Albany Advertiser - - SPORT - Tim Ed­munds

Two sets of broth­ers from Al­bany will rep­re­sent WA Coun­try on Sun­day in the WACA Pre­mier T20 and colts com­pe­ti­tions.

Teenage twins Michael and Matthew Fer­reira will de­but for the WA Coun­try colts in the first round of the WACA colts com­pe­ti­tion, which has changed to a Twenty20 for­mat.

Play­ing along­side the colts at Tomp­kins Park will be the WA Coun­try XI, which will fea­ture broth­ers Zane and Coen Mar­wick for round 1 of the WACA Pre­mier T20 com­pe­ti­tion against ex­pe­ri­enced clubs Joon­dalup and Melville.

The Melville line-up will likely fea­ture for­mer War­riors and Bris­bane Heat quick Ryan Duffield and for­mer War­riors Luke Tow­ers and Drew Porter.

WA Coun­try re­turn to the WACA com­pe­ti­tion for the first time since 2009-10 when they played in the One Day League with the re­turn set to be an ideal boost for their prepa­ra­tions for the Aus­tralian Coun­try Cricket Cham­pi­onships in Jan­uary.

WA Coun­try has been placed in group D of the com­pe­ti­tion and will take on pow­er­house Clare­mont-Ned­lands and South Perth on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 29.

Zane Mar­wick, who was part of the WA tour­ing squad to Wol­lon­gong last Jan­uary, is again in the ex­tended Coun­try XI squad and is joined by younger brother Coen Mar­wick, who has rep­re­sented the colts for the past two sea­sons.

The Fer­reiras, who play for North County, are again trav­el­ling to play un­der-17s for Mid­land-Guild­ford in the WADCC Shield com­pe­ti­tion.
