Mac Webster is one of three Cowra cricketers along with Mikey McNamara and Sam Austin in the Western Zone Kookaburra Cup side.

Mikey McNamaram, Sam Austin and Mac Webster have been selected in the under 14s Western Zone Kookaburra Cup team to play in Armidale in January next year.

The boys have been leaders in the Lachlan Council under 14s team this year finishing the inter council series with two wins from three games.

Lachlan coach Marc McLeish said it was little surprise that the boys had made the Western side.

"The three Cowra lads really stood up,” Marc said. 

"Mac Webster was dominant with the ball even bagging a hat trick against Macquarie while Mikey McNamara was solid with the bat getting us off to great starts in every game.

“Sam Austin led the team with some astute captaincy and very consistent efforts with both bat and ball. We had a lot of younger guys in the team that really fed off the way these blokes go about their cricket, I'm very proud of them.”

The carnival begins on January 15 with finals scheduled to be played on Thursday, January 18.
