Guy Walker and Sarah Chancellor-Goddard have been named the January nominees for the Commonwealth Bank Future Star Award.
Having being named Player of the Tournament at the Under-17 National Championships in December, Footscray Edgewater all-rounder Walker cemented his position in the 1st XI at the Dogs last month.
Walker impressed claiming 2-67 against Ringwood in round 16 and was rewarded with selection in the Victorian 2nd XI that played the Darren Lehmann Cricket Academy at Casey Fields earlier this week.

She was the side’s leading wicket taker and was also named in the Team of the Tournament.

This is her second nomination for the Award after she was February’s nominee last season.
