He is the first Singleton junior to be picked for the U12’s NSWPSSA cricket side since 1990, and Alex Stafa is currently proving why.
So far throughout the 2017/18 School Sports Association (SSA) Boys Under 12 Cricket Championships at Barooga, the opening pace bowler has “kept it tight and applied the pressure” during his eight over spells.
During the first match they played on Saturday, January 6, he took a wicket (1/20) in their tie with South Australia (116).
And, although his side was beaten by Queensland on Sunday in round 2, Stafa was is fine form – taking 2/18.
An impressive spell that included 3 maiden overs.
Then, after a rest day on Monday, in round 3 against Victoria they notched up a comprehensive win with Stafa again taking a wicket (1/11).
Today, New South Wales face Tasmania.
This morning they won the toss and posted a first innings score of 6/192.
Stafa is currently heading the bowling attack and his mum, Belinda says he has already taken a wicket.
