Will Justin be the next Cricket Superstar?
Hometown: Central Coast
Born in Newcastle, Justin moved to the Central Coast at the age of seven. Soon after, he started playing cricket for Terrigal Matcham Cricket Cub. At the age of 12, Justin suffered a major setback when he was hit by a car and had to undergo extensive knee surgery. He still has problems with his knee, and continues with physio treatment. Despite the accident, Justin resumed his cricket as soon as he was able to. At the age of 13, Justin started playing in the Sydney grade competition with Gordon District Cricket Club, where he remains today. His greatest achievement was when he was selected for Gordon’s first grade cricket team last season, aged 17. Justin’s hero is Mark Waugh, and a few months ago Justin had the privilege of Waugh coming to his house for a training session after meeting him through a family friend. Justin is also a keen golfer, plays baseball and loves to go fishing. He currently works in the family business, “Freddy’s Fishing World”.
