the door for some time, Gympie cricket talent Josh Brady has broken through to earn a place on the Sunshine Coast Division 1 Scorchers team competing in the Brisbane first grade competition.

Brady joins the likes of fellow Gympie cricket players Lewis Waugh and Peter Dein as a member of the Scorchers fold, stepping up after a stint in the Division 2 outfit.

And while the Gympie all-rounder may have only just joined the ranks of the elite side, he is already making greats gains towards cementing his place in the team.

Brady smashed 93 with the bat, in his second game at the top, to help the Scorchers at the weekend post a total extending into the high 200’s.

Batting at number five, the Scorchers were languishing at 3 for 20 and beginning to appear in considerable trouble.

Gympie Offroad’s Gold XI player spokesperson Cameron Quinn praised Brady, a former Gold representative, for his performance.

“Josh had an outstanding day on Saturday and is starting to realise his potential,” he said. “He put on a master class and surely cemented his spot in the top grade team.”

Quinn says Brady’s latest success is proof the Gold XI is preparing the future stars of the game.

“Congratulations to Josh from the Gold XI and all of Gympie,” he said.
