THE Benalla and District Cricket Association (BDCA) will again be participating in the time honored Melbourne Country Week carnival next week (February 9).
The BDCA will play in division three this time following three years in division two, and Delatite Cricket Club has a number of players in the squad.
This year Simon Holmes will captain the team, with country week stalwart Andrew Startin providing support as vice-captain.
Although only having four A grade sides to pick from, the selectors have put together a strong group of players with only a couple of our better players unavailable due to family commitments.
The squad is as follows: Simon Holmes (C), Andrew Startin (VC), Sam Hazell, Matt Stevenson, Dean Shaw, Brendan Duncombe, Nick Brazil, Fintan Brazil, Dale Stratton, Rhett Woolley, Nick Abley, Dale Mason, Rumesh Ranasinghe and Nathan Purcell.
Trevor Saker will be the manager/bus driver and Paul “Big Bird” Duncan will again officiate as scorer.
