Eleven new players have been bestowed with the honour of representing Cricket North's Christmas XI.
With Mowbray veteran Justin Wreaths unavailable, Liam Ryandeer and Saint Nicholas Spencer have been tasked with sharing the new ball and will likely form a dynamic combination.
The team is conspicuously short of a specialist keeper after Riverside gloveman Peter New Year was deemed 'not Christmassy enough', but has allrounders aplenty in Sisitha Carolsinghe, Holly Wood, Cooper Antlers and New Socks and Anders Bulow.
South Launceston games and runs record holder Mark Nuttingcracker has been named coach.
