Players will receive an email next week advising of the training/practice game schedule.

Well done to all players and parents who committed themselves to the trial sessions. As always final selection is hard, and this season was more difficult due to the evenness of talent across the trial squad. The Selection Panel when picking the above squad ensured there was a range of skill sets within the group, taking into account performances in the trial sessions, club cricket and previous season’s representative cricket.


Players who have missed Wizards selection can seek feedback from the Wizards coach, and should refer to the NWMCA website for details on selection in the two association representative sides (U16 players) or contact VSDCA clubs for selection in JC Craig sides (U15). Replacement players for the U16 Wizards in the event of injury / unavailability will be arranged from these respective squads.
