Sydney Uni Cricket Club has run its annual 'Winter' Development Program, a free coaching program for kids aged between 12 and 15 years, over the past month with some outstanding young cricketers participating in the program.
Following the WDP, the Club held a number of Green Shield pre-season trials in order to select a Green Shield Development Squad. The Club is proud to announce the squad of 31-players that will continue their development over the off-season program:
Thomas Draca (Country Development Player)
Craig Lewis (Country Development Player)
Ben Mitchell (Country Development Player)
Liam Simpson (Country Development Player)
Sessions for this squad will be held at Sydney Uni's Martin Lambert Indoor Cricket Complex on the last Sunday of each month, commencing Sunday 29th May from 9.30am to 11.30am.
This was a very difficult process with plenty of talent fighting for the last few spots in the squads, and for those players unfortunate to miss out, this is not the end of the process. The Club will hold one final Green Shield trial in September prior to selecting the final squad of 15 to contest the A.W. Green Shield tournament in December and January.
We have some exciting announcements for this program to come over the coming weeks, and we are passionate about the program we are going to roll out for this group.
Congratulations to all of those selected in the sides and we look forward to a pre-season of hard work and development of skills.
