ABBEY TAYLOR AWARDED BASIL SELLERS SCHOLARSHIP

 

Congratulations to Abbey Taylor (pictured left) for receiving her second Basil Sellers Scholarship.

 

Abbey has had another outstanding year of cricket representing ACT/NSW Country at the Under 18 Nationals and is also a member of the NSW Transition Squad. Well done Abbey!

 

The Basil Sellers Scholarship program supports scholars and their families with expenses such as education, travel and the cost of relocation from regional areas.

 

Mr Sellers emphasised the importance of scholars balancing cricket and education in his speech to the inductees, parents, cricket officials and guests and also stressed to the scholars the importance of playing within the Spirit of Cricket.
