Sherriff seeking redemption
Four years ago Aron Sherriff returned from his first Commonwealth Games campaign wanting more, as Steven Maher reports for the Central Coast Express. After going into the Games a red-hot medal prospect, Sherriff, 28, missed out on a medal match. He is all set for another crack at gold medal glory. After another outstanding run of results, Sherriff has been included in the Australian team for this year’s Commonwealth Games in Scotland. The world champion is likely to not only play singles in Glasgow, but is also expected to skip the triples. If he performs as he can, Australia is a big chance to dominate the Games. “Within myself I thought I did enough to make it but until you get the call confirming it you never know; it’s a great feeling,” he said. Sherriff, who bowls for Ettalong, has a double reason to celebrate. He has just been named Australia’s international bowler of the year for the third year in succession. “It’s been a busy time but a great time,” said Sherriff, who this week is competing in the national sides championships in Tasmania. Sherriff is due back on the coast in time to play for Ettalong in tonight’s district grade one pennant match at Halekulani and will back up when the Eagles host Bateau Bay at noon on Sunday.
