The Styleness Manly Warringah Waratahs are pleased to announce the Green Shield Squad for 2020-21 campaign.
Captained by Josh Cooper, The 15 man squad is a very balanced side, consisting of 7 players with Premier Cricket experience, 2 country players in Bailey Lidgard (Central Coast) and Tom Karnaghan (Newcastle), and 6 players available for next season.
The youngest in the squad is U/14 batsman Ethan Buchanan who has scored a mountain of runs this year.
Speaking at the Cap Presentation, Captain Josh Cooper said he was excited to be around a great group of guys, and is looking forward to the campaign ahead.
Coach David Gainsford said that the coaching staff was very happy with the preparation of the Squad, with all players in great form.
“Unlike most clubs, we leave our Green Shield selection to the last minute, as it is very important to us that we pick the players who are in the best form, to allow for all of our players to be firing during the Campaign”, said Gainsford.
Kicking off on Thursday 17 December at Manly Oval, the side will play a total of 7 regular season games over the next month, before finals, and like most seasons, will play a pivotal role in the Waratahs club championship standings.
Congratulations to all those selected in the squad, and good luck for the campaign ahead.
