CRCA PLAYER OF WEEK: Billy Kerr pounds pickets at Ellem Oval

CRCA CRICKET: On an Ellem Oval track which helped claim 19 GDSC Easts wickets across two weekends, Brothers' wicket keeper Billy Kerr notched the highest individual total this season.

Resuming on 36 not out upon his return to the crease for week two, the batsman pushed hard on the accelerator amassing a quick fire 100 in partnerships with fellow opener Jack Weatherstone and captain Jake Kroehnert.

At 23 overs into the innings Kerr was only in the 30s but by over number 53 he had raced past 150.

The wicket keeper said he enjoyed the time out in the middle and it could not have come at a better time with only two weeks before the finals kick off.

"Once I got past the first 50-odd I got a chance to play a few more shots and started hitting the boundary rope," Kerr said.

"It was good because it meant I didn't have to run too much so I wasn't tired when it came to putting the gloves on.

"It was good to get a fair bit of batting in heading into the finals."

Kerr's efforts with the willow have earned him the Clarence River Cricket Association's Player of the Week and will receive a $20 gift voucher to use at Toast Espresso.
