Congratulations to Kensington U17 players:
- Adam Clements
- Ashley Eckermann
- John Bliss
- Lloyd Pope
- Sean McCullum
selected for the Country Black Team.
Special congratulations to Sean McCullum for receiving both the Batting & Keeping Trophies and the MVP during the recent U16 Country Carnival.
“Players for the country teams were selected based on their performances at the carnival last year and at the recently completed SACA U16 Country Cup. Throughout the week of the U16 Country Cup, SACA Talent Coordinator, Luke Williams, and the rest of his team were closely monitoring and evaluating players’ performances and results. Furthermore, they will continue to do so throughout the fortnight of the U17 Shield as well, as they look to state selections for the SACA U19 squad in the 2016-17 season.
The SACA Under 17 Shield will be played from Monday, 4 to Thursday, 14 January 2016 across Adelaide. Teams will play seven One-Day (50-overs) matches and then one Grand Final on the last day of the event. The competition will consist of 16 teams – 12 Premier Club teams, a SACA U15 team, a team from SAMCA and the two country representative teams.
The SACA would like to congratulate all the above players on their well deserved selection into these two country teams. “
