SOME of Gunnedah's best junior cricketers have tested their skills against players from a completely different region.
Two teams from Gilgandra made the two-hour trip to Gunnedah to clash with two local sides.
The sides, consisting of 13 players, were broken into two separate school-grade groups, spanning from grade four to grade nine.
Gunnedah Junior Cricket Association president Andrew Johns said the one-off games came about due to an old connection with Gilgandra.
"An old cricket-work mate of mine is the secretary or Gilgandra cricket and he asked if they could bring some teams," Johns said.
"It was a great day of cricket and we want to thank everyone from Gilgandra who made the trip up for some competitive cricket."
Johns said he was hopeful the partnership between the two associations would continue in the future.
"We're hoping to send a team down there for games next year," he said.
