BankSA Under 12 Statewide Cup to showcase States best

13 Dec 2013 - Community/Country Cricket

South Australia’s best young talent will take to the field when the BankSA Under 12 Statewide Cup begins in Adelaide.

The BankSA Under 12 Statewide Cup will run from Monday 16 December to Thursday 19 December 2013 and for many players this may be the first step to higher honours through their zone representative teams and onto SACA underage squads. Current State players, Kelvin Smith and Gary Putland, have come through country zones to earn the honour of wearing a Redbacks cap at first-class level.

The BankSA Under 12 Statewide Cup includes teams from the 12 Grade Clubs plus the two country representative teams – known as Country Red and Country Black. Players in these two country teams have been selected based on their performance during the BankSA Under 12 Country Carnival held in Adelaide during November 2013.

The aim is to have the ‘best playing against the best’ during these matches, with the most talented country and metropolitan cricketers from South Australia participating.

The BankSA Under 12 Statewide Cup will be used to identify players for the SAPSASA cricket squad for the the 2014/15 season.
