Kaye and Pawley named as Green Shield coaches as preliminary squad announced

It is with great pleasure that we announce the preliminary Manly Warringah Green Shield training squad for 2016/17.

The Under 16 Green Shield competition is the leading U16 cricket representative competition in Australia, with all Sydney grade clubs represented. Apart from the competition itself, all points accumulated by Green Shield teams go towards the prestigious Sydney grade club championship.

Training Squad (in alphabetical order) is as follows:

  • Ned Barnet
  • Byron Bates
  • Aidan Bennett
  • Jordan Brewster
  • Jarod Colyer
  • Joel Davies
  • Oliver Davies
  • Jake De Angelis
  • Luca Franks
  • Sam Greenland
  • William Greenland
  • Harry Kantor-Smith
  • Bailey Kenzie
  • Oscar Lucius
  • Kyle Martin
  • Brynn Mendel
  • Lachlan Molyneux
  • Jake Osborne
  • Josh Park
  • Ben Watts
Training for the squad of 20 players will commence on Thursday 3rd November at Graham Reserve from 4.00pm – 6:00pm. Training will continue on subsequent Thursdays either at Graham Reserve, Mike Pawley Oval (synthetic) and Manly Oval for fielding.

Following these three sessions a final 15-player Green Shield team will be selected. This will be undertaken by the Green Shield selectors on the basis of current season performance in the Sydney grade competition, Shires competition and the junior representative competition along with performance at training sessions and assessment of team balance.

Some key dates to note:
  • Sunday 20th November – The 15 player AW Green Shield team to be announced and posted here on the MWDCC web site
  • Thursday 8th December – Capping Night and BBQ at Manly Oval for the 15-player team.
  • Sunday 11th December – Trial game vs. Sydney DCC (TBC).
  • Monday 12th December – Trial game vs. Penrith DCC at Manly Oval.
  • Thursday 15th December – Green Shield Round 1 versus Gordon at Killara Oval
Coaching team – Mike Pawley OAM and Tom Kaye

Mike is a Life Member of MWDCC and CNSW, a 1st grade premiership winning captain at Manly. We are fortunate to have Mike back involved coaching again and sharing his expertise with the squad. Tom is a former Pathway player and current Manly 2nd grader. Having been through the junior rep system, Manly/Warringah pathway, and a former Green Shield/Poidevin-Gray player it will be great to have him involved and working closely with Mike.

We are also very lucky to have David Gardiner as assistant coach along with Ross Denny helping with selections and communications.. Roy Vumbaca will also be on the selection committee.
