WARRNAMBOOL and District Cricket Association newbies Southern Titans are embracing a fresh slate.
The Jones Oval and Killarney-based identity is starting its junior recruiting drive and is determined to give kids the chance to flourish.
The Titans, the result of a merger between East Warrnambool-YCW and ex-Grassmere Cricket Association outfit Killarney, will hold their first junior come-and-try on Sunday at Jones Oval.
It will begin from 11am.
Titans junior coordinator James Cole said the club was keen to welcome both boys and girls of all ages but was specifically urging kids between nine and 14 to join its ranks.
He said the club would embrace kids of all levels as it eyed fielding under 11 and under 13 teams this coming summer.
"We're not trying to pinch kids from other clubs or anything like that, we're more than happy to welcome kids who have never played and get them started," Cole said.
"We'll accommodate anyone we possibly can. We obviously have the two grounds - Jones and Killarney - and we have plenty of scope to do something different with that."
He said while the club was keen to develop relationships with schools such as East Warrnambool Primary School, it wouldn't be reliant on one source for juniors.
Cole said maintaining connections to Killarney was also high on its agenda and would welcome juniors from the Moyne Shire area.
