To All BHRDCA U16 & U18 clubs:


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 U16 players, born after 31/08/1998, that play at club level, and that can display the ability, skill level, commitment and cricket character to show our U16 Selectors, that they are ready to be selected in either of the BHRDCA U16 Emus teams. These teams are scheduled to play matches against other VMCU associations from January 5th. 2015 for two weeks. One of these teams will play matches on turf wickets.


Phase one of the BHRDCA Emus U16 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.

I am very pleased to announce that the following players have been selected in the Inner East Emus Dowling Shield team, to play matches in mid January 2015:


Luke Davidson, Blackburn Cricket Club
Lionel Hunt, Mitcham Cricket Club
Brad Moritz, Mitcham Cricket Club
Kyle Rayner, Blackburn Cricket Club

Our congratulations also go to the following for being selected in the Outer East Eagles Dowling team:


Josh Hartill, Heatherdale Cricket Club
Brady Robinson, Heatherdale Cricket Club


The BHRDCA congratulates these players from both regions, and we are sure they will represent themselves, their club and association admirably. I am also very pleased to announce that the following players are selected to continue to the second phase of BHRDCA Emus u16 trails:

Harry Baker, Mitcham CC
Alex Brennan, Blackburn South CC
Daniel Frost, Mitcham CC
Tom Gelbert, Heathmont CC
Nadi Hamzovski, Yarraleen CC
Jack Peters, Heatherdale CC, (also trailing for Scorpions Dowling)
Sam Heron, Heatherdale CC
Ben Johnston, Mitcham CC
Josh Kral, Heatherdale CC
Adam Matthews, Forest Hill CC
Josh Nicklaus, Blackburn South CC
Sean Nathan, Heathmont CC (also trailing for Scorpions Dowling)
Jacob Price-Inglis, Mitcham CC

These players will receive a personal invitation by email, to attend the phase 2 trials.
Please find attached, a letter out-lining the second phase of U16 BHRDCA Emus representative trials for 2014.15 season. Please forward this attached letter to any of your clubs players, born after 31/08/1998, that you believe displays the traits mentioned above.


However, can you please ensure that any nominated player is available to be selected for the matches in January 2015. Also please consider any one playing in a higher age group (eg an U18 team)


It would also be appreciated, if the names and contact details of players you are inviting to attend our phase 2 trials, can be forwarded to me ASAP

Or if you prefer, you can just send me the player contact details, and I will forward on the invite letter. I would need to have these details by Wednesday 5/11/14. Please be sure that contact details are up to date.


Please don’t hesitate to contact me for any further details.

Many thanks
