Consequently, it is seen as the pinnacle of a young cricketer’s junior career. The competition is considered by many to be the toughest U16s competition in the world and is a breeding ground for future test cricketers.
Captained by Ollie Davies and coached by Mike Pawley and Tom Kaye, our U16 squad have been training hard and are primed and ready to go.
The squad is a fairly young one, with 8 of the squad still under 15s and eligible for Green Shield next season.
The final squad is:
1. Oliver Davies (captain)
2. Ned Barnet
3. Byron Bates
4. Aidan Bennett
5. Jordan Brewster
6. Jarod Colyer
7. Luca Franks
8. William Greenland
9. Harry Kantor-Smith
10. Bailey Kenzie
11. Kyle Martin
12. Brynn Mendel
13. Jake Osborne
14. Josh Park
15. Ben Watts
We are also please to confirm that Clint Colyer will be the Green Shield off-field Manager, while the ageless Alan Wright will be the teams game day manager.
