Victorian-contracted players Milly Illingworth and Poppy Gardner have been named for the Country squad, while recent Victorian debutant Aanliya Cheeran will also play for Victoria Country.
Essendon-Maribyrnong Park’s Ira Aery, Carlton’s Charli McLennan and Melbourne’s Indigo Noble, who have been selected for Victoria Metro (Aery) and Victoria Country (McLennan and Noble), will also be eligible for the Under 16 National Championships taking place in January.
Cricket Victoria’s Talent Development Manager – Female, Andy Christie, said the tournament was a great opportunity for young players to test themselves alongside the rest of the country.
“Our players have continued to expand and develop all facets of their game throughout an extensive Emerging Player Program.”
“The level of performance from all players within the Under 19 program has been exceptional. It’s a real credit to the effort they are putting in to continue their development.
“The National Championships in Brisbane will provide a fantastic opportunity for players to showcase their skills whilst coming together and representing Victoria Country and Metro with great pride.”
