Sydney Uni's Dominic O'Shannessy has been selected to take part in the NSW State U17 Challenge in Coffs Harbour from 18th to 20th August.

Dom was a member of Sydney Uni's A.W. Green Shield squad for 2016-17 and has another season remaining in Green Shield, but his 6-foot plenty frame allows the Bowral quick to compete against older cricketers in the Under 17 squads.

As a member of the Thunder Country Zone Squad, Dom will take on the best under 17 cricketers in both metropolitan and country zones. The Challenge will see Dom's Thunder Country zone compete with Thunder and Sixers Metro zones, and a Sixers Country zone.

This is an important series of matches, as they will act as trials for the Under 17 National Championship sides, with NSW sending a NSW Metropolitan team and a NSW Country / ACT team.

Sydney Uni wishes Dom all the best for the Under 17 State Challenge and for selection in the NSW Country / ACT team.
