Cricket takes wicket for Brendan
IF YOU know anything about local cricket, you probably know the Cleaver boys.
For Brendan Cleaver, 16, his life revolves around the sport.
Last season he was a star batsman for the South Services. He now plays in a night-time indoor cricket competition with a few mates and other keen cricketers in a team called Team Woodcock.
The Year 11 student attends South Grafton High School and recently tallied up quite a few runs in the school's cricket competition.
Although Brendan wasn't certain of his career plans, he did know one thing.
“I will continue to play cricket – that's for sure,” he said with a grin.
Brendan works at a local newsagency and said he was aiming to go to university after finishing his Higher School Certificate next year.
Having just returned from a school excursion to Heron Island, Brendan is settling back into his normal routine of work, school and sport.
