BHRDCA has a proud history of competing in the Victorian Metropolitan Cricket Union junior carnival, held in early January each year. A major change to our team structure is that our junior teams are now known as Emus, to acknowledge our strong partnership with the Inner East Metro Emus.


These trials are to identify which of our talented U14 players, born after 31/08/2000, that play at club level, and that can display the ability, skill level, commitment and cricket character to show our U14 Selectors, that they are ready to be selected in either of the BHRDCA U14 Emus teams. These teams are scheduled to play matches against other VMCU associations from January 5th. 2015 for two weeks.


Phase one of the BHRDCA Emus U14 selection trials has been completed. Players were invited to these sessions based on their representative cricket history, and / or their fine performances at club level last season.
From those trials, I am very pleased to announce that the following players have been selected in the Inner East Emus U14 Bushrangers Team, to play matches in mid January 2015:


Matthew Alford, Laburnum Cricket Club
Jett Anderson, Yarraleen Cricket Club
Karan Gill, Donvale Cricket Club
Joshua May, Blackburn Cricket Club


The BHRDCA congratulates these players, and we are sure they will represent themselves, their club and association admirably.

All BHRDCA clubs have been invited to nominate to me additional players that have not yet trialled.
