Green Shield trials set to commence

ESCC welcome all players who are 15 years or under as at 31 August 2014 to trial for our Green Shield team. 

Please download and fill out this form before arriving at the trials.

As previously advised trials will commence on Sunday 3 August at the Sydney Boys High nets from 10am -12pm. Due to many of the boys interested being involved in NSW Academy squads the second day has been altered to 5.30 pm-7.30 pm at the SCG/SFS indoor nets to accommodate the numerous boys who are members of NSW Academy Squads and may wish to try out.

Those trials will lead to the naming of a provisional squad tht will be published on the Club's website.

This season the team will be coached by Rod Foord, Level 2 coach and one of our current First grade players Daniel Roots, both of them are also selectors. The third selector will be Michael Furlong. Their respective cricketing and coaching resumes are available on our website for the boys and parents to view.

It is an integral part of the club's policy that those selected in the Green Shield squad this year  will be become an integral part of the club playing staff and will practice with the senior players as often as possible. Those selected in the final squad will receive their caps at the same time as the grade players in the club's annual ceremony.

The Club takes this opportunity to remind all aspirants for selection of the high quality of Waverley Oval, its playing surface and environs. It is one of the finest cricket wickets in Sydney and presents opportunities for boys who can bat and bowl to excel. The Management Committee of the Club is determined to field a competitive Green Shield team in this season and following seasons.

Players within the Easts Green Shield system will get access to all the coaching resources during the program, which include Club coach and former Australian player Michael Bevan, assistant coach Murray Creed and fitness co-ordinator Wayne Geber.
