Young stars Dharmini Chauhan, left, and captain Stephanie Ellsmore are back to boost the Ghosts for this Sunday’s women’s finals series at Raby Sports Complex.

When it comes to great sport venues in the south west region, local football codes have Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

Cicket and the Camden Campbelltown Ghosts boast their own magnificent facility – Raby Sports Complex.

Several building improvements over a number of years have turned Raby into one of the best grade cricket centres in the Sydney metropolitan area.

Coupled with a club administration that’s always looking to spread the word about Raby, this centre has gained a tremendous reputation in the cricket fraternity.

As a result it attracts some big time cricket events such as national carnivals and other Cricket NSW activities.

Indeed a big event is coming to Raby Sports Complex this Sunday when the semi finals and finals of the Sydney Women’s Cricket Association will be played across the four Raby grounds.

The Ghosts will be fully represented with teams in every division and will be hoping local cricket enthusiasts will turn up to offer them a little support on Sunday.

Many of the visiting sides boast some of the biggest stars of the women’s game.

The Ghosts first grade will be strengthened by the return of their five Women’s Big Bash League players, led by champion Claire Koski.

Virtually every player in the Ghosts XI has played at state or national level in the Big Bash, the NSW Breakers or for the NSW Under 18s.

It is hoped that Australian player Lauren Cheatle will also be available, although this is all dependent upon Cricket Australia.

The Ghosts Under 17s sit on top of the ladder in this tightly fought competition.

Strengthened by the return of NSW Under 15 players Dharmini Chauhan and captain Stephanie Ellsmore, the local girls will be in with a real chance to grab some honours on Sunday.

The semi finals action will start at 10am with the finals at 2pm.

There is no entry fee to the ground, so take the family down to Raby Sports Complex this Sunday to catch some great cricket. There will also be a full canteen running so food and beverages are taken care of as well.
