Sydney Uni Cricketer, Ryan McElduff, has been selected in the NSW Metropolitan Under 17 squad to participate in the National Championships for 2016-17.

His selection comes after a strong off-season within the NSW Under 17 Academy Program, under the tutelage of former Sydney Uni Assistant Coach, Beau Casson, which culminated in solid performances in the State Under 17 Challenge over the weekend.

His Metro - Sixers team took out the Challenge title remaining undefeated against Metro - Thunder, Country - Sixers and Country - Thunder teams.

McElduff contributed two 18s, one a not out, in the first two wins against the country teams, but missed out on the runs in a high-scoring final round match against his Metro counterparts.

He also provided some handy overs of off-spin throughout the tournament, claiming a miserly 1-18 from 7 overs against Country - Thunder in the opening match, and 1-55 from 9 overs in the grudge match against Metro - Thunder.

The Under 17 National Championships will be held in Brisbane from 26th September to 6th October, and the NSW Metro side will be out for revenge against the hosts after falling to them in the final in 2015.

Congratulations go to Ryan and all the best in the preparations for the National Championships.
