Cricket Victoria has released the squads for its upcoming Under-16 Emerging Players program.
One of the names to appear on the list was that of Echuca Cricket Club all-rounder Grace Moyle after a catchy summer of club and representative cricket.
The State Track program offers promising young players the opportunity to develop their cricket in a high performance environment, with the program scheduled to begin at Junction Oval on August 7.
Under the guidance of high performance coaches and professional players, team members will receive expert training in skill acquisition and retention, strength and conditioning, and nutritional counseling.
A regular at the big stage, Grace is a key member of Echuca’s two back-to-back female prime ministers, topping the total A-grade races in the team’s last campaign with 224 against an average of 112.
At the Premier Cricket level, she was a member of the Carlton-Brunswick third eleven winning team.
His eye-catching representative campaign for Goulburn Murray Cricket (GMC) at the Junior Country Week carnival also made waves, compiling 227 unbeaten scores over three games, including an unbeaten 101.
“This is the first step in our Emerging Players Program and a key benchmark for the talented young players arriving,” said Duncan Harrison, Manager of the Emerging Players Program at Cricket Victoria.
“They will get a taste of training in a high performance environment and learn from players who are already playing at a professional level.
Grace will have the opportunity to lobby for Vic Country’s selection at the national championships in January.
“The opportunity to then represent the state at a national championship offers a great reward for their hard work, and based on the talent of these teams, we expect the competition for places to be fierce,” said Harrison.
