Cricket came into Boyd’s life when he was a bit older, but it’s been the best thing to happen to him, I honestly don’t know what we’d do without it. What cricket has done is give him a community and something he can be really good at. It has given him so much and were incredibly proud of how hard he has worked to get to this point.

For me Junior Cricket’s not just about sport it’s about lifelong friendships, it’s a place for everybody. I really believe Junior cricket should reflect the community, it’s our responsibility to make everyone feel welcome.

Adam is an shining inspirational light for all he is doing for kids like Tim and families like ours, Tim went to book week last week as Adam and tracked down his test number of 381 and his photo. Since meeting Gilly he has been touched by him reaching out and being kind and positive to kids like him. As a parent of a child with autism when you see, hear and sense how a person like Gilly is a champion for a cause like this it makes all our hearts smile and appreciate how blessed we all are that he is who he is.....truly amazing.
