Lo­cal tal­ent’s time to shine

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Driveway -

SOUTH PERTH play­ers Alex Rose, Dar­ius D’Silva and Rex Strick­land have all been se­lected by the Western Aus­tralian Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion in the 13-man squad to rep­re­sent WA at the Na­tional Un­der 17 Cham­pi­onships in Ho­bart from De­cem­ber 1-11.

WACA Tal­ent Man­ager Brett Jones said the team was an ex­cit­ing mix of play­ers, who dis­played great char­ac­ter­is­tics.

"They’ve shown they de­serve a chance to test them­selves against some of the most promis­ing Un­der 17 play­ers in the na­tion,” he said,

“Un­lucky play­ers have an op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue to push their claims in Grade cricket and all clubs are do­ing a fan­tas­tic job fos­ter­ing this State’s tal­ent. se­lected and non­s­e­lected play­ers can be safe in the knowl­edge that con­tin­ued per­for­mance and de­vel­op­ment will see them con­sid­ered for state rep­re­sen­ta­tion.”
