Westbury now looks set to welcome back a stockpile of talent into its ranks ahead of Monday’s Greater Northern Cup clash with Mowbray.
But the pick of the bunch could be 18-year-old star Jake Williams, fresh off a 140 for Greater Northern Raiders on Saturday against Glenorchy.
He has hit more than 250 runs in his last three hits that have included Tasmanian under-19 trials on Sundays.
Raiders teammate Jono Chapman and also one-time Shield batsman Dane Anderson form an imposing lineup.
Westbury are coming off the unusual position off a bye two days rather than seven days later. Mowbray, on the other hand, have a one-day break before fronting up in the public-holiday game.
“It’s still only early on in the year, so you’d still be expecting a few of their boys to be pulling up a little bit sore after a game,” Shamrocks captain Richard Howe said.
“But a few of guys played for the Raiders anyway, so there will be a couple that will be backing up for us.”
Mowbray will be attempting to recover from its poor showing, bundled out for 65 against South Launceston.
Howe wasn’t having any of what was an aberration.
“I mean they made 250 the week before, so a week is a long time in cricket,” he said.
“In the space of a couple of days, I’m sure they’ll put a few things in place to ensure that doesn’t happen again.”
Hosts Riverside hopes to bounce back against a revitalised South Launceston in the other 50-over match.
