Manly Warringah Players Joel Foster and Oliver Davies have received the highly prestigious Basil Sellers Scholarship for the 2018/19 Season.
The scholarship allows for future stars of the game financial assistance during the formative years of their career.
NSW U/19’s player Joel Foster, who joined the Waratahs last season, displays great talent with both bat and ball. In his first-grade debut for the Tahs, Foster took incredible figures of 8/23, and made match-saving runs throughout last season.
Manly junior, Ollie Davies, is a high-quality batsman who made his first-grade debut last season, as well as making his made First Grade Century not long after. Ollie also captained the Australian U/16s side last year and is a player to watch in the future.
Cricket NSW CEO Andrew Jones said the program allows for future stars to receive the development they require.
“It provides the first signal to our youngest and best players that they might have a future in professional cricket,” Jones said.
Manly Cricket would also like to congratulate Manly Junior and former grade player Aiden Bariol on also receiving a scholarship.
We wish Joel and Ollie the best for the 2018/19 season, and for their future careers. Congratulations!
